    site with TONS of great oil info:

    www.bobistheoilguy.com.



    If you are going from synth TO dino i would say no. Even those that go to synth after running dino for a while it is not really required anymore.

    take info fwiw but above site is great.

    Most every synthetic oil available now is "compatible" with regular Dino oils. Check the can/bottle and see if it says that. If it doesn't you may want to flush. It shouldn't be needed. The next time you change the oil the old Dino should pretty much be all gone after you drain the first pour of synthetic.

    I personally was tought by my pops to pour about 1/4 of a quart of clean oil into the crank and let it run thru to get rid of any extra firt at the bottom of the pan. I do this for every change. It does initially come out slightly dirt straked then clean like new so it gets some stuff outta there.
