switch to synthetic oil
 
i know a lot of you guys use synthetic oil and don't use regular oil.

my commute is about to increase to about 1:10 each way. i would like to switch my oil to synthetic...

now the main question is can i switch the oil in 1 shot or should i switch the oil in increments?

i have roughly 17k on my ridiculously fast 3.7 engine:D

Wow, Irf is ponying up for Synthetic Oil?

I'm gonna check this IP to make sure it is him. lol




Just change it all in one shot. Don't worry about it. It's not like your engine has 100k on it and you are just changing to Syntheic.

You can switch with no problems at all. I run nothing but synthetic in all my vehicles and have done so for years. You can also add regular oil if you need to and switch back any time. Synthetic and dino oil are compatable.

what oil does the 3.7 use? 5w-30? Thats what the 4.7 uses and I suggest the mobil1 extended performance 5w-30. I've used it for years in everything from a 600 hp 3000GT to my wifes Lexus IS.

Yeah I changed to Synthetic in my high mileage Jeep. I jsut made sure that all of the old oil was out but leaving the drain plug out and pouring a case of Royal Purple in it and wait til it drained. Everything's good now but I'm switching back to Mobile 1.

Warning: Do not put synthetic Oil in the 3.7 engine It is already too fast, anything more and I cannot guarantee your safety
