An oil change is a vehicle maintenance service where the old worn-out oil in a vehicle's engine is replaced with fresh oil so that the engine can run smoothly and efficiently. During an oil change, the oil filter of a vehicle's engine is also changed, allowing the fresh oil to remain clean. Oil changes are necessary for most vehicles on the road and are recommended by most manufacturers. Several issues can arise when a vehicle's oil isn't changed routinely.
Conventional oil is oil that is refined directly from the crude oil drilled from the earth. Conventional oil provides the basic properties that vehicles need from oil, such as lubrication and cooling. Most vehicles utilize conventional oil in their engines because of the simple benefits that it provides. Conventional oil is the only oil that some engines can run on, as other types of oil can create problems for the engines.
A technician will drain the old oil from your vehicle's engine during a conventional oil change and determine which conventional oil blend your vehicle's engine needs. Once the technician has identified the oil that your vehicle’s manufacturer recommends for its engine, they will change the engine's oil filter and refill the engine with fresh oil.
Synthetic oil is one of the most high-quality oils available, so it is commonly used in high-performance engines. Synthetic oil is created by researchers and offers many of the same great qualities that conventional oil offers. However, synthetic oil typically includes additives that allow it to provide additional benefits to your vehicles’ engine. Some synthetic oils, for example, can protect engines from the harmful effects of corrosion. While synthetic oil has many great qualities, it cannot be used in every vehicle’s engine.
Semi-synthetic oil is an oil blend that offers a mix of the great qualities that conventional oil and synthetic oil offer. During a semi-synthetic oil change, a technician will determine which oil blend is appropriate for your vehicle and its engine.
