Synthetic Oil Basics
Technically, Synthetic Oil originates as traditional mineral based motor
What separates the two is the level of advanced engineering, refinement and
criteria that goes into this modern engine lubricant.
In short, there is no other routine maintenance contributor that can
provide better protection, performance and longevity than today's Synthetic
Extreme Weather Protection:
Under early morning sub-zero winter starts or summertime high temperature
stop-and-go traffic, Synthetic Oils are engineered to deliver vital engine
protection and reliable performance year-round.
Cold Weather Pour Test:
In this laboratory test, a Synthetic-Oil and a Synthetic-Mineral-Blend have
been frozen overnight at minus 40 below.
This pour test illustrates conclusively the cold-start readiness of
Even after six minutes, the blended oil can't keep up.
And, those white globs you see are wax - a standard component of
conventional mineral-based motor oil.
Clearly, Synthetic oil is the best way to ensure that your vital engine
components are adequately lubricated during cold cranking.
New & Old
With very few exceptions, Synthetic Oil is a wise choice for all new and
Modern engine components are built to higher tolerances and levels of
precision and the superior lubricating properties of Synthetic Oil deliver
the finest day-to-day protection against wear.
Older-engines, performance-engines and power-plants-under-heavy-load can
all benefit from the advanced lubrication and low-abrasion attributes of
In all situations, engine seals and gaskets are protected and remain
pliable and effective.
All major auto manufacturers support and specify the use of API certified
lubricants and Synthetic Motor Oil meets and even exceeds all standards and
The advanced additives developed for Synthetic Oil help contribute to
cleaner and more efficient operation during the entire span of the
recommended oil change interval.
Factory Warranties remain intact, un-compromised and supported.
In any case, the best warranty is the one you never have to use and proper
routine maintenance is an effective way to achieve that long-term goal.
Always check your manual and adhere to the manufacturer's recommended
Today's Synthetic Motor Oil is fully compatible with traditional mineral
This means that you can safely upgrade to synthetic oil... or in a pinch,
switch back or partially top-up with conventional mineral oil.
When you factor-in a decrease in engine wear and fuel consumption,
upgrading to Synthetic Oil can add up to long term savings and better
performance throughout the life of your vehicle.
Ultimately, the goal is for fewer repairs, so that you and your car can
spend more of your valuable time on the road and not in the shop.
Since they were first commercially introduced in the mid seventies,
Synthetic Motor Oils have constantly evolved to serve the needs of motorist
and the cars they drive.
Today, there is no better choice than Synthetic Motor Oils for maintaining
engine reliability, performance and protection.

your engine lubricant and maintenance needs.

Here is the 'uncut' version of the oil change video that I did some time
ago, the one thing I wish I had done differently in this video is that I
would have shown putting a little bit of oil into the filter before
installation as this would help with lubrication during start up.

Regular Oil vs Synthetic Oil -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
Lately I've been seeing a lot of posts over at the forum talking about
switching to synthetic oil with less than ideal results. Instead of typing
out the same answer over and over I thought I would make this short video
to help explain my experiences with synthetic oil. I'm not saying
synthetic oil is bad, in fact it has it's place but my opinion is that
place is not in your 15 year old Toyota or Chevy. The reasons as explained
in the video are that synthetic has different flow characteristics and can
actually cause your engine to leak oil and run noisy. It's perfectly OK to
run conventional oil of the correct viscosity and change it on a regular
basis. You don't need to spend the extra money on synthetic oil if your
owners manual does not call for it.
I look forward to your comments on this.

Fram Oil Filter Failure, High Performance 2804-1 VW Ferrari DSCN0625
Keep those comments coming. But your fingers on a keyboard won't change the
three things below.
1. Many Ferraris you'll see at a car shows still run this filter.
2. The cheapest price I've found is from Summit, $13.95+shipping. One guy
on eBay sells for $16.95 with free shipping.
3. Most important, this mode of failure on the V8 motor is well-documented
on the internets, for example, here's another video, different owner, same
filter, same engine:
Here you can find descriptions and some stills of the same type of failure,
different owners, same filter, same engine:
Different owner, same experience here:
Please see also my new video, "UFI Spin On Filter teardown". The UFI did
not collapse in similar service:
Otherewise, generally this is the 2nd time I've discovered this model of
filter had collapsed the inner perforated tube hard against the standpipe,
significantly reducing the flow area. ( Both were long removed from
Ferrari service before I cut open the first one ) This mode of failure of
the 2804-1 is apparently ubiquitous on the 308 series Ferrari's, just a few
cold starts or track time will crush that perforated tube.
