Re: NEVER SWITCH TO SYNTHETIC!

Just wanted to clarify some things about synthetic oil use. I have customers who have successfully switched to synthetics with over a 118,000 mileson their cars; and with cars that were 36 years old and there was no knowledge of their actual mileage might have been.. With that said, here is the caveat:

When used in mechanically sound engines, AMSOIL Motor Oils can reduce oil consumption. Under test conditions, a reduction of as much as 42% was demonstrated for prolonged periods. However, this should not be taken to mean that AMSOIL Motor Oils are “cure-all's” for engines that consume oil because of mechanical problems.

Here is the recommended procedure for changing to AMSOIL Motor Oils. In older vehicles or those with high mileage, it is advisable to use AMSOIL Engine Flush first. This will ensure that the engine is clean and free of any accumulated contaminants which might have an effect on the service life of AMSOIL Motor Oils. In all cases, it is good judgment to install a new AMSOIL Super Duty Full-Flow Oil Filter (SDF) every time you change oil.

The engine in question sounds as if the oil passages were clogged by contaminates and oil sludge which was loosened by using Mobil 1....

A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing.
