'Syntec' 5w-50 oil
I was getting my oil changed the other day at Jiffy Lube ( I admit,
blasphemy....I didn't have time to do it myself..really! ), and the only
synthetic they had was Castrol Syntec 5W-50 and Mobil 1 10W-30. I know
10w30 win't work in my car, so I went ahead with the 5w50.
Is this a good product? I can't really envision an oil with this wide
of range without some sort of drawback.. With this oil, I actually saw my
oil temperature rise above ~80-90 deg. C. when I ran it for a while at
redline...hmm.. at what temperature will most oil burn/boil in my engine?
I probably won't get it that hot, but something to watch out
for..especially since it's the summer now, and my car doesn't shed heat
