Sometimes trusting mileage indicators isn’t enough to know if you need to get a synthetic oil change. Your car may be showing other symptoms that indicate its oil needs to be replaced. Find out if your vehicle is telling you to get new oil through this post.  There’s not much to a synthetic oil change, all you need to do is make a simple service appointment, or do it on your own if that’s what you prefer. A synthetic oil change can do so much for your car, from extending your engine’s life to providing superior performance. Still, many of us delay, ignore or don’t know when it’s time to get our oil changed. If you’re one of those people who rely on mileage indicators to know when your oil needs to be replaced, your car can be suffering from lack of lubrication already. North American Wholesale wishes your engine a longer life, which is why they bring you some of the signs your automobile gives you when it needs a synthetic oil change.

Check the Color and Consistency

You will need to check your oil to see if its color has changed. Clean oil is supposed to be an amber to light brown color; it gets darker over time. It doesn’t mean that as soon as it turns dark, it stops functioning. You should try to check the oil’s condition every month. Check its color and consistency. If the oil feels coarse and gritty, it means it has many contaminants already. To check your oil, you just need to remove the oil dipstick from your engine, if you can’t see the stick through the oil because it has become dark and thick, it’s time to get that synthetic oil change to remove that dirty oil. Visit AMSOIL's online store, to learn about their many synthetic oil options and choose the one you need. Usually, trying something like their Signature Series 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil should do, and don't forget to get your new oil filter.

Read up on the many reasons why synthetic oil is a good idea.

Your Engine is Making Louder Noises

Oil helps keep the engine lubricated, so it doesn’t produce loud noises, just normal ambient noise. The oil provides a thin film barrier between engine parts, so you don’t have to hear metal-on-metal contact when you’re driving. If the oil is old and broken down, your engine will produce excessive noises, or it will rev up louder than usual when your turn it on. Your oil has most likely lost its lubricating properties, and the engine parts are now starting to rub against each other. If you continue to ignore these loud noises, they will soon turn into knocking, rumbling, or even roaring. You don’t want to be the person with the noisy car, just get your oil change pronto.

The Light on Your Dashboard Lights Up

You should keep an eye on your dashboard. If the oil change light is on, it means the oil is running low, and you need to check it. It will automatically light up according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. You need to reset it once you get your synthetic oil change. If the oil pressure sign lights up (it looks like an oil dripping can), you seriously need to get your act together and change your oil because your engine is at risk of severe damage.

Engine Exhaust Smoke

It’s okay to see a translucent vapor coming out of your tailpipe during the winter, but if what you see is a thicker smoke it’s a sign that your oil is ancient or there’s an engine leak. Beware of smoke and burning oil smells, it might also mean your engine is overheating, and oil is burning in the exhaust area. Better get your oil changed.

It’s Been a While Since Your Last Oil Change

If you can’t remember the last time you got an oil change, you’re probably due. It’s critical to stick to the correct oil recommendations and sticking to an oil change schedule. Get your synthetic oil change and write the date down so you can start anew with your oil change schedule.
