Getting an oil change regularly is the single best way to prolong the life of your vehicle. The lubrication, protection, and cooling that oil provides keeps your engine from getting worn out, and semi-synthetic oil is an excellent choice for you to give your car those benefits. When you get your semi-synthetic oil change, you’ll want a service center that knows what they’re doing to help you, which is why we offer semi-synthetic oil changes at Hagerstown Honda.
There are three types of oil that standard combustion engines can use. They are synthetic, semi-synthetic, and conventional oil. Synthetic oil is an oil that’s enhanced by chemical additives to optimize the performance of your oil. Conventional oil is what you might think of when someone mentions “motor oil;” it’s the classic motor oil that’s been used for centuries. Semi-synthetic oil is a fractional mixture of both synthetic and conventional oil that aims to provide the benefits of these types of oil in one single oil change.
Semi-synthetic oil changes are largely the same as other oil changes, except for the kind of oil is used. It starts by exposing the oil drain plug under the car and opening it, draining out the old oil until it’s all gone. Then, our certified technicians switch out your old filter with a brand new one, and the oil drain plug is closed. Everything gets covered back up, and then our technicians pour up to six quarts of semi-synthetic oil into your oil pan.
When you get an oil change, you replace the old oil in your car with new oil, which refreshes the protections, lubrication, and cooling capabilities of the oil in your engine. This allows your engine to continue to function easily and allows you not to have to worry about excessive wear, corrosion, or under-lubrication. Oil can also burn off, which means you have less and less oil in your engine as time goes on. This makes it harder to cover all the parts of your engine with the protection oil gives.
