We take the same care whether it is a simple oil change or something more complex. Whether you are in Midland, TX, or Odessa, TX, bring your car to us for the best service.
There are three basic types of oil you can use for your car.
Conventional Oil- traditional oil that motorists have used since the beginning.
Semi-synthetic - a compromise between the two and is a good option in some cases.
Full synthetic - man-made substance that still contains oil but is more efficient. It works better and lasts longer, but does cost significantly more.
Oil lubricates your engine, preventing metal from grinding against metal. Keeping oil fresh keeps it lubricated. Full synthetic oil is more efficient in this regard. Oil also cleans your engine by taking out impurities, and again synthetic oil is more efficient than conventional oil. Over time the oil will wear down and become less efficient at lubricating. It can also soak up some of the impurities and eventually contribute to the development of sludge in your engine.
Full synthetic oil production involves more work, so it is significantly more expensive than conventional oil. Semi-synthetic is a cross between the two and the price reflects that. Synthetic lasts longer, but you will end up paying a little more in the long run. All oil creates emissions that are harmful to the environment, but again full synthetic oil is less so. Since it lasts longer there is also less spent oil to dispose of. The important thing is to change the oil regardless of your choice.
Failing to change the oil will make your engine wear out much sooner than it would if you had kept regular changes.
