What Does Motor Oil Do?

Quite simply, Motor Oil is the lubricant that keeps your Napleton Oak Lawn Honda's engine running smoothly without bindings, lock ups, and other maladies that can drastically shorten the life of your investment.

Three different types of Oak Lawn motor oil

Several types of Motor Oil Exist. Conventional, Semi-Synthetic and Synthetic are the most widely known and used varieties, and your Oak Lawn Honda service advisor can help you decide what the best choice is for your driving style.

Conventional Motor Oil Change

  • Traditional or Conventional Motor Oil (sometimes referred to as mineral oil) is usually what lubricates your car as it arrived from the factory. It is refined to remove impurities and can sometimes include additives that increase longevity, and viscosity. It is the least expensive form of lubrication but has a downside in that it needs to be changed more frequently than a synthetic type of oil.

Semi-Synthetic Motor Oil change

  • Semi-Synthetic Motor Oil is, as its name implies, is a blend between synthetic and mineral oils. It needs changing less than regular motor oil and can go for a longer period of time between oil changes. Less expensive than full synthetic, it is a compromise between price and longevity.

Synthetic Motor Oil Change

  • Full Synthetic Motor Oil is the highest (price) and grade of motor oil that you can buy. But do/n't let its high price deter you without first thinking about your typical needs and usage. For instance, if you do a lot of heavy hauling or highway driving for long distances, Synthetic may be the logical (and money saving) choice for you. Synthetic motor oil is comprised of artificially-made lubricants, additives, and supplements that help to keep it cleaner longer. The synthetic makeup allows it to operate at higher temperatures without breaking down. Sure, the up-front price is higher, but you may be able to go the equivalent distance of up to three traditional oil changes for the same price of one synthetic oil service.
