I'll apologize up front for yet another rookie question, 20W/50 in Northeastern summer? This poor car has been sitting so long I can't recall what I used.
In return for your tolerance, I'll share a dumb a$$ moment. After dinner with the wife last week the cool summer evening called. Just before dark, some wine with dinner -perfect. I had put a new starter in that didn't look right (it was a Bosch for an automatic) but it bolted up. I figured it was a new type that didn't need to go into the trans. Started fine. Well, with my wife not beside me I was having fun. I think I was hitting 4Gs in the turns. Maverick would have been proud. Then the grinding started. Loped back to the driveway "OMFG I killed it, I KILLED IT!" Thinking ok, I burned something, too lean?, cavitation during one of the Joey Chitwood turns? Time to pull the engine. Then came to my senses and asked "What was the last change?" Yup the starter. Gear looked a little blue so I had to paint it silver before returning it. What? Still works.
