Synthetic Oil

Mechanic checking the oilConsidering Synthetic Oil? It May Be Right For Your Vehicle.

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 car owners to prevent sludge build-up is to always change their oil on schedule, and to use synthetic oil.

Synthetic oil is much more resistant to becoming sludge than conventional oil. It has the added benefit of lasting longer than conventional oil so the recommended change interval can be longer.

The cool thing about synthetic oil is that it 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 drivers improve engine performance and help their engine last longer. You should consider synthetic for your next oil change at Berning’s Auto Repair.
