Question about Oil changes,and running out of oil

Question about Oil changes, I have a 95 GMC Sonnoma that is leaking oil, Which I know about. Its due for an oil change but since it keeps running out and I keep adding more do I actually need to get an Oil change? I already bought a new car rather than fix it, but Im moving this weekend and driving over 600km each way.

Oil gets acidic and corrodes if left in the engine too long. 6 months is ok if you hardly ever drive it but do not leave it in much longer.

My 2000 gmc sierra is leaking oil on my driveway more than normal

It's not good to Switch back to Regular oil after using Synthetic. Use the High Mileage oil. It will help a Little. Still Cheaper to replace a Gasket or two than a Rebuild. Got 214,000 + Miles on my 95' Silverado and No Leaks with High Mileage Valvoline 10-40.

1994 GMC Safari Oil leaked out for no reason. Put more oil in...look under van and oil is leaking like a water fall. Turn Van off oil leak calms to a trickle. Other than the oil water fall the van runs...

Check the oil filter adaptor bracket. My 1993 Safari had the same problem, and the adaptor bracket and seal were bad. Replacement fixed the leak.

Truck is running sluggish

Your valves may be too tight. Try to retighten them using the loosen until it clacks and then tighten one full turn. Leaking oil can be blowby.
