Should I use Synthetic Oil?

Galen’s license as a Certified Lubricant Specialist gives us an expertise other shops don’t have. His extensive training in synthetic oils and lubricants means he can give you an honest, educated opinion.

Synthetic oil is more effective at resisting oil break-down (longer oil change intervals), withstanding higher temps (engine lasts longer), and better flow in cold temps.
Yes, synthetic oils cost more than conventional. This said, synthetic oil change intervals can go as far as 6,000 to 9,000 miles, depending on your situation. When comparing the cost of 2 or 3 conventional oil changes to 1 synthetic, there is actually a cost SAVINGS – and we can figure that for you! Oil analysis tests are also available to monitor how your oil is holding up on longer intervals.

What happens if I go too long between oil changes?

Honestly, it’s just plain BAD for your vehicle. As the oil breaks down, so do the components it’s supposed to protect…mainly, the engine. Your auto is one of the biggest investments you make and ignoring its maintenance can be costly. Ignoring regular oil changes will likely shorten the use of your vehicle by years.
