When I brought it in after my second oil change when it wasn't even registering on the dipstick, I alwats wonder if they didn't put enough oil in and damaged it or the salesman that drove it beat on it severely.
Anyways, when I go to full synthetic do I have to change the oil, and drive it for a few hundered miles to flush it out or just change it?
Thanks for all your opinions.
You can just swap it, no flushing or anything needed.
