You did not say how many miles the car has, or what the previous oil change
history was. But I would start out with 10W-30.

If your car has bit too much smoke in the exhaust (after it has warmed up)
or uses more than a quart of oil every 3000 miles, then I would switch to an
oil that is designed for high mileage cars (there are several brands
available at any discount or auto parts store).

I have a 97 Camry and the oil filler cap has the recommended oil
stamped on it -- 5W-30. The alternative recommendation in the manual
is 10W-30.

5W-30 is for improved fuel economy. For these cars go with the thicker
alternative 10W-30 unless the weather is cold.
