Performing preventative maintenance on your vehicle, such as having the oil changed, saves you money in the long run. While it may not seem apparently different in the way, your car performs, choosing the correct oil for your vehicle is a must to protect against major damages in the future.
The first thing to consider is to check your owner's manual. If there is a requirement for the oil type, it will be stated clearly. It's important to note that if you don't use the required type, it could void your car's warranty for any engine problem later down the road.
Synthetic oil is a lubricant that is artificially made from chemical compounds. It is very thin, resists temperature extremes, and lasts longer than conventional oil. This type of oil helps to reduce the wear on your car's engine during cold starts and is more durable. Conventional oil, also referred to as mineral-based or standard oil, is less durable and requires more regular changes.
