Synthetic oil was designed via chemical synthesis and is man-made. This type of oil is produced using a synthetic base oil and a carrier oil that distributes the additives evenly. It benefits from a smaller molecular design and offers improved viscosity and resists thermal breakdown better than conventional. It needs to be changed every 7,500 to 10,000 miles depending upon driving conditions.
As a more advanced technology, synthetic motor oil comes with several advantages. It is common for vehicles to change from conventional to synthetic as the engine accumulates higher miles. If you have been considering this change, here are the proven advantages of synthetic oil:
Despite synthetic oil being the most advanced motor oil technology, it will still break down and lose integrity as its lubricative properties change, forming into a sludgy consistency. Synthetic oil that has broken down will not lubricate the engine’s moving parts properly, causing them to move with increased friction and heat, producing excessive and rapid wear and tear. Changing synthetic oil will remove the sludgy oil not lubricating properly and will introduce fresh oil that does.
When motor oil is not changed at the recommended miles or in response to the oil monitoring system’s prompt, your engine is now running on broken-down oil that is not lubricating properly. This will increase the friction and heat within the engine that allows for the internal components to wear out prematurely. With the greatest consequence of extended oil changes being engine overheating.
