How Your Car Can Benefit from a Synthetic Oil Change

There are so many types of engine oil on the market that it can be hard to know which one to choose. They all offer different properties and additives that most of us aren't familiar with. One thing, however, is for sure, synthetic oils are always your best option.  To find out why, keep reading.

What Makes Synthetic Oil Different?

You may be wondering what makes synthetic oils different from conventional oils and even synthetic blends. There are quite a few differences between all of these that can have differing effects on your engine. To start, all of these oils come from the same place, the ground. That's basically where their similarities end. Synthetic oils go through more refining processes where they are distilled and  purified further. This results in an oil that is made up of more uniform particles that give it superior properties. This can result in better performance and increased engine protection. The additive packages included in synthetic oils also help make them superior to conventional oils because of the extra help they provide.

Keep Your Engine Cleaner

One of the things synthetic oil is known to do better than conventional oil is keep your engine clean. It's not uncommon for engines to develop buildup and deposits over time. As your conventional oil gets older, it can become thicker and even turn into sludge. This can add to the deposits already in your engine. Luckily, synthetic oil is better able to resist sludge formation than conventional oils. This means your engine will be cleaner, making it more efficient and prolonging its life.

Protect Your Engine from Wear

Your engine is made up of many moving parts that are in constant motion. Without any oil these parts would constantly be in contact with each other, causing high levels of friction, damage, and higher operating temperatures. Any oil will provide a thin barrier that reduces contact between these parts and that reduces friction under the hood. However, conventional oil tends to break down faster, leaving these parts exposed to premature damage and wear. With a synthetic oil, you can be sure your engine will be better protected for longer. This can result in a longer lifespan for your engine. To find the perfect oil for your vehicle, contact the pros at AMSOIL Dealer- Carol Bell.

Cold Temperature Protection

Whether temperatures are quite cold outside or your car has simply been sitting without use overnight or longer, your oil may have trouble performing its functions right away. If your oil has been sitting in your car without use for a bit, it will have settled and maybe even become thicker. Once you turn on your engine it may have a hard time moving quickly enough to protect exposed engine parts. When temperatures are cold, something similar can happen. Your oil can become thicker and more sluggish in freezing temperatures. When you turn your engine on, the thicker oil won't move as quickly and its thicker consistency will make it harder for it to lubricate all of  the parts that need it. Fortunately, synthetic oil hold onto its viscosity better than conventional oil, meaning it won't thicken up with the cold. With a synthetic oil, you can be sure your engine will be protected even on cold starts on the coldest day of the year.

Better Performance in High Heat

Similarly, synthetic oil is also known to perform better in high heat situations. Temperatures under the hood are already quite high, but when combined with extreme outdoor temperatures, you oil may be fighting to hold onto its properties. Conventional oil can break down and evaporate quite quickly in these conditions, leaving your engine without the protection it needs. Higher than normal temperatures can lead to oxidation, sludge formation, and deposits. Synthetic oil is better able to resist viscosity changes and evaporation even in extreme temperatures. This means it will keep your engine cooler, cleaner, and bette protected when compared to a conventional oil.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Not only is synthetic oil better for your engine, it's also more beneficial for the environment. Because it reduces strain on your engine, it can positively affect your fuel efficiency. Not only does this save you money, it can also help reduce emissions. Since synthetic oil tends to last longer than conventional oil, its oil change intervals are much longer. This results in less oil waste as well as less plastic wasted on packaging. Although it may cost a bit more than conventional oil, you can be sure it'll save you money in the long run.
