Motor Oil Myths to Avoid

Have you ever encountered motor oil myths? Maybe you have without realizing it. At our dealership and service center, we have heard many oil falsehoods. To help you make better oil-related decisions, we will debunk a couple of these myths now.

One oil myth insists that black oil must be immediately changed. In truth, you should only change your oil at the mileage points indicated by your vehicle's owner's manual. A black hue on your car's dipstick does not indicate severely used oil. It simply shows that the oil, which is supposed to both lubricate and clean, has absorbed engine contaminants.

Also, some drivers think that reusing oil filters through multiple oil changes is okay. Actually, this practice can lead to oil contamination, engine damage and costly repairs. When you change your oil, change your filter!
