Its probably ok but I would recommend 10w30 for anything with more than 100,000 miles on the odometer.
Also, 5w30 works better in colder temps, the first number is the "cold thickness" and the second number is the "hot thickness". The bigger the number the thicker the oil in basic terms.

I thought I might be able to find you an owners manual online but there aren't any free ones.

Get a flashlight and lift the hood as far as you can raise it. Shine the light in and look for the hook. They are usually a little off centre to the left or right. The catch may pull left or right, or there may be a small three finger pad attached to the underside of the hood which you push up.

Let me know how you get on by posting as a COMMENT to this post.

the fuel pump is in your gas tank. make sure all of or most of the gas is out before you drop the tank. the tank is held on by two straps. once you drop it you will have to disconnect the fuel lines and electrical connections to completely separate it from the vehicle. the fuel filter is simple and is held on by two bolts. just follow your fuel line from your fuel pump and you'll find it. make sure to depressurize the fuel system before changing the filter. also make sure your battery is disconnected before changing the fuel pump.

Bad ignition switch,
Bad neutral safety switch
Bad starter relay.
Bad starter.

If you understand how relays work, you can remove the relay in the car and jump the switch pins together. If the starter motor turns the engine, you problem is the first 3. If not, its the starter itself.

Pull the alternator brackets and front engine brackets off until you get to the water pump. You will also need to remove the fan shroud and then the fan. Remove the water pump and then you will see an aluminum cover and that will be your timing cover. remove the cover and clean all the gasket off the engine and the cover. use a razor blade, and make sure there in no oil or grease on the parts where the gasket lies. Put your gasket on, bolt the cover back on with the new gasket and repeat the teardown process in reverse.

Hi , it sounds like you have caused a vacum i.e. not enough water in the system. You have to check you car when the engine and water has cooled down. The expansion tank is were the water level has a line you must fill it up to the level line with water when the engine is cold. And when its cold weather you have to use antifreeze to top up the level.

check fuses first
then scan the PCM for errors.
the PCM will in fact not allow 0D if there are problems related to PCM or engine loads wrong.

then I suggest that you talk with an auto electrician as to what has to be done to accommodate your wish as what you have done is causing confusion in the light control module and the ECM
understand that lights ain't lights and things like circuit balance , resistance, current flow , voltage and a host of other variables come into the act when you did what you did
