[Help] What Type of Oil to Use in a 1994 Nissan Sentra?

I have a friend who has a 1994 Nissan Sentra and wants to know what type of oil to use in that make/model. I tried searching the web, but couldn't come up with anything that could help. Would anyone here have any idea what type of oil to use in this car? Thanks.

The oil cap will probably say either 5W20 or 5W30 on it, but being a 1994 Sentra, it probably has too many miles on it to put oil that light. If the car has under a 100,000 miles, I would recommend 10W30, if its between 100-200K, then 10w40.

For vehicles with over 200,000 miles, I'd recommend 20w50.

Should be 5W-30/10W-30 depending on expected temp, AFAIK no Nissans of those years used 5W-20, and none do now.
