Not only the brand important, the selection of range also will impact the car performance...
Previously was using wrong range on 5W-40 on Myvi so i feel not really perform...

What is the different between 5w20 and 5w30 and so on?
I just simply buy shell engine oil but without seeing their range... 
Will damage my car?

I can suggest you the shell helix ultra, it can give your car engine an excellent protection from wear. So, the engine wont damage easily, before that i was irritating what product to choose as my engine was easily damage, now it was less problem after my husband try this product.

I have another vehicle which is proton Inspira the other day there was a promoter recommended me to try out shell helix engine oil and it turned out to be quite nice as well

i am driving myvi now and i chose to use Castrol GTX Ultraclean 5w-30 since it states that it is specially created to prevent the harmful build up of sludge.It reduce oil deposits and provide protection for our engine. But i guess there will be some other engine oil that is more superior and not so costly when compare to this

xWy are multiweight oil.

w(stands for winter)

x = highest viscosity rating when in cold conditions
y = weight of oil when warmed up in the engine

5w20 = 5 winter rating when cold and design to lubricate approximately like a 20 weight oil when hot.

i prefer shell also coz I always go outstation and sometimes quite far, what I can feel my engine heat not too hot and not having any prob for now, quite satisfied and will stick with shell as long as it protects my engine, not dare to try other brands.Other benefits i think it reduces oil consumption also.
