Re: The Definitive Oil Explanation Thread
wow, your friend is stupid. heavier weights he may be thinking are good to seal up all the gaps from the wear on the engine but i would stick w/ 10w/30 at max or the stock 5w/30/20. general rule of thumb is when u do an oil change u do not want to go more than a 5w deviation. so what do u have in there right now? if u do go synthetic this late in the game u will notice one thing.... oil will pour out of every little seal gap you have. it is just the nature of the beast. it will do that until it gets clogged w/ dirt . i personally say keep with what u have been doing in this stage in life.
