When it comes to lubrication, you already know your engine needs protection. Motor oil is in charge of getting that job done, but it takes more than that to make it work out. 

What You Really Need to Take Care of When It Comes to Engine Lubrication

It isn´t just about changing the oil on time, there are many factors that play a big role in how efficiently your engine is lubricated. Timing is definately one, but among those is also the type and quality of the motor oil you use and making sure that the other components of your lubrication system are doing their job. The following advice can help you keep in mind everything you need to take care of in order to make every oil change effective and efficient.

Timing Is Everything When It Comes to Oil Changes

The first thing you need to consider is the timing. Even if you use the highest quality oil if you don´t change it in time, your engine is bound to face difficulties. You see, the lubricating system of your engine is not completely enclosed to foreign particles or contaminants, so even though lifetime transmission oil may be a thing now, don´t expect your oil to last near that long.

Quality Lubricants Last Longer but Not Forever

Sure, some quality lubricants such as AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil can last a long long time. Around 25,000 miles before needing to be replaced, but even these long lasting lubricants need to be eventually changed. That is because the engine operates under constant demands and even the highest quality oil is bound to be contaminated with precipitation, dirt, and other tiny particles that over time accumulate. Read this article to learn more about how motor oil becomes contaminated.

How Often You Change Your Oil Can Depend Greatly on the Type of Lubricant You Use

Oil changes need to happen around every 3,000 miles if you are using regular quality non-synthetic lubricants. That is because conventional lubricants are more prone to wearing out and becoming contaminated. They lack the sturdy molecular formula that synthetic lubricants have.

Why Synthetic Lubricants Last Longer

Synthetic lubricants have a stronger composition that allows them to fight off contamination for longer and to not thin out or breakdown when faced with harsh temperatures or intense operating condition. That is why the type of lubricant you use makes such a big difference in how often you need to be changing the oil. Not to mention that your driving conditions and operating environment will also play a big role in this.

Synthetic Lubrication Offers the Best Protection

Most synthetic lubricants can be changed around every 5,000 miles without a problem but it is still important that you verify with your owner´s manual and follow your manufacturer´s recommendations. If you need specialized assistance or require help in selecting the ideal synthetic motor oil for your vehicle, you can visit the online AMSOIL catalog or call Mooresville Synthetic Oil directly at (336) 247-0212.

The Oil Filter Is More Important Than You Think

Prolonging your oil changes will only set you up for disaster but not completing them correctly can also cause chaos. One of the most important aspects of an oil change is changing the oil filter. Yes, the oil filter seems to be that little forgotten can that does so much for your engine but hardly ever get recognized. The oil filter is the motor oil´s best friend because it allows it to stay clean and free of sludge every time it passes through it.

Always Remember to Change the Oil Filter During Every Oil Change

Over time all of the gunk and soot it accumulates can become overwhelming and too much for the oil filter to handle. This is where the oil filter stops functioning efficiently and the oil instead of being cleansed when it passes through it can become contaminated by the excess sludge the oil filter has accumulated and can no longer restrain. That is why it is absolutely necessary that you clean and remove the oil filter during every single oil change. Completing an oil change without having the oil filter replaced or cleaned out is pretty much pointless because you are only causing the new oil to get dirty faster. So, never neglect this important part of the oil system.
