Synthetic Oil For Your Car

You depend on your vehicle to get you from Point A to Point B. However, there are certain things that you need to do to make sure your vehicle is in top shape at all times. One of those things is changing the oil on a regular basis. Oftentimes, people shy away from using synthetic oil because they believe it is bad for their vehicle. To help you make an informed decision on which oil is best for your ride, explore a couple of the following car misconceptions.

Synthetic Oil is Going to Cause a Leak

While synthetic oils did cause issues with the seals back in the 70s, things have changed since then. With all of the advancements in technology, that isn’t the case today. The synthetic oils of today don’t cause your engine seals to shrink and they aren’t going to cause leaks. Vehicles with more than 75,000 miles should consider using the high-mileage version of this oil.

You Will be Stuck Using Synthetic Forever

Continuously using a synthetic oil is far better for your vehicles’ engine. It is packed with cleansing properties that traditional oil doesn’t have. It can also withstand the most extreme of temperatures. However, if you do decide to switch between synthetic and traditional oil, it isn’t going to do anything to your engine. The main thing you need to make sure is that the oil viscosity adheres to the requirements listed in your vehicle manual.
