Synthetic oil cleans out thoes deposits and makes the leaks noticeable...By not taking car of the leaks you can have a bigger problme later than now. people thinking that synthetic oil causes leak, is a common misconception.
Hmm I don't know who out there would think synthetic oil would cause a leak....but anyway...regular 5W30 oil is the way to go if You do have a leak of some sorts. I have a very small leak from the oil pan gasket. But it's so small that I don't see the oil level going down on the dipstick. Only when I was using 5W30 synthetic did I have to add 1/2 litre between oil changes.
Check out the archives if you get a chance...or do a search in the forums. Iv have read many posts and corrected a few people that have stated that Synthetic caused there leasks...but like i said before its not true....people with that misconception are out there, as a few of my friends were one of them.
