Synthetic Oil for Clovis Autos

Posted July 26, 2020 9:31 AM

If you are a driver in Clovis and you aren't currently using synthetic motor oil in your vehicle, maybe now's the time to consider it. Need more information? Well, synthetic motor oil is a substitute for petroleum based oil.

Synthetic oil doesn't gel or gum-up like petroleum based oil and it doesn't vaporize as easily. It protects better in severe driving conditions like stop and go driving around Clovis, as well as in very hot or very cold conditions. More and more new vehicles are being delivered with full synthetic motor oil, with the recommendation to use synthetic for the life of the vehicle.

Why is this? Synthetic motor oil maximizes engine power and fuel economy. To see why, we'd need a microscope, so we'll have to settle for using our imaginations.

The molecules of conventional motor oil are long hydrocarbon chains. Synthetic motor oil, on the other hand, has uniform, round molecules. Which is more slippery, a pile of pencils or a pile of marbles?

Synthetic motor oil lubricates better because there's less friction. That means better wear protection, cooler operating temperatures, more power and better fuel economy. And synthetic oil doesn't sludge up like conventional oil, so it prevents those small oil passages from clogging up.

Some manufacturers are extending oil change intervals. The added protection of synthetic oil covers you for these longer intervals. Talk with your service advisor about how you drive and see if he thinks you can benefit from synthetic oil. Also ask about the appropriate oil change interval for synthetic, because it may very well be longer than for conventional oil.

Most of us here in Clovis have a busy life and might occasionally miss an oil change; go ahead, admit it. Since we're not perfect, doesn't it make sense to use a motor oil that's got your back?

Now synthetic oil costs more. But it lasts longer, protects better and increases fuel economy. You'll likely save money in the long run. If you're serious about making your car last longer, start using synthetic motor oil right away.

Give us a call to schedule an oil change, or visit us at our J M & H Automotive website.

    Honest and fair mechanics! I've worked with Steve both times I took my far it. Good prices. He doesn't fix things that don't need fixed! Awesome place!

    I was recommended by a friend and was very happy with the service I received. They stand behind their work.

    Steve is fantastic. Couldn't get my headlight bulbs unscrewed myself, he told me to come by and he got them both done. Even though I'd never been a customer before, he charged me zero! Definately a new place to take my cars for maintenance & repairs. As stated in other reviews this is a shop that has integrity and is not out to overcharge you. I'll be back.

    Steve helped me out in a pinch. I just returned from a 2 week road trip and needed to get a new alternator before hitting the road again. I didn't have much time on my hands, but Steve worked with me. I was pleased with the service, timeliness, and honesty. Thanks Steve!

    Outstanding! They saved my life because I was driving with loose ball joints from MT. They were able to help me and I am back on the road. Thank you so much Mike and Erik! Terrific people and very helpful.

    Great shop. I was referred to JM&H by some friends and was it worth it. I called and spoke with Stephen, got an appointment set, on the day of my appointment I get there describe what I think is wrong and supply eric the Mechanic who worked on my car, with the parts that I brought. An hour later I was all fixed up and back out on the road!! Big shout out to Stephen, Mike and Eric! Thanks guys!

    I've been a customer for over 30 years when Joe, Mike and Hans first started. What has kept me here is that tradition of quality service, honesty and fairness that Steve is maintaining. Big "thumbs up" for J, M & H!

  • reviewicon

    I have brought multiple vehicles to J M & H and they have always been able to get me in quickly, give me an honest quote on what needs to be done and get the work done in a timely manner. The staff is very friendly and I've never felt like I was paying to much for anything done.

    I went for the first time this past week and I have to say that I had amazing service. Stephen the owner, is a stand-up guy and runs a great business. He goes out of his way to make sure you're well taken care of and that you leave happy with the work. The service was quick and well done. I would HIGHLY recommend this shop!

    Good service and took my vehicle in on a late afternoon. Got the A/C repair done in under an hour. Half the price of Jiffy Lube for the same repair. Best place!

  • reviewicon

    I can definitely say that they are honest, trustworthy and very friendly there! Being a single female, it's always scary going somewhere to have your car worked on because you never know what to expect or what some company may try to con you into buying. With this company, that is the last thing you need to worry about...I 100% trust them and the advice they give! The service was phenomenal and they take care of you immediately. I'm definitely going back to them for my car needs!!
