    Ok so after i did my trans/head swap, my car is now leaking oil from the driver side and it looks to be coming out between the block and cam pully. We attempted with a impact to get the cam pully bolt out but it didn't budge so we managed to swap the head and leave the cam bolt in. We didnt...

    If you have read my other thread you will have noticed this already but, I recently bought some Castrol Syntec 5W-20 for my car, in hopes of better engine protection. After doing further research it appears that Castrol Syntec really isn't even synthetic oil... Is this really the case?
