After all, your motor oil is what lubricates the moving parts in the engine, helping to power every drive you take.
Typically, a conventional oil change is adequate for keeping your car running at its best. Getting a conventional oil change comes at a much more affordable cost, and if your car is an older model, conventional oil may be all it needs to keep on going. Plus, brand-new cars often need a break-in period of around 5,000 miles once they leave the factory, so you may want to consider waiting to get a synthetic oil change. And if you lease your car, only to turn it in at the end of the lease, it may be a smarter decision to get the conventional oil change based upon the factory-recommended maintenance schedule.
Generally speaking, a synthetic oil change is better for increasing the lifespan of your powertrain. This is because synthetic oil is refined, distilled, purified and broken down into its basic molecules, therefore giving your engine exactly what it needs to run smoothly. This process removes impurities from the oil and will work to keep your engine cleaner. With synthetic oil, sludge is less likely to build up and it will keep your engine protected from wear over time. Synthetic oil will also help protect your engine better at high temperatures as the oil is less likely to break down or evaporate, ensuring your engine is always properly lubricated. And while a synthetic oil change does come at a higher cost than a conventional oil change, it's well worth the investment for cars with modern engines that you plan on owning for a long period of time.
