It's highly doubtful that non-synthetic would damage your engine.
Synthetic decreases wear and modestly increases mpg. Other than that it's not much else.

It might be a coincidence with the sun roof, but all makes and models of cars have window and door lock problems with age. Two things happen as a car ages. In most cases, the drivers door opens and closes more often than the rest of the doors, also your more likely to leave the drivers window open and it rains in on the controls. The majority of the time, it's the wiring at the door hedge that bends back and forth & breaks when you get in and out of your vehicle. Everyone's situation is different depending on use/mileage.
Example: Delivery driver, miles 50k window/door lock problem.
Highway daily driver 150k miles with no problems.

You can sometime check this your self. Turn on your ignition where the windows should work. "engine does not have to start" Sit in the drivers seat, hold down the window up/down button while moving the door in question to open & close. If the window tries to move at any time, the wires are wore in half. This does not always work, but I have had great luck trouble shooting electrical door problems using this method. If you have doors with no wires, clean the contact points. Hatchbacks & minivans use this system. Hope this helps.

You should check the thermostat. There must be a sensor connector on the thermostat housing. If you bypass that connector and the fan runs, then the thermostat is damaged and needs to be replaced. If you follow the radiator hose you will reach the thermostat housing.

Relay is in the fuse box along with the fuse for the fan.. First check the fuse.always check the easist thing first. Inside the fuse box is a list of which fuse powers each item.. refer to the list. If you have a volt meter you can check the fuse.. or just pull it and replace it. There are spare fuses in the box. The small red tool in the fuse box next to then spares, is a tool to remove the fuses. You can disconnect the fan wires at the plug.. the fan runs on standard 12v system power. You can jump 12v to it to see if it will run.. if it does not run than look at the relay and the Temp senser that
turns the fan on.. If you are going to work on your own car i suggest that you purchase the Chilton Manual for the car.. a really good investment.
