Is all synthetic oils, interchangeable?

Can you change from one synthetic to another without any problems? Reason I ask is some of the different synthetics have the cleaning chemicals in them and others do not. I do not want to wash the oil off of my parts by changing from Valvoline Synpower 5w20 to say Mobile 1 Synthetic and ruin my engine!

YES, you can change synthetic oils on every oil change no problem. Do not recommend mixing them together or adding oil additives.
