An engine needs synthetic oil replacements in order to continue working powerfully and smoothly. If you aren't the best at keeping up with them, this post by Tarheel Synthetics in Lee County, NC will give you tips on the matter.

The synthetic oil replacements for your engine are probably one of the most important maintenance tasks that you need to perform. When the engine runs, its parts move, rubbing against each other, generating friction and heat. The synthetic oil is meant to lubricate and protect the engine from these harsh conditions, which helps it have smoother processes, have a longer lifespan, and perform as expected. If you're constantly forgetting to change the synthetic oil in your vehicle, however, this post by Tarheel Synthetics in Lee County, NC will share tips on how you can become more responsible with them.

If your engine is due some new oil, call Tarheel Synthetics at (800) 781-8840 ext 1 or visit AMSOIL's online shop to purchase the best synthetic oil in Lee County, NC.

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

Be Informed of the Consequences

Sometimes, the best approach to be a more responsible person (in this case, a more responsible vehicle owner) is to be scared straight. Knowing the consequences of not changing the oil with regularity can help you understand why it's so important that you do. So, let's reiterate: the synthetic oil has the very important job of coating, protecting, and lubricating the moving parts in the engine to help them perform better and remain in top shape for longer. Old oil is not effective at doing this, since time and use have thinned it out, made it dirty, and basically rendered it useless. This means that if you don't do a good job at changing the oil, your engine is exposed, which can bring a slew of problems. For example, its wear and tear process can accelerate significantly, and it can start heating up regularly. Not only that, but having those problems fixed or getting the engine replaced can be extremely costly.

Learn When to Replace It

Once again, it may be that ignorance is to blame in your poor tracking of the vehicle's synthetic oil replacements. In this case, you may know that doing it is important, but you may not know when you should be getting it done. Fortunately, knowing when to change the oil is not a mystery. In fact, there are several signs you can look to to know if the synthetic oil is due a change. For example:
  • the miles you've driven on the same oil (which can vary depending on your vehicle, the use you give it, and more).
  • when you changed it last (if it's been more than a year, that old oil needs to go).
  • the oil's condition (if it has a dark color and a gritty texture, it menas it's dirty and needs to be changed).
  • the engine's behavior (a jumpy, noisy engine may be in need of new oil)
  • the signs on the dashboard (if the 'Change Oil' sign is on, you can bet your vehicle needs a replacement).
In any case, it's still recommended that you go to a professional mechanic, or read your owner's manual, for more detailed information.

Remember to Get the Replacements Done

Last but not least, if what's messing your efforts of being a more responsible vehicle owner is your memory, there are several ways in which you can be reminded that you need to replace your synthetic oil every so often. To that end, you can try one of the following:
  • one very simple idea that can be very effective is to set an alarm on your smartphone to remind you of the changes. You should label it correctly and set it for every six months.
  • even the faintest ink is stronger than the best memory, which is why you should write down the synthetic oil replacements you give your vehicle. In a notebook, keep track of the dates of the replacements, as well as how much synthetic oil you used.
  • you can also ask other people for help with this task. If you have to share the responsibility of the vehicle with someone else, ask them to remind you whenever the date for the replacement is getting close.
  • lastly, use a reminder service. If your auto shop or dealership offers one or has an app that can send you notifications when you're due some new oil, sign up for it at once.
