I'll be changing my oil in a couple of days, and I've been considering
swtiching to synthetic because of the longer change interval, and better
cold weather lubrication.
I'm in "the frozen north", where the temprature hits the -25f mark fairly
often in the winter, and apart from anything else, I'd like to avoid the oil
change I always seem to need to do around Janruary in the cold. I also like
the idea of the oil actually moving when I start the car in cold weather.
The car is a 97 taurus, vulcan 3.0, with about 120000 miles on it. It
currently does -not- leak any (dino) oil at all. Am I inviting oil leaks by
switching to the thinner synthetic?
I was thinking Mobil 1 synthetic, is there a better brand though?
Also, what brand oil filter is best to use, if I want to go to a 6000 mile
oil change using synthetic?
