    What's wrong with people that don't notice caps lock? Are you new to typing?
    Are you a native english speaker? I might give more leeway if not.


    Your engine's feelings should not be hurt.

    You shouldn't use sintered oil.

    the shop accidentally put regular in my last car after I had been running synthetic for a couple years. Nothing happened just switched it back to synthetic on the next oil change

    He's not JUST using caps-lock. He wrote the whole thing in caps lock and probably the worst english I've read in a while. Though spelled correctly-ish.

    That's why I said his engine's feelings won't be hurt.

    Wouldn't accept that from anyone in my vicinity. Probably just a troll post anyway.

    Notice I didn't say "use search" or "use the proper forum" or "search the web", or "pull your head out"....

    And you found the caps lock button. Welcome.

    About the only place you're going to use "affect" is when dealing with people's emotions. Otherwise "effect".

    Or gramar.

    Seriously though. You don't want to be judged poorly, and, you don't have to be an english major. I didn't even complete college for decades, and still.. engineering.

    A couple of you guys need to lighten up........

    To answer your question, you will be fine switching from synthetic to regular.
