Few maintenance services are as crucial for your vehicle as an oil change. Having regular oil changes performed ensures that your engine always has clean oil to lubricate its internal parts. We invite drivers in Westford, MA, to learn more about engine oil maintenance and schedule an appointment at our state-of-the-art service center near Lowell, Chelmsford, Carlisle, and Littleton, MA.
It is important to understand the difference between the three main oil types to make the best decision for your vehicle. At Boch Honda West, we perform conventional, semi-synthetic, and synthetic oil change services. If you wonder what the difference is, we invite you to read on:
Conventional oil is derived from crude oil and was the standard in auto maintenance for many decades. The most basic form of engine oil, conventional oil, provides excellent lubrication properties but can struggle to perform at extremely hot or cold temperatures. We recommend that vehicles with conventional oil have an oil change performed every 3,000 miles.
Synthetic oil provides your engine with superior performance and engine protection. In addition to its lubrication ability and resistance to extreme temperatures, synthetic oil includes special additives for increased engine health and cleaning. We recommend vehicles with synthetic oil have an oil change performed every 7,500 miles.
Semi-synthetic oil is a blend between conventional oil and full-synthetic oil. By creating a hybrid of the two, semi-synthetic oil offers better performance at extreme temperatures than conventional oil does while not quite being on the performance level of synthetic oil. We recommend that vehicles with semi-synthetic oil have an oil change performed every 5,000 miles.
We also carry high-mileage engine oil to help drivers get the most from their vehicles with more miles. Whatever type of oil you are looking for, you can find it at Boch Honda West!
Your engine relies on oil to lubricate its individual components to prevent wear and overheating. Over time, your oil will accumulate dirt, rust, and other impurities, affecting oil performance and damaging your engine. As your oil ages, you will notice a decrease in engine output and fuel economy. In order to prevent these issues from creating more extensive problems, it is critical to follow a strict oil maintenance schedule.
