    Pennzoil synthetic 0W-20 has always been used in mine.

    2.4L Engine Oil
    SAE 0W-20 API Certified Engine Oil, meeting the requirements of Material Standard MS-6395 such as MOPAR, Pennzoil, and Shell Helix. Refer to your engine oil filler cap for correct SAE grade.

    You should use 0W-20. 0W-20 is only available in synthetic.
