When should I get my oil changed?
Isn’t all oil the same?
Most manufacturers suggest changing oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Check your owner’s manual for complete details.
What does motor oil do?
No. Regular motor oil is made from crude oil, which is an excellent lubricant but can break down over time. Synthetic oil is modified regular oil designed to lubricate better and last longer.
What is viscosity?
Oil does several important things, including:
- Corrosion protection
- Contaminant transfer
How easily oil pours at a given temperature is called its viscosity. Viscosity ratings are set by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).
