Synthetic Oil: What it does to the engine.

Oil change services Vehicle maintenance Mesa az Auto repair shop near meMy customers have been asking for more information on synthetic oil and how it affects their engine.  Basically the inside of your engine gets really hot because of friction from the moving parts and from burning fuel. Oil lubricates the moving parts to keep them from getting too hot. 

The problem comes when oil turns to sludge, which is kind of a thick jelly. Sludge clogs up little passages so that the oil can’t protect parts of the engine. So the two best ways for auto owners to prevent sludge build-up is to always change their oil on schedule; and to use synthetic oil.

 

Synthetic oil’s much more resistant to becoming sludge than conventional oil and it has the added benefit of lasting longer than conventional oil so the recommended change interval can be longer.  Synthetic oil is slipperier than conventional oil. Regular oil molecules are long chains where synthetic oil molecules are rounder. It’s like, which is slipperier, a pile of pencils or a pile of marbles? This means that synthetic oil does a better job of lubricating my engine so it doesn’t get as hot, or wear as fast.

Using synthetic oil can help our automotive customers increase engine performance and help their engine last longer.   Consider using synthetic oil next time you schedule an appointment for auto repairs or maintenance.  If you have more questions about the right choices for service and maintenance on your car, truck, SUV, or mini-van, talk with our team of automotive repair experts.
