Myths About Synthetic Motor Oil

Synthetic motor oil has been used since the 1970s and continues to be used in many vehicles today. Despite how many years it’s been around, there are still many myths and misconceptions regarding synthetic motor oil? Can it damage your engine? Does it cause leaks? Should it always be used? Stop at Corley's Albuquerque Volvo and let our trained staff answer all your motor oil questions.

One of the biggest myths about synthetic motor oil is that if you use it once you need to continue using it. It will do your vehicle no damage whatsoever to switch between conventional and synthetic motor oil. Another myth is that synthetic motor oil can cause leaks in the engine. While this may have appeared to be the issue when synthetic motor oil first came out, this is no longer the case, especially when used on new vehicles.
