There are times when it is wrong to use synthetic engine oil in your car.

Synthetic oil has cleaning agents that break down sludge and keeps the engine clean, the problem is when this reaction happens to fast and the engine is really contaminated, it becomes a big problem for the pick up screen filter. It gets blocked!!! When this happens, oil pressure drops and engine stops getting the right amount of lubrication.
