Choose the right oil
One of the most important things to remember is that you must use an engine oil that meets your particular vehicle manufacturer’s stringent requirements. For the most part this includes all oils that carry the American Petroleum Institute’s certification. Those oils that meet these standards will have a “starburst” log printed on the label that signifies the oil meets these standards.
Natural, Blended or Synthetic Oil?
In recent years we have begun to hear a lot about blended and synthetic oils as an alternative to natural oils. There are a number of reasons why you should consider using synthetic oils, starting with the fact they have been designed to handle temperature extremes better than conventional oils. This means far better protection for your vehicle’s engine, especially during the hottest months of summer in Florida.
Thanks to a superior refining process, synthetic oils have far fewer impurities in them, reducing the risk of damage to moving parts such as the bearings in your engine. While synthetic oils tend to be more expensive, the extra life they can give your car’s engine will more than offset their cost. In fact some manufacturers now fill their vehicle engines with synthetic oil at the factory and recommend you use nothing else.
Three Types of Oils
The most commonly used oil, helps protect engines against deposit build up, viscosity break down and wear.
High Mileage Oil
High-mileage oil has additional components especially for engines over 75,000 miles.
Synthetic oil is the top of the line oil and helps to prolong the life of your engine.
What about My Warranty?
There have been many different rumors concerning whether or not using the wrong type of engine oil in your vehicle can adversely affect your warranty. The simple fact is that if you use an engine oil type other than that recommended by the manufacturer, you may void your warranty, not to mention risk damaging the engine.
One way to do this, is to use an engine oil that is heavier than the manufacturer recommends. For example if your vehicle recommends using 5W-30 and you use 20W-50 or an oil that does not meet SAE or API ratings, you will probably void the warranty if any damage occurs. The same can happen if you try to use a synthetic oil that is not recommended by your particular manufacturer. Choose your engine oil very carefully, this is a great way to ensure your vehicle will provide you with a long life.
