    I heard Mobil 1 isn't a real full synthetic anymore, Run Castrol Edge through it.

    How long ago was this? If you put 5.5 quarts in then at least 5 should come out unless you have a serious engine problem.

    Stick with Gastrol man, you don't want keep on switching different types of oils through your engine.

    Engine making noise, oil filter dry, and only 1 quart of oil comming out of pan......Engine could very well be toasted due to oil starvation.,

    Switching oil brands isn't going to make much of a difference if any at all.

    I was told if you plan on switching to synthetic you keep running synthetic through that engines life. What I ment was types of oil not brands..

    You can switch from Dyno oil, to synthetic as many times as you want. No harm will be done to the engine.

    Yeah it sounds like the engine is toast. The oil should disappear like that without some kind of warning like blue smoke in the exhaust or oil present in the coolant. Are you sure you put the full 5.5 quarts in? I believe one member mistakenly added oil to the radiator. Either way this is why I check my oil level every time i fuel up.

    Ah ok, I just remembered my friend telling me that when I was at his shop. Because I was planning on running synthetic through my engine.

    Will oil go bad if you let it sit for a long period of time? One of my dad's cars hasnt had an oil chang in about a year, but only because it never gets driven, so it just sits. It has Mobil 1 synthetic in it...

    Do they self test when you turn the key to on?

    Yeah it can. Oil breaks down over time even if it is just sitting.
