Originally posted by AliasJerk: You shouldnt ever switch to synthetic, a synthetic oil should ONLY be used from the start of the car, less then 10K miles. Or else it WILL leak. I Suggest you use a Synthetic BLEND, you can use that at any time, and you dont have to change as often , and it makes the engine run cooler preventing wear and making the engine last longer.
VERY VERY VERY INCORRECT. I and many others have switched to synthetic with NO trouble what so ever. SOME cars will leak, but they already have a leak in their future if that occurs, the synthetic just speeds up the process. Synthetic blends are nothing more than good dino oil, thus a waste of money in my eyes.
And hitman, dude... I'm not gonna say anything mean, just learn more about cars or save the "advice", please.
