My dad put regular oil instead of synthetic oil into my car.

I just found out after 8000kms that my dad put regular oil into my car this one time he took my car to a chinese place on kingsway. I drive an 07 Acura TL s-type and it's suggested in the manual book that synthetic oil is to be use only. Guys, give me some input on whether this will cause damages to the engine later on? I'm pretty choked at him right now but It's father's day so I'll fight him next week lol jk.

I will not fail you, but I see you got a fail already. The fail could be due to one of at least six reasons.

Does this vehicle "belong" to your father? Did he take it for a joy ride?

In any case, be nice to your father. Looks like he takes very good care of you.

I dunno whats worse:

-If its your car, why is your dad taking it in for an oil change?
-If its his car, why are you whining about something he did to his car?

shit you better flush it out with syn oil ASAP!

otherwise the head gasket is gonna go, and you wont be able to engage your SOHC vtec, massive amount of engine oil shall be consumed.


Do it before its too late, since your car is use to synthetic oil

The flux capacitor will rupture taking out the muffler bearing leading to total mechanical chaos.




It'll be fine just tell your dad to change his oil and use synthetic next time

i heard tht if you use reg oil on a premium car, the engine starts spewing oil (kind of like the BP well in gulf of mexico) , and eventually it enters into the cabin and stains and ruins the interior. tell your dad to put aside 2g aside for clean up.


has this happened to anyone else?

How would a speed bump knock the muffler off my Jeep?

For fuck's sake...

No, putting dino oil into that engine wont cause any long term issues. If you're overly concerned, simply do an oil flush and put in oil you feel comfortable with.

Otherwise, I'm shutting this thread down before I start handing out points and/or banning people.
