Car Oil Types

What are the Types of Motor Oil Available Through Serramonte Ford?

At Serramonte Ford, our technicians often talk to customers about the difference between motor oil types. The product that you choose for your vehicle depends on a few different things. We want to know how much mileage you have accrued. We also want to know your driving habits, the age of your vehicle, where you drive the most, and your budget for routine maintenance. Only then can we make an accurate recommendation regarding car oil types.

Full Synthetic Motor Oil

Full synthetic motor oil can be used for optimal vehicle performance and top-of-the-line lubrication. Higher viscosity levels come with fully synthetic, and you'll find there is a much higher resistance to oxidation and sludge. We advise you to look out for improved vehicle efficiency after performing an oil change with full synthetic.

Synthetic Blend Oil

Synthetic oil is designed to provide your vehicle with the benefits of synthetic oil and conventional oil. Additives are included to provide a well-rounded motor oil that eliminates the risk of oxidation and damage.

Conventional Motor Oil

Conventional oil is the most affordable option that we have available at Serramonte Ford. It's adequate for moderately used vehicles with low mileage. If outdoor temperatures aren't extremely hot or cold, conventional oil will suffice throughout the year. You still get a reasonable amount of protection to your engine, but it's not the highest quality product around.

High Mileage Motor Oil

Make the switch to a high mileage motor oil when you have hit the mark of 75,000 miles on your odometer. Older vehicles are prone to using more oil than a brand new model, and a high mileage oil can help by using seal conditions to prevent leaks. You can also decrease the emissions that you're putting out with high mileage oil.

Let us here at Serramonte Ford know if you have questions about the type of motor oil you should use for your automobile. We would be happy to assist you with this process.
