Going from synthetic blend oil to a regular premium oil? Any adverse complications?
First of all let me tell you that it is a myth that you can not go back and forth between conventional oil and synthetic or in your case synthetic blend. They all mix very well together but why on earth would you not use a full synthetic in every thing? It will keep your motor so much cleaner, and last way longer, new or 150.000 miles used, does not matter. They refine the synthetic oils way way longer to get the impurities out. Other big thing [ OILTEMPERATURE AND WEAR COLD START UPS ] Exceeds and blows conventional out of the water. plus a real full synthetic you can run a lot longer just spin a new good grade filter on or change it. Me my self Ill run Walmart full synthetic in my grand prix and ROYAL PURPLE in my 2013 mustang. I think there all full synthetics are good compared to the old dirty sludge and if all the new manufactures are recommending it now its good. Do you have any motor rebuilders or trucking builders close to you? Just go look at the oil pans to compare the too . I guarantee you will be sold that day and never run conventional again.... PERIOD.

Engine hot/ac off what causes this
Most new generation cars has this feature to warn you that something is wrong. To explain further when your auxiliary fan
is not working on the engine is hot, this causes the high pressure side on your ac system to reach around 350 psi and thru a sensor cuts off the ac compressor. This causes the ac not to work until the pressure goes back to normal.
