Important! High oil pressure does not equate to good oil flow

A good read, IMO, and perhaps correcting a common misperception..

I always learn something from HotRodRoy, who stopped by for a look and the inevitable chat. One topic was oil viscosity.

A professional mechanic pal of mine said they oft use 10W60 synthetic in newer (Teutonic) cars that are prone to oil leaks. I am considering that oil at my next change in a few cars.

I searched (not with google) and found: http://lubricants.s5.com/oil_pressure.htm
Bottom line, is to "follow they engine builder's recommendation", says Roy. :w
