I do not know if this is the same as the Castrol synthetic that I
purchased from Blau and used on my 1986 4KQ, but I have not been overly
impressed with it. Shifting seems to be not as smooth, almost notchy. A
friend and I changed the oil simultaneously, and he changed his again
immediately thereafter for the same complaint. I have been lazy, and
have not changed mine yet, but I will soon, and I am going to try Mobil
1 synthetic.
