Oil Change in Espanola, NM

Check your owner's manual for recommended oil change intervals. Every car is different.

Does the weather affect oil?

Yes. Motor oil thins when it's hot. Since it gets hot in Santa Fe, NM during the spring and summer (and all year round!), you'll want an oil with a higher viscosity. Your vehicle’s engine processes oil differently during warmer temperatures than it does during colder ones.

What is viscosity?

Viscosity refers to how a fluid flows. The lower the viscosity, the quicker the fluid. For example, water has a low viscosity while syrup has a high one.

Synthetic Oil vs. Conventional Oil

Don't know what oil is best for your vehicle? Check out the differences between synthetic and conventional:

  • Synthetic Oil: Synthetic oil is designed to handle extreme temperatures and lasts longer than conventional oil. It's a great choice for reducing engine wear, and improving gas mileage on hard working engines.
  • Conventional Oil: Also known as regular oil, conventional oil is derived from petroleum. It’s less expensive than synthetic oil and a good fit if you don't drive far very often.

If you need an oil change in Los Alamos, NM, call us now at (505) 995-9590 to schedule an appointment. Don’t wait---your engine is counting on you.
