Most everyday drivers don't have a working knowledge of their engine and how it operates. While this isn't essential to driving, it does leave these motorists in a position where they feel their mechanic is the only person who can keep their car in good shape. However, with the rising price in mechanic visits, drivers are left in the tricky spot of trying to reduce their monthly and yearly costs while keeping their car running.

How Replacing Your Conventional Oil With a Synthetic Oil Change in Yamhill County Can Reduce Your Mechanic Costs

With the heavy reliance on our vehicles, cutting back on visits to the mechanic for regular maintenance comes at the risk of causing further damage to a primary vehicle. While regular mechanic visits are advised to keep your engine in good working order, AMSOIL Direct Jobber - Synthetics Northwest has information to share on how you can reduce the bill you receive from the mechanic during each visit.

What the Most Expensive Mechanic Charges?

If you were to sort the charges of your mechanic by price, the two most expensive items would be;
  • The cost of replacing internal engine components
  • The cost of your mechanic installing these components

The Cost of Each Engine Component

If you were to break down the cost of ordering each engine part it would include costs for the actual manufacturing of the part, the cost of shipping this to a warehouse, the storage costs in the warehouse while it awaits ordering, and the travel cost to get the part from the warehouse to your mechanic. These costs, both small and large, quickly add up to the price your mechanic pays. Of course, most mechanics will likely charge a fee for their service in ordering the part, resulting in a final cost you pay your mechanic.

The Cost of Installation - the Labor Costs

Of course, once the part has been delivered it needs to be installed in your vehicle and checked to ensure it is working correctly. As the demand for mechanical services increases, so too does their hourly rate. Unless you stand beside your mechanic as all of this work is completed, it can be hard to know whether the charge for their labor is reasonable when compared to the service they are providing. With the information we have prepared below you will read how a synthetic oil change in Yamhill County can work to reduce these costs. If you have read ahead and are looking for the right product for your vehicle, call AMSOIL Direct Jobber - Synthetics Northwest at (888) 283-3580 (Toll-Free) to place an order today.

Reduce the Need to Replace Engine Parts as Often

We will be the first to sing the praises of AMSOIL synthetic oil, and as good as it is, it can't reduce the cost of the parts your engine needs. However, it can do a lot to reduce the need to order these parts as often. It all comes down to the protection provided by conventional and high-quality synthetic oil. While your temperature gauge may sit around the mid-level on your gauge, the operating temperatures inside your engine are very high. A conventional (also known as a traditional oil) is susceptible to breaking down under these temperatures. When breakdown occurs, the additives inside conventional oil break apart from the primary fluid. These additives are either caught by your oil filter as your oil travels through, or accumulate as build up on your engine components themselves. Without these, your oil is stripped of its ability to maintain a complete barrier of protection between each engine part as it operates. Without this barrier, each part grinds up against each other, causing small chips to occur. This is a contributing factor when considering engine wear, and can lead to a dramatic increase in the need for these parts to be replaced. In comparison, a high-quality synthetic oil is purpose designed to resist breaking down under these temperatures and includes additives which actively work to maintain the consistency of the engine oil. Under instances of extreme temperatures, a high-quality synthetic oil continues to protect engine components against excessive levels of engine wear and can reduce the frequency which these parts needs to be replaced.

Reduce the Amount of Time Your Mechanic Needs to Spend on Your Vehicle

Of course, with the reduction in the frequency that each part needs to be replaced, comes too a reduction in the amount of time your mechanic needs to spend on your vehicle during your regular visits. The less billable time they spend on your vehicle, the lower the costs they need to charge to you during each visit, leaving you with a potentially lower amount you need to pay each time.

How to Perform the Best Synthetic Oil Change in Yamhill County on Your Vehicle

While it can be tempting to stop taking your car to the mechanic or take it less often, failing to provide your car with basic maintenance can lead to even more expensive costs in the long term. The best way to keep your car in good shape and reduce your costs is to reduce the need for additional work to be completed each time. If you aren't sure which high-quality synthetic oil is right for your vehicle, don't take a guess and waste your money on the wrong product.
