AMSOIL ?

Thninking about switching to amsoil, running rotella now. 49000 miles, no major leaks. What're your opinions ? I'm mainly scared of developing a leak.

I would stick Rotella I would say if your going to get a leak you will get a leak. But what makes you think you will get a leak?

I've seen quite a few cars develop leaks from changing over to synthetic, or rather the leaks become more apparent. most of thes vehicles were higher mileage though. Why do you say stay with rotella, you don't think I'd benefit from synthetic. Was thinking about doing their trans fluid too.

Yeah, I'm curious because I would have figured that synthetic would be better in higher pressure applications
