Why Perform Oil Changes Regularly?
The combustion engine consists of numerous parts that are constantly in motion. This action generates high amounts of heat which could cause the components to malfunction. As oil circulates within cavities in the engine, it draws out heat and lubricates moving parts. The heating and cooling of engine oil over time causes it to degrade and lose its unique thermal and lubricative abilities. This leaves the engine susceptible to damage through heat and friction. The aim of changing oil is to remove engine oil before it is degraded.
Synthetic Versus Mineral Oil
There are two main types of engine oils available today. The first, conventional mineral oil, is the most widely used kind. The second and lesser known variety is synthetic oil. Both are manufactured from crude oil and only differ with regards to their refinement process. Synthetic oil is produced from more advanced refining techniques, giving it a higher purity and quality over conventional oils. These properties allow engines to run cleaner, more efficiently and with better protection. Synthetic oils are quickly gaining popularity as the preferable engine oil for today’s modern engines.
