    Sounds like me when I bought mine. Got tired of fixing my old cars. Itís been a great 5 1/2 years of not spending hundreds in repairs or getting towed home every couple of months!

    I’ve switched over to 5w30 synthetic. The car was using some oil with the 0w20. Not like a sieve but noticeable. Much better now. I must have gotten one of the slightly imperfect engines.
