Conventional Oil Vs. Synthetic Oil
Perhaps it’s time to re-evaluate both the motor oil used in your vehicle and how often you replace it. The old rule of thumb was that motor oil should be changed out roughly every 3000 miles or every three months, depending on whichever came first. Additionally, it was generally advised to purchase conventional motor oil for standard, daily driving use and only pay the premium for synthetic oils if driving under harsh conditions. While the argument between synthetic and conventional oils has raged for decades, the change interval has happily gone about uncontested.
Lately, even generally conservative mechanics are starting to recommend increasing those intervals upwards of 5000 miles even on conventional oils. Various manufacturers such as Ford, GM, Volkswagen and BMW have published motor oil change intervals from 7500 miles through 15,000 miles when using synthetics. So what’s changed? Aside from the engineering improvements and high tolerance manufacturing within the engines themselves, the technologies behind fuel reformulation (for lubricants and cleaning agents) along with motor oil technology have continued to improve as well. While conventional oils are better than they were when the guidelines were developed, synthetics beat conventional oil in virtually every category of performance. With the general dangers of engine sludge largely in the past, perhaps its time to re-evaluate both oil change intervals and adaptation of synthetic motor oil in your own vehicle.
Why it’s Good to Change Your Oil Regularly
You should always follow manufacturer-recommended oil changes in order to avoid maintenance problems and to make sure your engine runs smoothly against potential problems. A Well-maintained car engine can prevent issues with bearing, rings, cams, or valves for less than 100,000 miles.
- While some cars vary, most auto manufacturers recommend oil changes at least once a year, or every 6,000 miles for everyday use cars and trucks.
- For diesel type engines, the intervals are shorter and it is recommended for an oil change for every 3,000 miles or every six months.
Motor oil lubricates the engine’s parts in order to keep harmful materials from collecting and dirtying up your engine. In addition to that, it also prevents your engine from overheating and keeps everything running smoothly. Whether your car needs conventional oil, synthetic blend, or high mileage oil, you’ll only find the best motor oil brands at Top Line Performance.
