Engine Performance problem
1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 159000 miles
I bought this car about 5 months ago. Runs great but oil was super black so I took it to a Jiffy Lube type place for an oil change about 3 months ago (and 3000 miles ago). They suggested using sythetic oil because of the cars high mileage. I agreed, when I got home my boyfriend agreed also and the car has been running great. NOw it is time for another oil change (oil is again super black) and my boy friend wants to change it himself. We have had several local auto parts store employees tell us that going sythetic was a huge mistake and that now we cannot go back to regular oil. Please help us decide which way to go. I want this car to last as long as possible and everyone seems to have a different opinion on sythetic versus regular. Thank You.
have the same problem?
