Ridgeways Vehicle Oil Changes
As you drive your vehicle, engine oil breaks down and wears out. When it does, it becomes less effective at lubricating the engine and absorbing heat. As an automobile owner, your goal is to change the oil in your car or truck before it breaks down and causes catastrophic engine failure. With that in mind, how often should you replace your oil? There are many factors to consider, including the way you drive, how old your engine is, what type of vehicle you operate, and where you live. Several mechanics will advise you to change your oil every 3,000 miles. Automobile manufacturers might suggest a longer period, such as 5,000 miles. If you you’ve upgraded to synthetic oil, you might be able to go 10,000 miles before changing the oil.

- Conventional – Conventional oil is a mixture of mainly pentanes and heavier hydrocarbons recoverable at a well from an underground reservoir and liquid at atmospheric pressure and temperature. Unlike bitumen, conventional oil flows through a well without stimulation and through a pipeline without processing or dilution.
- Synthetic – Pioneered in the ’70s by Mobil and now available from most major oil companies, take the all-season, multiviscosity approach to the outer limits. Unlike traditional mineral oils that are produced by distillation and further refining of existing crude oil stock, synthetic lubricants are made through chemical reactions. These new oils aren’t synthetic or artificial in the sense that they’re manufactured out of whole cloth–they still have the same natural ingredients found in “real” oil. But in a synthetic lubricant, these ingredients are recombined like a Lego set to yield synthesized-hydrocarbon molecular chains with desirable characteristics and uniformity not found in even the highest-quality traditional motor oils. Typically, the best synthetic oils use a combination of up to three different synthetic base fluids–polyalphaolefin (PAO), synthetic esters, and alkylated aromatics.
