    And engine runs well, no smoke or any smell coming out.. So at this no worries, just checked oil regularly...

    15w-40 is thicker than 5w-30. 15w-40 is mostly used in hot weather like summer in desert areas. It is thicker & may slow down the leakage. If you use it in very cold weather, it may be a little harder to start the car.
