No ... once you start the synthetic you should stay with it ... continue to use the recommended weight. 75000 is really no miles ... This engine should go for 175 to 200,000 properly cared for.

Your auto parts store that sells Fram can give you the proper filter.

I have a 2004 buick lasabre and it has a low oil pressure reading.what should it read.it has 120.000 miles


I suggest that you replace the oil pressure sensor. Change oil 10w30 and use a delco pf 47 filter or wix. Never use a fram filter. Mine has 301,000 miles on it.

My 2005 monte carlo is having trouble starting why?


You dont say how many miles are on the car.If you have 30000 miles the fuel filter must be replaced and every 30000 miles. I can hardly blow through mine after 30000.The gas stations have lots of dirt in their storage tanks.I also add a bottle of STP fuel treatment (red bottle) to consume the condensation (water) that forms in the gas tank.I do this about 4-5 times a year. Also the air filter needs to be kept clean.
I bought the 2001 Monte and now have 175000 miles and still get 34.5 mpg highway.
You must replace the spark plugs at about 75000 miles.
I drop the trans pan and install a new filter and then add new oil at every 35000.
I hope this helps you.

usually the valve cover gaskets are not the cause,the headgsket most of the time are either leaking coolant,oil or both! A Subaru dealer may possibly will be able to identify it properly considering this is a very common problem,usually the drivers side headgasket is the first the first to leak,if this is the case a call to subaru wouldn't hurt they may assist you in the repair, good luck!

It probably is the converter. The check engine light has nothing to do with maintenance at all, nor does it really directly concern the engine. The check engine light comes on for emmission purposes. Such as converter, loose gas cap and all kinds of sensors.

You need 4,6 qts of 5W-20 motor oil. If I were you I'd start right now to use synthetic oil. If you decide to do it - go with "The First in Synthetics" and the best: Amsoil! 5W-20 XL motor oil gives you (guaranteed) protection for 7.500 miles. (Do not fall for warranty cancellations or similar dealership spam. Magnuson-Moss act prohibts cancellations based on brand). Read this: http://people.msoe.edu/~yoderw/oilfilterstudy/oilfilterstudy.html or this: http://www.lesabret.com/filters/filter.html and try to avoid Fram filters. It seems that any other filter is better than Fram. I'd recommend Amsoil, Wix, Carquest (made by Wix), Mobil...
