With higher mileage vehicles using synthetic I recommend you monitor the oil level regularly..

My pathfinder with 227,000 started burning some oil every 6000km with synthetic so I switched to Castrol GTX. O.K. now.

No! I didn't have synthetic in it since new.

If your changing every 5k then convensional oil like GTX should be ok.

Cheers,

I use castrol 5W30 synthetic. Never any problems. Mobil 1 is good stuff as well.
