  • What’s the Difference Between Conventional Oil and Synthetic Oil?

    Conventional Oil Vs Synthetic Oil

    Oil is essential for your vehicle’s wellbeing and protects critical engine components from damage to ensure your engine runs properly.

    At Carfix, we are firm believers in using synthetic oil for vehicle oil changes due to synthetic oil’s wide range of benefits.

    When comparing synthetic oil to conventional oil, the American Automobile Association found that synthetic engine oils performed an average of 47 percent better than conventional oils in a variety of industry-standard tests.

    Synthetic Oil Advantages

    • Increased Engine Protection. Your vehicle’s engine components wear down over time due to being in constant friction, and your motor oil is the only thing that provides protection for all these moving parts. Compared to conventional oil, synthetic oil won’t break down and will protect your engine for longer, as well as extend its lifespan.
    • A Cleaner Engine. As motor oil circulates through your vehicle’s engine to lubricate its parts, small deposits start to form. Conventional oil tends to create sludge in your engine from these deposits over time which reduces your engine’s efficiency and longevity. Full synthetic oils, however, contain fewer impurities and are able to resist sludge and deposit formation, ensuring a cleaner engine and continued peak performance for your vehicle.
    • Extreme Temperature Protection. Synthetic oils are more stable than conventional oils at both low and high temperatures. They are designed to flow quickly in winter temperatures and resist extreme heat in hotter climates, ensuring your engine runs smoothly whatever the weather.
    • Enhanced Turbocharger Protection. More and more cars are being built with smaller engines and turbochargers, which means synthetic oil is able to flow quicker to critical parts allowing for superior engine performance, as well as create the needed lubrication for your engine. Conventional oil, on the other hand, breaks down much faster under turbocharged conditions which can negatively impact engine performance.
    • While conventional motor oil provides adequate lubrication for your vehicle, synthetic motor oil offers far greater levels of performance, fuel efficiency, and protection for your engine.
 

Car Engines Are Complex Machines With Many Moving Parts.

In order for those parts to move smoothly, they need to be lubricated properly. If you fail to get regular oil changes, you are putting your engine at risk of damage. Over time, oil that sits in the engine too long gets tainted with debris like dirt and dust. This oil can no longer lubricate the engine’s parts to keep it functioning as it should, which causes corrosion in your engine.

Our mechanics at Carfix recommend that you keep your car on a schedule of regular maintenance. How often you should get an oil change depends on many different factors. You should reference your owner’s manual to see what your car’s manufacturer recommends. How much you drive is a good indicator of how often you should get an oil change. It is recommended that most cars have an oil change done between 3,000 and 5,000 miles.

 

The Importance Of Oil Changes:

You have probably heard that you need to get your car’s oil changed regularly. But why is this so important?

  • Your engine’s parts need lubrication to run properly – Without clean, proper oil, your engine cannot run efficiently.
  • Regular oil changes help keep your engine cool – Keeping your engine cool with regular oil changes increases oil longevity.
  • Changing out the oil regularly helps move debris – New oil can help remove engine buildup and other contaminants that can cause corrosion.
  • Save on fuel – Regular oil changes will help your engine be more fuel-efficient.
  • Gives your engine a break – When you get your oil changed regularly, the engine is lubricated as it should be, and all of the moving parts are running smoothly. As a result, your engine does not have to work as much, giving it a longer life span.
