Synthetic Oil Q&A from Yahoo Answers

Found out that new cars that use synthetic from factory like mercedes don’t require oil changes until 13,000 miles. Does that apply to any other car that uses synthetic oil too?

I have a 2000 v6 honda accord and it needs an oil change. I want to switch to synthetic but I dont know if it will be better to switch to full synthetic, synthetic blend or just stick with conventional.

Is synthetic oil really worth the money or is there not very much difference between the non-syn oil??? A non-syn oil change is like $25.00, give or take while a synthetic oil change is like $40.00 to $50.00.

If you start using “synthetic” motor oil instead of regular oil can you go more miles before you have to change it? I have a 1993 ford taurus 3.8L automatic GL and use regular 5w-30 motor oil. I change the oil every 5000 miles.

What are some of the best synthetic oils for cars and trucks are they better to use than regular oil?

I have a 2005 Subaru Forester XT. I’d like to buy the synthetic oil myself and have them change the oil at jiffy lube or whatever garage will do it.

I have a Honda S2000 its an 01. Till now I’ve been using full synthetic when I get oil changes, but it’s so expensive. Can I switch to mid grade or even just regular or will that mess me up? Thanks for your help!

I just bought a 1994 BMW 740i and got a full synthetic oil change, the first time I’ve ever gotten one. The sticker the oil change place gave me for my windshield still says 3000 miles till the next change, but I’ve had alot of people tell me synthetic oil changes last longer.

I havea 99 corolla with 90k miles on it and i was thinking of switching from regular motor oil to synthetic. Good idea or bad idea? What are the advantages of synthetic oil over regular motor oil?

Okay i have started using motorcraft synthetic oil and filters on my fords. This specific ford has 158,000 miles. (2001 Ford Windstar) I have changed the oil every 3000 miles. Roughly every month.
