  • 3447dc oil

    I have 3447DC Engine

    I was told to use 10w-30 Synthetic oil.
    Where I am at I am having hard time finding this type as sytnthetic.
    There is 5w-30 Synthetic oil though.
    Can I use 5w-30 full synthetic instead of 10w-30 synthetic as a substitude?
    Can I use regular 10w-30 oil which does not specify wheather it is synthetic or not?
    OR what other options do I have to use as oil for this engine?

    Also for water pump I can not find SAE-30 type oil as non-detergent non foaming.
    I found SAE-30 oil but it does not specify non-detergent and non-foaming on the container is that a problem?

    What type of oil do you use in a Kohler engine Truckmount?

    Can I use 5w-30 full synthetic instead of 10w-30 synthetic as a substitute? (I think this would be OK though the owners manual does not clarify if it really is ok or not. The 5W is for use in below freezing weather.)
    Can I use regular 10w-30 oil which does not specify wheather it is synthetic or not? (yes)
    I found SAE-30 oil but it does not specify non-detergent and non-foaming on the container is that a problem? (Yes. This is not OK. You might also try to locate air compressor crankcase oil. This is the same stuff with a different label.)
