After recently seeing an ad for synthetic oil in Denver and realizing I didn’t know much about it. I asked my helpful Express Car Care service adviser for some background. Basically the inside of your engine gets really hot because of friction from the moving parts and from burning fuel. Oil lubricates the moving parts to keep them from getting too hot.
The problem begins when oil turns to sludge, which is kind of a thick jelly. Sludge clogs up little passages so that the oil can’t protect parts of the engine. So the two best ways for Denver car owners to prevent sludge build-up is to always change their oil on schedule, and to use synthetic oil.
Synthetic oil is much more resistant to becoming sludge than conventional oil. My service specialist says it has the added benefit of lasting longer than conventional oil so the recommended change interval can be slightly longer.
The thing I think is cool is that synthetic oil is more slippery than conventional oil. Regular oil molecules are long chains where synthetic oil molecules are rounder. It’s like which is more slippery, a pile of pencils or a pile of marbles? This means that synthetic oil does a better job of lubricating my engine so it doesn’t get as hot, or wear out as fast.
Using synthetic oil can help Denver motorist improve engine performance and help their engine last longer. I’m really glad my service adviser filled me in on synthetic oil. Maybe you should consider synthetic oil for your next oil change. Give us a call at Express Car Care and let us help.
