correct oil and filter for 2008 Passion

Maybe I have over researched to where I am now totally confused which oil to use in my 2008 model. Found a site that said Mobile 1 Formula M 5-W40. I live in deep east Texas with a pretty hot climate. I will be driving mostly to work and back 6 miles one way and no interstate driving. When I called O'rileys to check on that oil they could not find it and said their book called for a 5-W30 or 0-W30. What should I use? I have 85,000 miles on it now. Also what is the best oil filter and part number? When I started looking that up it opened up another can of worms!!

Mobil 1 0w-40 European Formula. A Mobil 108 oil filter will fit. Look at the decal near the engine compartment lid.

Buy oil according to the temps where you live. Forget the factory specs. It's a Mitsubishi engine, not Daimler or Mercedes. I live in South Carolina, southern, and run 5W30 in winter, 10W30 in summer. That and a quality filter and you are set.

I live in SW Louisiana same climate as you for 2 years I’ve been running Mobil 1 0W-40 synthetic European and a Mobil 1 filter. The filter you can pick up at autozone for around $8 and at Walmart you can get the 4quart jug of oil for $22

What he said. Mobil One oil works in all temps. 110 degrees to minus 15 degrees.

I am in New Orleans, same temp rating. I use Bosch 3300 filter and Castrol Full Synthetic High Mileage 10-40 and have over 250K miles on the car, I change oil every 8K-10K miles ( 8K in the summer months and 10K in the winter months)

Pennzoil Platinum Euro 0W-40
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Pennzoil-...5-qt/163165881

Oil filter is Fram 6607 or equivalent...

However, a Fram 7317/Purolator 14610 also fits, and is an inch and a half longer. Oil capacity is exactly 4 quarts with the longer filter...

I like the Wix 51358 or 51358XP...

All oil companies make it mobile is the easiest to find
Make sure any of the brands have a spec. MB229.5
Read the back label.
This spec. Is important
I have seen cars not using the correct oil start burning oil when they get higher miles on them.
