Using The Correct Oil In Your Car Can Help You Avoid Engine Problems That Cause Vehicle Breakdowns And Calls To Roadside Assistance

Many motorists are often not sure whether their car needs regular or synthetic oil. This depends upon the car’s age, mileage, and the recommendations made by the carmaker.

Cars that are older and have high mileage usually have a lot of engine wear that causes oil to internally leak. Synthetic oil is not recommended for these cars since it is thinner than regular oil and it flows freely. If you use synthetic oil on the wrong car it can cause internal oil combustion.

Many carmakers today use synthetic oil in their car’s engines. This usually is the case for cars with high performance engines that have high temperatures of operation, high compression, and tight engine tolerances. If you do not know whether or not to use synthetic oil in your car and it is still under warranty, it is smart to ask your dealer first.

In the right car, synthetic oil is better to use. Make sure you look at your owner’s manual to see what kind of oil is recommended for your car specifically. Even though synthetic oil is more costly than regular oil is, it is a smart investment since it lasts longer and help your engine to last longer also. Lastly, if you use the correct oil in your car it can prevent engine problems that cause vehicle breakdowns and calls to roadside assistance.
