Question Synthetic Oil or Partial Synthetic?

Which oil is better to use for a 2007 GT? Once I go to synthetic I know I can't go back but I was wondering which is best for the car.

Honestly synthetic is probably recommended and is a lot better than regular oil and "not being able" to switch back and forth is just a myth it doesnt hurt anything. If u switch back and forth that's going to give u like a partial synthetic oil cause u never get all the oil out when you change it

I use Penzoil full synthetic all the time in my 06 GT.

Yes they are the fan blades. I did think about what you said, but next year I'm going to go with different rims and tires. I'm not sure which ones yet? Maybe I might do it for the heck of it just to see how they look

Re: Synthetic Oil or Partial Synthetic?

its not the oil that did it...it was the weight itself. his car calls for 5w20..his pump was not designed to push 10w40 properly...

I think the only way i can get that pic is to use it as a profile pic..So if u see a fan blade with black in the middle its me lol..

I use Mobil1 synthetic, and as Dantheman said, you can switch back whenever you want.
