    That is not a good sign at all, i would get oil in it ASAP and wouldn't drive it. Would think you need 5/30 for long life service or 5/40 for fixed service intervals.

    I would just get some oil in pronto, now is not the time to choose a brand etc. Some Mobil 1 ESP 5W-30 Fully synthetic will be all good.
