Shouldn't be using 5W30. Ford Focus uses that, because it has tighter places to get into. Use 10W30 or 10W40.

My preferences:
10W30- Winter
10W40- Summer

Different viscosity of the oil for the changing weather conditions.

Hey, mine is a lil more experienced --like 50.000 miles-- as your's, but I tried using engine flush on my last oil change, as well as diff oil (was using valvoline 10-30) now using valvoline full synthetic 20 - 50. If I could say the ticking when cold was 100, it's now like 40, and when warm, ticking has reduced from 60 to 20.

Wytch, use what the manual says. Elantra and accent may use different oil. Im just going by what I have always used. All cars at my place, Jeep, Saab, and Elantra get 10W30 in Winter, 10W40 in summer. All run smoothly. If you aren't sure, call the dealer and ask them whats best to use, or what they use when they change the oil on Accents there.

dude! i talked to u bout this stuff earlier (i think it was u!) on aol, my sn is cobrar00. anyways, DON'T use 15w40!!! thats what they were putting in my car at my dad's work (they wervice big trucks there and have drums upon drums of it. it was very good oil, but WAY TOO THICK. im running 10w30 now and ticking isn't as much.. its rather cold here so i thought about knocking it down to 5w30. thats what my moms grand am calls for all the time! the thing is, i don't kno what the first # vs the second # stand for in oil. i figure its like you have 5w30, 5w40, 10w30, 10w40, 15w30, 15w40.. is that right? like for each first number there are two differnt viscosities of 30 and 40... and a 10w30 is more viscous than a 5w40... correct? and if u just say "40 weight oil" you need to kno whether your talking about 5, 10, 15 or whatever? so if i were going to step down from 10w30 oil for the winter, id want 5w40, cus 5w30 would be two steps down? ...and is there a 5w40?? haha oil is confuseing

I answered you on the other forum, but if they service big trucks, they are probably diesel engines, and though many oil manufacturers say high quality oil is good for both applications, I doubt it. Diesel engines have very different internals, they work much hotter than gasoline, at higher pressures, and the residues of them are very different, detergents on oils are for different purposes.

IT CAME BACK.... its not near as bad but it came back for few minutes today. It was also really freakin cold so that might have helped it.

Just use motor flush on the next few oil changes and change the oil and filter RIGHT at 3000 miles. That should solve the problem.

THINNER oil should help stop the clacking, not THICKER oil. The HLA passages are small, and the thinner oil will flow into them better than the thicker stuff, especially now, in winter.
