The engine in your Honda car, SUV, minivan, or pickup truck is a stunning piece of engineering that delivers a perfect combination of power and efficiency. To function as it should, your engine needs oil to lubricate its moving parts. However, engine oil begins to break down and degrade over time. To avoid engine damage, you will need to have your oil changed regularly. When your Honda is due for its next oil change or high-mileage oil change, come to Pacific Honda near Chula Vista and La Mesa, California.
Of the different types of engine oil, conventional is the least expensive. However, it doesn’t last as long as other kinds of oil. In general, you will need to have conventional oil changed about every 3,000 miles.
Synthetic oil costs more than conventional oil at the time of service, but it also lasts much longer than conventional. Depending on your vehicle, you may be able to go up to 10,000 miles between oil changes. In addition to lasting longer, synthetic oil stands up to extreme temperatures better than conventional oil. And, thanks to its detergent additives, synthetic oil can also keep your engine cleaner than conventional oil can.
If you want some of the benefits of synthetic oil at a lower price, you can ask about synthetic blends.
Diesel engines require special oil. Not only does diesel oil generally have a different viscosity than oil meant for gas engines, but it also has additional anti-wear additives to keep the engine in good condition.
