Motor Oil F.A.Q

Be informed. Learn a little more about car oil now, and keep your engine running strong with an oil change at our shop.

When should I change my car's oil?

Check your owner's manual for recommended oil change intervals. Engines differ in oil maintenance needs, and your vehicle's manufacturer is the best source for finding out what your automobile needs and when.

Does the weather affect oil?

Yes. Motor oil thickens when it's cold. Since it can get cold in Fort Dodge during the fall and winter, you'll want an oil with lower viscosity than you would need in the spring or summer.

What is viscosity?

Viscosity refers to how a fluid flows. The lower the viscosity level, the quicker the fluid. For example, water has a low viscosity level while syrup has a high one.

Synthetic Oil vs. Conventional Oil

Don't know what oil is best for your vehicle? Check out the differences between synthetic and conventional:

  • Synthetic Oil: Artificially created, synthetic oil excels in handling extreme temperatures and has fantastic longevity compared to conventional oil. It's a great choice for reducing engine wear, and improving gas mileage on hard working engines.
  • Conventional Oil: Also known as regular oil, conventional oil is derived from petroleum. Different viscosity levels exist for drivers to choose from depending on the climate. It’s less expensive than synthetic oil and a good fit for customers who don't drive far often.
