I could be incorrect here, but I believe the stories on synthetics making leaks worse is from the days of Mobil 1 0w-30. Now that they have more "conventional" multiweights, the problems don't occur as often...

For changing the transmission fluid... Not a big deal at all. Get a kit from Partshop. Wait for it to arrive... Then do a search here to get info, it's been done before. You MUST drain the torque converter, so I start there (if you can't get that to work, you are out of luck...). Really it's the only pain. The biggest thing to remember is to be absolutely meticulous - keep ALL foreign matter out of the pan.
