Last night we were in class learning about engine oils. Today’s engines are not created equal and each manufacturer has their thoughts on how technology will advance. And with that being said, neither are the engine oils they’re recommending. Just because it says 5w30 on the bottle does not mean it is the correct oil for your engine. Some engines use a thick 5w30 oil and some need a thin 5w30 oil. In fact there are some 5w20 engine oils that are thicker then 5w30! And pouring the wrong oil for the application into your engine can cause long-term damage. Beware of the fine print. For instance, some oils say they are approved for Honda fill but that only means for topping off. That oil has not been approved to be used in a complete oil change. As with everything in our society, regardless of what’s on the front of the label, it may be modified by the small print on the back. Do you buy oil for your vehicles?
