Re: 98 Ford taurus se which brand of engine oil is better?

I use Mobil 1 in my cobra. Swapped it in after 20 miles. I even went to the extent of adding some flush to make sure there was nothing in there prior to the change over.

I prefer synthetics because they don't break down in heat or long term use nearly as much as natural lubricants. They also tend to leave less deposits. Overall they can also be cheaper to use as the replacement period is 2-3 times what you'd expect for non-synthetic.


It is going to be a matter of choice. BUT remember that th less expensive route is not always the best route and will cost you more in the long run.
