One small concern from someone with a little experience with oils, be careful putting a synthetic oil in your engine. Newer vehicles are almost always fine, but older vehicles can start leaking oil pretty bad. Oen it is with vehicles that are prone to have that problem, but before one switches oil to synthetic on a 10+ year old car, be careful.

Also, old age can do this, too. Such as a rusted oil pan, but I live in a place with a rough winter.

So it is a good idea, but in case this wasn't mentioned, I thought to include it. I didn't read the second page through the fifth, just first and last.
