    Switching from dino to synthetic oil

    I've done lots of searching and reading on whether or not to switch to synthetic oil. I have 16k on the car and am planning on doing the switch this weekend. My question is how the change should be done. Do I just drain the old dino completely and add synthetic? I've heard of people using auto-rx to remove any junk before running synthetics.

    So my question is how do I go about making the switch?

    If I missed a thread someone please excuse my ignorance. thanks

    just make sure the car is fully warmed up prior to change and drain while as hot as possible. dont burn yoruself!

    otherwise just make the change.

    for good measure maybe run the first change less miles than you usually would before a change but @ 16k i wouldnt sweat it.
