Synthetic Oil, Regular Oil, and Switching

Quick question:

I found 5 quarts of synthetic Castrol on clearance for 10 bucks. There are a couple of jugs of it available. I've always used regular in my vehicle. Could I switch back to regular in the future without issues with wear and/or leakage?

Thanks.

1) I bought synthetic b/c a 5 quart jug was on clearance for 10 bucks.
2) Mentioned it to the wife who said her mom's mechanic said you have to stay with synthetic.
3) I replied, "that sounds like horseshit"
4) Sought advice of Planet to be absolutely sure.

I don't really care what type of oil is in the car as long as it is clean. I'm a cheap bastard.

I run synthetic in both my cars and change it every 7,500 to 10,000. The 3,000 mile rule is just salesmanship, like visiting the dentist every six months.

5000-6000 is fine for regular bone oil.. Check the manual, some Toyota engines recommend 7500

You're right, that is complete horseshit. I fear her mom's mechanic is hitting the crack pipe.

it's much more important to change out the oil when it begins breaking down than it is to use top dollar brands & types.

I use synthetic oil because it does last longer before it breaks down and I hate handing over $50 for an oil change. I am a cheap **** as well. I even change mine out during times I am set to handle it.

Yeah, it all depends on what kind of driving a person is doing as well. If a guy is going up and down the highway it's one thing, but is a guy is playing Bo Duke up and down dirt roads a lot, obviously one is going to have to dump their oil more often.

Any ideas?
you or someone probably left the cap off an overhead cam motor and it got all over the exhaust manifold most likely.

A leak wouldn't fix itself. And it could take quite a while for the smell to go away
