Conventional, Semi-Synthetic & Full Synthetic Oil Change in Woodstock, GA

There seems to be a bit of confusion with the idea of using conventional or synthetic oil, or a blend, in older or newer vehicles. Certain marketing aspects for each have resulted in urban myths about how one or the other is best used.

The fact is, one type of oil is better for your specific make and model because it is designed that way. Consider what the oil does; it lubricates and cools the friction of pistons firing sparks and oxygen to create the energy the engine produces. The tolerances engineered into the design determine whether to use a lighter or heavier weight oil. Modern materials used inside the engine block require less cleaning during oil changes. In turn, synthetic oils are designed to withstand the heat and pressure better than traditional fuels.

      Kia recommends conventional oil changes every 3,000 miles or 3 months

      Kia recommends semi-synthetic oil changes every 6,000 miles or 6 months

      Full Synthetic
      Kia recommends full synthetic oil changes every 7,500 miles or 12 months

Note: As always, Carriage Kia of Woodstock recommends checking your model’s owner’s manual for guaranteed oil change recommendations.


Why Oil Must Be Changed

Oil has to be changed because manufacturing tolerances weren’t what they are in today’s world. Therefore, the valves and pistons befouled the oil by burning it with excessive heat and allowing grime to enter the system. Conventional oil was designed with such considerations. Modern CNC manufacturing standards have eliminated some of these problems, and allow for appropriately designed oils to last much longer.

What Happens If You Don’t Change Your Oil

If the oil isn’t changed, several things can happen depending on the specifics of the car. Conventional oil breaks down, and the engine is no longer going to receive the benefits the oil provides, and break down. Modern synthetics might not break down and fail the way conventional oils do, but failing to change it can still lead to significant engine damages.
