The problem comes when oil turns to sludge, which is kind of a thick jelly. Sludge clogs up little passages so that the oil can't protect parts of the engine. So the two best ways to prevent sludge build-up in Slidell is to always change oil on schedule; and to use synthetic oil.

Synthetic oil's much more resistant to becoming sludge than conventional oil. My service advisor at Advantage Tire Wheel & accessories says it has the added benefit of lasting longer than conventional oil so the recommended oil change interval can be longer.

The thing I think is cool is that synthetic oil is slipperier than conventional oil. Regular oil molecules are long chains where synthetic oil molecules are rounder. It's like, which is slipperier, a pile of pencils or a pile of marbles? This means that synthetic oil does a better job of lubricating my engine so it doesn't get as hot, or wear as fast.

Using synthetic oil can help Slidell residents improve engine performance and help their engine last longer. I'm really glad my service advisor filled me in on synthetic oil. Maybe you should consider synthetic for your next oil change at Advantage Tire Wheel & accessories.
