We all want our engines to run well, but you need to know a few things about motor oil to ensure that your engine is always protected. Unfortunately, there are some myths floating around that could lead you astray. These are a couple of myths that we at Team Mazda in Caldwell, ID would like to dispel for you.

First of all, you can switch between conventional and synthetic oil. This myth probably comes from the fact that a lot of people like to switch to synthetic oil as their car gets older and don't want to switch back to conventional. Ultimately, you should follow the manufacturer's recommendations.

Some people also think that synthetic oil is more slippery and will cause their engine to leak. This myth has been around since the 1970s and just hasn't gone away. Actually, synthetic oil will protect your engine better in extreme temperatures and won't cause your engine to leak.
