Protecting gunk in the engine is pure garbage!!! Do not fall for it, a clean engine is a happy engine. You may experience small leaks getting worse as the synthetics flow in small gaps better but that is precisely why you use it in the first place. If you do get leaks that get substantially worse repair them.

Please bear in mind that any gunk in the engine is NOT supposed to be in there and it will not help keep anything tight or in tolerance. There is no such thing as a "good resin".

IF you use a synthetic and want to extend your drain intervals you need to; #1 change the filter at normal intervals and #2 get an analysis of the oil at normal drain intervals to make sure it is still good. Analysis is the only way to make sure your oil is still doing what it is supposed to do. Please let me know if you need help in sampling your oil or want more info on what it entails.
