Oil is a mixture of base oils and additive components which provide a variety of tasks such as: separating and lubricating moving parts, reducing engine wear and providing protection over a wide range of temperatures. The right motor oil will help keep the engine life lasting longer and help protect the emissions system by minimizing impact on devices such as the catalytic converters.
What can go wrong?
By skipping your scheduled oil change appointment, the dirt and contamination in the oil remains which continues to build up, causing the vehicle's performance and efficiency to suffer. Deposits also trap heat inside the engine which causes sludge to form, forcing the engine to work harder while wearing out faster.
What can you do?
Choosing synthetic oil will help prolong the engine's life while providing a much better protection all around. For Honda vehicle's, 0W-20 Synthetic Oil is recommended to avoid sludge build ups, dirt and debris. Always follow the recommended oil change schedule to refill and refresh the oil in the engine to ensure a longer-lasting life.
