What are the Advantages of Using Synthetic Motor Oil?

Conventional motor oils have a running life. The running life depends on several factors, such as the ambient temperature, the age of the engine, and the type of driving. Conventional oils are subject to temperature changes; they run smoother in warm temperatures, like water when it is hot, and slower during cold temperatures. Conventional oils also collect water.

Synthetic motor oils are relatively unaffected by temperature changes. The molecular makeup of synthetic oils is steadier and capable of absorbing temperatures without loss of lubricating ability. Synthetic oils block water and maintain a fine film of lubrication even when the parts are idle for long periods of time. Older engines, and other engines with wear, benefit from the use of a lubricant that maintains a lubricating film for long periods of time.

Tell us at Sheehy Volkswagen of Springfield to switch your vehicle to synthetic oil when you are ready for your upcoming oil change appointment.
