    The problem is that this work on your vehicle, for the
    most part, absolutely has to be done. You may want to spend the extra money to
    get a truly synthetic motor oil. This is why the old practice of changing straight grade oils to
    a heavier viscosity in the summer and a lighter viscosity in the winter
    is no longer necessary.
