Oil might be the single most important fluid in your car, and changing it every 3,000 to 5,000 miles is absolutely essential to avoid even bigger problems in the long run. Oil helps to keep your engine cool and keep all essential parts moving properly, but it also can get dirt and sludge in it over time. Old oil can increase friction in the engine and can do long term damage to vital parts. By changing it, you even help increase fuel efficiency because everything under the hood will be working properly.

There are many oils to choose from, but which one is right for your vehicle? You've seen the labels - 10W-30, 10W-40, 5W-20 - but what do they mean? When dealing with engine oils, you're dealing with viscosity, which is the fluid's thickness and flow resistance. The 'W' on the oil stands for Winter, and the number preceding it relates to thickness in the cold. Therefore, 5W-30 is better in cold weather than 10W-30.

The second number on the oil relates to its viscosity at higher temperatures, meaning 5W-30 would be thicker than 5W-40. To find out which oils are best for your car, you can search online, look in the owner's manual, or find a book in your local auto parts store.


Now that you know about the viscosity grade as discussed above, there are four general varieties: conventional, high mileage, synthetic blend, and synthetic. Conventional oil is just that – conventional. This means it's the most basic of the four oils and meets the desired levels in relation heat tolerance, breakdown resistance, and viscosity. This oil is recommended for low-mileage, late model cars that are driven normally. These days, more engines require synthetic oil, so be sure to check your owner's manual first. High mileage is also self-explanatory, in that it is for older vehicles or vehicles with a high mileage. It also helps in sealing oil leaks and adds to an enhanced performance in older engines. Synthetic blend oil is a mixture of synthetic and conventional oil, resulting in added resistance to oxidation and is recommended for vehicles that regularly have a heavy load and/or operate at a high RPM. Synthetic motor oil offers top of the line lubrication and engine protection, often leading to better protection during start-up and better protection against heat build-up.
