synthetic oil is better because it is suppose to give you better engine protection,gas mileage,longer intervals between oil changes,no more dry engine startup con is it costs 5 to 7 dollars a quart it will also stop engine smoke on worn engines it will not burn like conventional oil will. be sure to use right wieght oil in your vehicle can change back anytime it will not damage your engine at all i would switch asap,

It is not worth the cost believe me ,you keep your oil changed it will run fine.

listen to what my husband says,he owns a repair shop, good luck,hopes this helps and don,t forget to change your air and fuel filters too.

some people say synthetics will cause rubber seals (like rear main, cam, crank, etc.) to harden resulting in leaks… i used sythetic for a while but switched back to regular. no problems.
