Synthetic oil is man-made via chemical synthesis and does not contain any natural petroleum. It is designed to mimic oil's lubricative property but has a smaller molecule that improves its viscosity. It also contains additives that help it resist thermal breakdown for longer. As the most advanced motor oil technology, it offers the most extended change schedule of every 10,000 miles.
The engine’s moving parts need a lubricant to move freely and at the recommended temperature. Synthetic motor oil will eventually succumb to thermal breakdown and form into a sludge that neither lubricates nor cools the engine properly. Oil changes remove the threat of broken-down oil and the contamination that it contains. This cleans the engine while introducing fresh engine oil at peak viscosity. Oil changes are essential because they are one of the best ways to achieve reliable engine performance, fuel efficiency, and the longest life.
When the synthetic motor oil in your engine needs to be changed at 10,000 miles, but you put off service until 11,000 miles because you believe it is really not a problem as you have done this before, rest assured that this is wishful thinking. Sludgy broken-down oil with contaminants will not lubricate the moving parts properly, and friction will increase alongside heat. This friction and heat will allow for rapid component wear up, including damage if the situation is bad enough. Fuel efficiency will decline as the engine runs rougher and louder until finally, the engine overheats with catastrophic damages.
