The Truth About Motor Oil

Motor oil plays a critical role in keeping your car's engine healthy. It lubricates metal parts so that they can move without scratching each other or creating a lot of friction. You may have heard that you have to change the oil before a long trip. This is not necessarily true unless it has been 5,000 miles or more since your last oil change.

If you have used synthetic motor oil in the past, feel free to switch back to conventional at any time. There is no rule that says you have to use the same type of oil every time you change it. However, synthetic oil may be better for the engine over a longer period of time.
