Oils for high mileage vehicles are generally recommended for use on any ride with over 120,700 km on the odometer. Doesn’t matter if it’s 5 years old or 25. As vehicles are used more and the km add up, the likelihood of engine, performance and maintenance issues developing increases as well, making it even more important to keep all maintenance needs up to date.
As engines wear, seals can shrink and crack. Compression in each of the cylinders can begin to weaken. When those things happen, engines lose performance and start to consume more oil. Not good. Ultimately it can lead to major engine repairs. High mileage motor oil can help slow down engine wear and actually counteract some of the effects of Father Time. Most high mileage motor oils contain special thickeners and conditioning agents that can replenish worn and leaky seals and in many cases actually restore some of the lost compression. It’s not a cure all, but studies have shown high mileage motor oils can reduce oil consumption and keep older engines running healthier, longer. So you can keep the “family” intact.
