What is Semi-Synthetic Oil

Semi-synthetic oil is a mix of conventional and full synthetic oil. Conventional oil is the standard oil used in cars for decades, and synthetic oil is a type of oil with chemical additives to enhance the life and protection of your engine. Semi-synthetic oil is a specific fractional mix of the two, which allows you to obtain some of the benefits of both oils in one oil. Depending on your car, you might have a specific mixture recommended for your particular car's situation.

How Oil Changes Work

A semi-synthetic oil change is like most any other oil change, except the type of oil used. It starts by raising the car, exposing the oil drain plug, opening it to let out the old oil, and draining the entire oil pan. Then, the oil filter is removed, and a new one is placed in anticipation of the new oil. After that, the drain plug is closed and covered, and the car is lowered. Then our certified technicians pour in the new semi-synthetic oil right through the head and block to your oil pan.

The Myth of Using Different Oils

There used to be a misconception that as soon as you use one type of oil, you can't use a different type of oil, that your engine somehow attunes itself to that kind of oil. This myth is entirely false, and you can try any other type of oil you want. The only exception to this rule is diesel engines because they must use diesel oil tailored to the high pressures present in the engine.
