Accidentally put SAE 30 NON DETERGENT OIL in car engine!!!


Asked by Jun 02, 2014 at 02:53 AM about the 1995 Chrysler Concorde 4 Dr STD Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I didn't realize it was not for cars. I
have a very slow oil leak in my 1995
Chrysler Concorde (3.3L V6,
approaching 200,000 miles) and I
noticed the oil was a little low so I
bought a bottle of SAE 30 NON
DETERGENT (the back says API SA)
motor oil from the dollar store and
put in less than half a quart (probably
about 1/4th of the bottle). Is this
bad? I drove it once since then and it
seems to run normal. Do I need to
have an oil change done immediately
or will it be ok as long as I don't put
anymore of this oil in? Everyone is
giving me different answers. Some
people say leave it it's fine cause it's
only a little bit, but others say it will
destroy my engine unless I get an oil
change immediately! What should I
do? Thank you!

1/4 of the bottle? in my opinion, no worries.
