You Must Choose

Attempting to quantify the differences between conventional and synthetic oil pertains largely to understanding the way in which oil is treated chemically because synthetic oil still contains traces of oil. The degree to which synthetic oil is chemically treated is enormous, and the chemicals and compounds combined with small amounts of oil do still amount to allow for engines to process it similarly to conventional oil. The benefits of synthetic oil are numerous in some cases, including a high likelihood of lasting longer within a given engine.

Just like the way a human being has a heart, it’s the same for a car. A car's heart is the engine, and for it to last for a long time, maintenance is required. The engine consists of rotating and moving parts, and if it isn’t lubricated, the engine will wear out due to friction.

How a Mythbusters Video Helped a Woman Survive Her Car Crashing Into a Frozen River

With so many bodies of water -- including the Atlantic Ocean -- in the Summerville, Goose Creek, and Charleston area, it may have crossed your mind one or two times, "what happens if my car sinks?" Most of us don't have an answer to that, except maybe, "panic!"

Theresa Booth had to face this reality head-on on chilly Minnesota morning in 2007.

With her baby daughter in the backseat, Booth drove over a patch of icy road, and lost control. Within seconds, their vehicle was sinking under freezing river water. It was already too late to push the doors open -- then…

How can you make your dog and your car get along?

1. Play with your dog before you go.
