Synthetic Oil Change Interval
ON AVERAGE, VEHICLES NEED AN OIL CHANGE EVERY 5,000 TO 7,500 MILES. HOWEVER, IF YOUR VEHICLE USES SYNTHETIC OIL, YOU COULD GO AS LONG AS 10,000 OR EVEN 15,000 MILES IN BETWEEN OIL CHANGES. BUT KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS IS AN ESTIMATION; YOU’LL ALWAYS WANT TO CHECK YOUR OWNER’S MANUAL FOR THE EXACT SYNTHETIC OIL CHANGE INTERVAL.
IT’S IMPORTANT TO KNOW HOW OFTEN YOU NEED A SYNTHETIC OIL CHANGE, SO THAT YOUR CAR WILL CONTINUE TO RUN WELL FOR MANY YEARS AND MILES. HOWEVER, MANY DRIVERS THROUGHOUT BEDFORD, MANCHESTER, AND MERRIMACK MAY NOT KNOW WHAT SYNTHETIC OIL IS, OR WHAT ITS BENEFITS ARE. WE’LL HELP EXPLAIN IT IN THIS GUIDE TO SYNTHETIC OIL. READ THROUGH THE INFORMATION BELOW, AND CONTACT US AT IRA LEXUS OF MANCHESTER IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.
DEFINING SYNTHETIC OIL
Synthetic oil starts off as crude oil that comes from the ground. However, it goes through an extensive refining process that removes lots of impurities. Plus, the individual molecules in the oil are consistent in mass and shape. As a result, they’ll create less friction as they collide, which means less heat overall.
Furthermore, various additives get mixed in to get oil that’ll be used for particular environmental conditions. Because of this, synthetic can flow better in extremely hot or extremely cold climates.
BENEFITS OF SYNTHETIC OIL
There are many other advantages to using synthetic oil for your automobile. For example, since synthetic is slicker than conventional oil, it allows for a smoother and cooler engine operation. Not only will you get more horsepower and better gas mileage, but the engine will be less likely to break down.
Keep in mind that synthetic oil changes can cost about two to four times more than conventional oil changes. Unless your owner’s manual calls for synthetic, you don’t really need it.
But, that’s not to say it can’t be extremely helpful, especially if you take lots of short trips in your car. Conventional oil may never get warm enough to burn off moisture and impurities. This means that it may not be protecting your engine well. Synthetic oil, on the other hand, was designed to resist breakdown. As a result, it’ll start working as soon as you turn the vehicle on, no matter how short the previous trip was.
