I have a 96 Mercury Marquis with 121,000 miles that has always used
5w30 "regular" oil. My local service center that always changed my oil
closed, so I took it to the local Ford dealer for an oil change in
May. 4000 miles later I have oil leaks, hardly nothing dripping (yet)
but engine is now really wet with oil, hard to tell where it's coming
from. I find out that the dealer used 5w20 synthetic oil.
If I go back to regular 5w30 will my leaks stop or do I have permanent
leaks from this snythetic oil. I have read alot of different opinions
on this oil but nothing about what will happen if I switch back.
