Not only do you need to have your oil changed, but you also need to have the right oil in your car. There are two basic types of oil for your engine; one type is synthetic oil and the other is conventional oil.

Synthetic oil is a lubricant that made of artificially produced compounds. Chemists, scientists, and engineers create the controlled ingredients of this type of oil made from petroleum compounds. Known as the most expensive type of oil, it is the best option for conditions such as extreme weather conditions, stop and go traffic, and short trips. Even though this is the most recommended kind of oil, not every car may require it.
