    Millions of threads discussing oil on here, what have you been using? Assuming this is your first oil change since buying it (or having it done by others) you're probably safe to go with any conventional or high mileage 5w-30. Believe it's 5 quarts without changing filter, 5.5 with.

    The oil fill cap tells you what weight oil to use.

    I tend to pass on high mileage oil unless there are already leaks. Which there almost certainly is at that mileage, but, fwiw.
