High-Mileage Motor Oils

VIDEO: High-Mileage Motor Oils

This subject used to be so simple.

Today, the oils you put in the vehicle are very specific to the design of the vehicle and the use for which it’s intended.

Older, high-mileage vehicles have different needs for their oils.

Vehicles with more than 75,000 miles can develop conditions that require special lubricants. Older engines can have ring wear, deposits and leaks.

These conditions can all be improved by an engine oil with special formulations. High-mileage engine oils include additive packages that assist in removing depositions from valves and rings.
