Types of Engine Oil

When it comes time for your next Acura MDX oil change near Richmond Hill, you can ask the service technician to use conventional oil, high mileage oil, full synthetic oil, or a blend. What is the difference between the types?

There are four types of oil available for your car’s engine:

  • Conventional motor oil is derived from petroleum and was used for decades to lubricate internal combustion engines. This is a light duty engine oil
  • High mileage engine oil has additives that help drivers get the most life out of engines that have more than 75,000 miles on them. The extra ingredients may help reduce smoke and emissions, minimize leaks, and reduce oil consumption.
  • Full Synthetic motor oil is made from a combination of highly refined petroleum and additives in a neutral carrier oil. Synthetic oil is more expensive than conventional motor oil, but it also increases the life of your engine and can prevent future problems, thereby reducing maintenance costs later on.
  • Synthetic blend engine oil is a mixture of synthetic and conventional oil. It provides a mid-grade alternative to drivers who want to get the best performance while saving money.

What Do the Numbers Mean?

When you are planning for an Acura MDX oil change, you will also need to know the weight of the oil you should use. The number on the bottle of engine oil is called the viscosity number. The first number is the winter number, that is how well the oil performs during cold weather. The second number reflects how well the oil performs during warm weather. Viscosity grades range from 0W-16 through 20W-50. The lower the number, the better the oil performs.

Acura MDX Oil Type

The type of oil recommended for the Acura MDX is 0W-20 or 5W-20 in the Pooler region. 0W-20 is a full synthetic oil and 5W-20 is available as a blend. The type of oil to use in your vehicle depends on the engine, its age, how and where you drive, and the weather conditions in your region. When you schedule your next Acura MDX oil change, the trained service technicians at Southern Motors Acura can discuss their recommendations with you.

Acura MDX Oil Change

Be sure to have the oil in your Acura MDX changed regularly to keep it running well when you drive around Hardeeville. If you are using synthetic oil, a good rule of thumb is to change it every 7,500 – 10,000. Conventional oil should be changed every 3,000 – 5,000 miles.
