NEVER SWITCH TO SYNTHETIC!
#657068 - 07/06/04 02:39 AM

I'm so pissed off. I took everyones advice and switched to Mobil 1 sythentic 10w-30 oil. When I pulled the car out of the garage (the next morning) I noticed a small puddle of oil but thought that was normal with an older car switching to synthetic. To cut a long story short, I lost almost 3 quarts of oil in the span of 3 days and now it's throwing oil all over. Mostly out of the breather valve. I put more oil in to have the 4.5 quarts the zetec holds and am changing my oil again tomorrow to 20w-50 so hopefully it'll plug whatever damage has been done. I'm guessing that the synthetic broke down some carbon on the pistons so they don't have enough pressure and it's shooting oil up through but I have no clue. Anybody ever have this problem or know what it might be? ANY help would be apprectiated.


Thanks,
Mike
