Has anyone experienced an oil leak after they changed to synthetic? I am in the process of buying a 1992 NX2000 with 74,000 miles on it and would like to use synthetic. Any opinions?
I am not sure what you are arguing against in terms of what I said. I said that he was tried synthetic and went to a heavier weight SYNTHETIC and the leak stopped.toolapcfan said:It's a misconception Onyxeros. Synthetic and mineral oils of the same weight behave exactly the same, they have to in order to get the ratings they have, it just takes higher sustained temperatures to break down synthetic, hence why it's better than mineral. If you change the oil and you suddenly have an oil leak, it would have happened regardless what type of oil you put in.
