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 need information with oil and transmission fluid. My cousin has a Chrysler 300 5.7 and she told me the dealership charged her almost 80 dollars to change her oil and filter. So, i read the handbook and it says mopar fluids for both. Is this mopar synthetic? Is it just a brand name? Can we buy something at Autozone/pep boys for a DIY project?
Is she changing "TRANSMISSION OIL" or "MOTOR/ENGINE OIL"? Transmission oil tends to cost at least $20 more than motor/engine oil in terms of changing it. Bring it to a reliable independent auto shop, they can do it cheaper.

A nonstop drive from Austin back to Houston and I stop at the red light, smooth like engine is not on.
Is that an unusual thing for a Scion? (I'm not an expert in Scions)

Yes, said she needed a special type of oil because of her car. I was like OKKkk... i know the car is atleast 4 years old. I just did a quick look as we drove tonite. I was shocked and she's ready for a transmission fluid change and was dreading the dealer cost. So, i will read the manual spec.again, but mopar (xyz) was stated for each. I know how to change both fluids, if i need 2 help her
That car doesn't need any "special oil". 5w20 or 5w30 will do just fine.

my car is infiniti fx35 2008, never had synthetic oil before (because i involved life time free oil change program at dealership, i dunno what kind of oil they use, but i guess they wont use relative more expensive synthetic oil), so my question is, can i change to full synthetic from now on?

so many nubs in this thread lol. This is a great deal on top of the line oil lol. If you have never heard of this brand, you probably don't need it. Just buy cheaper oil and change it 3-5k and you will be fine.

Any chance that the engine will sputter and blow up if I can't get another RP deal the next time I have an oil change, and I have to resort to something else??! O.o

Yes you can, but you would have to stick to it. It's like changing religions, you are converting to Christianity from whatever religion Wink

I use Valvoline, Motul, Royal Purple and Amsoil on mine and no issues, but make sure it's synthetic.

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)

Not true. It doesn't matter at all.

Yes. It might not be worth the $ but it won't harm your engine.

This is not true. This is a myth. You can switch back and forth as often as you'd like with no adverse effects outside of losing the superior performance of synthetic during the times you are using dino.

You can also mix brands and types, but you should obviously stick to the recommended weight if you are mixing.
