ATLANTA, GA, March 21, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Synthetic vs. conventional motor oil has been a long-disputed question in the automotive industry, which the engine kit pros at APM Engine Parts want to address. You already know the importance of changing your car's oil regularly. Three months or 3,000 miles is the typical manufacturer's stated interval, though in reality you can go much farther than this if using the right material.
Does Your Car Need Synthetic Oil?
The fact of the matter is, a lot of people simply do not understand the differences between conventional and synthetic oil blends, let alone which kind they should be putting in their engine crankcase. When shopping for oil at your local automotive supply store, chances are you have noticed the mass of brands that stack the shelves. Is one product any better than the other? Does that fancy synthetic material (which costs a lot more) really matter?
The GM engine rebuild experts say it does indeed, especially for vehicles that have more than 75,000 miles. While conventional oil serves its primary purpose - to keep the engine parts adequately lubricated - just as well as any name-brand product, that is where the similarities stop. Synthetics can do much more to keep your motor in sound shape.
According to David DeBuc, Vice President of APM Engine Parts, "Most blends contain special additives that work to remove built-up carbon deposits, which can hinder engine performance, in addition to significantly extending oil change intervals. It is not uncommon to get 12 months or 12,000 miles worth of use out of a good synthetic."
