Changed to Full Synthetic Oil and have a leak.
I didn't do much research before changing my TJ to synthetic. I just read many posts that pointed out how great it was. Maybe I just read what I wanted to read, but.....
I don't know if it had anything to do with it, but I developed an oil leak or two. I got under it and noticed that it was coming from a couple of places. I tightened the valve cover and the oil pan since they were noticeably too loose to hold the oil in completely. The only place I notice oil now after running the Jeep is between just behind the plate of the transmission. Probably the RMS.
Now, for my question.... If I change back to conventional oil, would it more than likely slow the leak or eliminate it? Is there any problem changing back to conventional? I would think that if you can change from syn, you could change back w/out problems.
