If we were to compare the human body to a vehicle, the engine would be like the brain. Yes, there are other components without which it wouldn't work, but this is main part it needs to work effectively. That's why, if you want to do a good job at maintaining your vehicle, you need to pay special attention to the engine and to its synthetic oil changes. After all, you wouldn't be able to drive your vehicle around if you didn't have an engine in top shape. For that reason, if you aren't the best at keeping up with your vehicle's synthetic oil changes, you should make an effort to be a more responsible vehicle owner. If you have no clue on how to make that happen, however, worry not. The following post will share some tips on how you can stay on top of your vehicle's maintenance properly.

How to Keep Up With Your Vehicle's Synthetic Motor Oil Changes

Be Informed About the Importance of Synthetic Oil Changes

The first tip to being more responsible with your synthetic oil changes is to learn why they should take place. For starters, know that whenever your vehicle is running, the moving parts of the engine are brushing up against each other, which causes friction and starts a wear and tear process. The synthetic oil is in charge of coating those parts, lessening the friction, lubricating and smoothing out its processes, and protecting the parts from their wear and tear process. Still, after a while, the synthetic oil becomes ineffective, meaning that the engine ends up exposed to the harsh conditions it has to endure. If you don't keep up with the synthetic oil changes, the engine's components will get damaged, it will overheat, it will waste more fuel to keep going, etc. In the end, the engine will be rendered useless and your wallet and comfort will suffer. Be diligent with the synthetic oil changes to avoid this dire scenario.

Save time and money on your vehicle's maintenance by maintaining the engine properly. Call Les Berkenpas at (616) 723-1835, or visit AMSOIL's online shop to purchase the top performing synthetic oil in Byron Center.

Know When It's Time to Change the Oil

Now that you know why it's crucial that you provide regular synthetic oil changes, it's time that are made aware of the when exactly you should be performing them. Look out for these signs:
  • you've gone over a certain number of miles with the same oil (your owner's manual or mechanic will be able to give you more. accurate information on this).
  • it's been over a year since the last time you went through a synthetic oil change.
  • the dipstick test reveals that the oil's levels aren't as they should be.
  • the color and texture of the synthetic oil have changed from a smooth light brown, to a gritty dark brown.
  • finally, the vehicle is telling you it needs new oil through the 'Check Engine' sign or the dashboard, or by having the engine act weird, jumpy, and noisy.

Remember to Get the Replacements Done

Last but not least, if you notice that your negligence of the synthetic oil changes is due to poor memory, then find ways to remedy that. Here are a few examples:
  • create an alarm on your phone and label it 'synthetic oil change'. Have it set off every six months or so.
  • write down the synthetic oil changes on a notebook. Write down the date and how many synthetic oil bottles you used to keep a record.
  • if you have someone to share the vehicle, share the responsibility of remembering the replacements, too.
  • lastly, sign up for a reminder service. Nowadays, you can turn to your dealership or autoshop and ask them to notify you when a oil change is due.
