Myth: Synthetic motor oils are man-made in a laboratory.

Reality: Synthetic motor oils use crude oils extracted from the earth which go through a synthesis process and use man-made additives in the creation of a final product.

Myth: Synthetic oils are too thin, creating blow-by and oil burn-off in older cars.

Reality: Just like conventional motor oil, synthetic oils have a specific viscosity grade. However, synthetic motor oil contains extra lubrication additives to make the oil stronger and provide higher heat dissipation. Synthetic oils do not affect seals and will not be the cause of blow-by or oil burn off in an older engine.

Myth: Once your engine gets a taste of synthetic motor oil, there's no going back to conventional oil.

Reality: Synthetic and conventional oils are compatible - It is not harmful if you decide to switch.

Myth: There is not any real difference between conventional and synthetic motor oil.

Reality: There are not any real differences in the basestocks used to make synthetic and conventional oils, but there are differences in the additives and process used to make the final products.

Myth: Synthetic motor oil will ruin the seals in older vehicles and cause leaks.

Reality: Synthetic motor oil does not cause leaks. It is 100% compatible with all automotive seal and gasket materials.

I usually only use Rotella T6 and "German Castrol" in my 03 WRX with 150K miles that gets abused regularly and is modified, but for this price I'll go back to RP for a couple oil changes even though my motor consumes oil about twice as fast on on it.

If you have Discover Card, you can cash in you cashback rewards for PepBoys gift cards ($20 for $25 GC) and make this sweeter. I already have two on hand. Smilie

Can I use this synthetic oil on my 2003 Lexus with 100k miles? It has some very light valve stem oil leak. Will this cause more leak? TIA
No you shouldn't. Switching to synthetic now will provably clean up the engine, but also the old, dried up oil that is blocking the leaks. From removal, it will cause you to leak more oil.

Yeah I can't get it to work, either.

I'm debating whether I want to try this or stick with Amsoil. For what it's worth, a friend of mine who is the most knowledgeable car person I know recommends Amsoil above all else, though he probably hasn't tried this brand. He uses it on all of his older vehicles and has had vehicles run well over 300K on Amsoil. Changing filters at regular intervals while using the same oil I believe is what I was told is best. I used the Amsoil that is good for 15K in my older Pontiac Grand Prix. Supposedly, using synthetic can get slight MPG buffs because of less friction in the engine, no idea if there's any truth to that. Buildup is never a good thing so I would definitely go synthetic over normal oils. Use a good oil filter and sea foam your car once in a while.

Just to clear up a few things... This is a good deal and 5 qt's tends to be plenty for many peoples cars as I have a 2006 g35 and find even with it being prone to sometimes burning oil i dont have any issues with my oil lasting 5k. I normally use purolator oil filters (the yellow ones) as they are highly recommended but I still do oil changes every 5k. You probably can go longer then 5k but it tends to be a safe number.

I like the costco deal for the 6 qt boxes of mobil 1 but it isnt EP which is a shame. Either way it doesn't come with a filter so this is pretty solid

Amsoil is good, i just bought new rear diff fluid and tranny fluid from amsoil because they are the only ones who really make GL-4. I think the general consensus among most people is if you aren't racing super hard and are getting your oil changed every 5k most of the known brands are very solid and will work fine. This however is just a very solid price

If you start with synthetic oil, you should continue and never look back. It's not a good practice to switch back and forth. This oil is great for any car. I would address the leak as oil will not fix it for you. and Yes, use Royal Purple if you have a chance vs Mobil 1 or Castrol. (I am only talking about full synthetic oils)
I would be more concerned with proper oil weights than the oil itself. Synthetic or not, it's just a lubricant at the end of the day, and if you change it when it's due, I don't think it really matter if you switch between the two. The weight is what affects engine dynamics

Royal purple is synthetic. If you have a decent amount of miles, guessing 40k+, you shouldn't go synthetic for risk of oil leaks is what I think. I don't drive hard so I just use conventional oil anyway. I change more frequently though. Synthetic can go up to 10k miles per oil change with a filter change at 5k.
Well this info is what I recollect from years ago. Perhaps things have changed because I haven't kept up since I don't use it.
I bought my '94 Lexus ES with 60K miles on it. It had never had synthetic before. I have put on about 100K since then and have used mostly synthetic. No oil burning or leaks.

Your info is still good! Props on the filter change at 5k - this will make the biggest difference.
How does one just change a filter? Don't you need to get under the car and drain a considerable amount of oil before you can do that anyways? If I'm putting the car on ramps and getting under it, I'm just going to do a full oil change, since it only takes about 5 minutes longer.

Those engines are sludge prone. You should always use sythetic in them, change the filter on regular intervals. If you don't use synthetic the sludge will build up faster. The reason is that the exhaust tightly snakes around the oil pan and it all gets super hot down there, the dyno oil breaks down faster.

Wow great deal on great oil. I personally have been using Amsoil in all my vehicles and would be hesitant to change although it probably wouldn't be a big deal. My F-150 has almost 350,000 miles on and I've been using Amsoil in it since my first oil change after bringing it home from the dealership. Never touched the engine other than regular maintenance.
