The 10,000 Mile Discount Oil Change

If you’re a 3,000 mile engine oil change purist, news about tire shops now offering a 10,000 mile oil change may seem contrary to everything you’ve heard about how frequently you should change your motor oil. However, a 10,000 mile synthetic oil change has a lot of scientific strength behind it. High quality synthetic motor oil offers some impressive advantages and can also save you money in the long run.

Not an Exact Science
Changing your vehicle’s oil is one of the most important things you can do to protect the engine, maintain its peak performance and avoid costly engine repairs. However, there’s a lot of controversy about exactly when you should do it. Owner’s manual recommendations for oil and filter replacement changes vary from 3,000 to 10,000 miles depending on the vehicle and your personal driving habits. Other service experts recommend changes at 5,000 miles. The truth is, how often you should change engine oil is not an exact science. There are a lot of different factors that influence it. They include how you drive, the condition and age of your engine, whether the climate you drive in is extremely hot or cold, if you frequently drive on dirt roads, and if you do a lot of stop-and-go driving versus highway driving.

It’s About the Oil
No one doubts that clean engine oil is important. It lubricates engine parts more effectively and keeps the motor running smoothly. Engine oil, however, undergoes thermal breakdown due to high operating temperature. When that happens, it becomes less effective as a lubricant. Expensive engine parts may begin to rub together and may experience unnecessary wear. Oil also absorbs water, dust and combustion byproducts, and holds them in suspension. Waiting too long to change the oil may cause those impurities to clog the oil filter, force the engine work harder and severely impact overall fuel economy.

Synthetic Oil Advantages
The 10,000 mile oil change now offered at some tire retail shops leverages the advantages of high quality synthetic motor oil. Synthetic motor oil is more resistant to thermal breakdown, and also has what scientists call better shear capability and better cling. That means it lubricates critical engine parts more effectively and longer than conventional motor oil. In addition, it also has a lower pour point, meaning synthetic oil gets to where it need to be and begins protecting engine parts much more rapidly after a cold start, especially in cold weather. Those advantages add up to superior engine protection, less internal wear, easier cold-temperature starts, improved power and performance, and improved overall fuel economy. And, unlike other motor oils, you also save time and money by only changing synthetic motor oil every 10,000 miles.

Premium Filters and Parts
Whether your take advantage of a 10,000 mile discount synthetic oil change or conventional 3,000 mile oil change, feel confident in knowing most tire shops have Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certified Technicians that use only premium oils, filters and parts to keep your car, truck, SUV or crossover running well and running longer.

So, whether you’re a 3,000 mile oil change purist or you’re already turned on to advantages of a 10,000 mile synthetic oil change, remember that oil is as important to the health of your engine as blood is to the health of your body. So, keep your engine healthy and schedule your next oil change with confidence at the local tire discount store nearest you.
