Before synthetic=no leak after syn=leak
It doesn't matter what the cause is, the result is an oil leak.
I'm going to have to disagree. I'd much rather see a leak caused/shown to me by switching to synthetics, than let a leak continue to get worse by staying with dino, and then eventually having a more expensive repair from a busted gasket/bad oil supply, or in worst case scenario, a blown engine. Maybe I'm thinking down the wrong track, but switching to synthetic is a smart move any way you look at it.
BTW, switched to Mobil 1 Synthetic at 55k, no problems.
