Engine Oil flows through the engine when it is running to keep the moving parts lubricated and cool. Engine Oil reduces engine friction, and therefore, heat. As the engine combusts fuel to generate the power you need to get down the road. The oil filter traps unwanted contaminants that can accumulate in the engine oil helping to keep it fresh for as long as possible. Full Synthetic Oil marks the pinnacle of modern engine oil innovation because it has additives and detergents that take its performance to the next level. Although Full Synthetic Oil will generally last longer than Conventional Oil, it will still break down over time and will need a change service to restore peak performance. The consequence of broken down engine oil is engine overheating with potential engine damage with expensive repairs.
