Actually, preventing breakdowns is how I first heard about Synth oils back in
the late 70s. I was off-road racing and just had a new engine built for my
single seat buggy. The engine builder (who was also a mech. engr.) told me to
use only synthetic oil (pre Mobil-1, I think). He said the film strength was
so great on synthetics that if I punched a hole in my oil pan I could
probably go miles to the next pit with no oil pressure and not seize the
engine (no mean feat in the desert)...so I've used it ever since.
Re: Marc's comment on MTL - good stuff but for manual trans...my Jeep is an
auto so I used Mobil-1 ATF.
