Nuts, this is not good news. My car has 70k on it and I'm starting to think about a fluid change, but I don't know what to do about the fluid. This is not a job I feel I can tackle myself, so it's going to be a one-time change at an indy shop yet to be determined.

Question: from some searching, it seems that some Dex VI fluids like Valvoline are full synthetic, but Castrol may not be. Could that be the difference? Thoughts?
