What is synthetic motor oil?

Does your engine require synthetic motor oil? Even if it doesn’t, knowing what synthetic oil is will help you decide if you should put it in your car when it’s time to change your oil.

Synthetic motor oil is designed from chemical compounds to have specific properties to keep your engine running smoothly. It is created to have a certain viscosity, resist oxidation, and reduce evaporation. It's also designed to flow smoothly at low temperatures and resist breakdown at high temperatures. This is especially important if you drive your car in extreme temperatures conditions.

When it comes to putting oil in your engine, there are many options, including conventional, synthetic, and synthetic blend motor oils. Our service team at Pitre Kia of Las Cruces can tell you which type of oil to put in your engine to keep it running at its best. Schedule a service appointment with us today.
