Motor Oil Myths

The motor oil in your vehicle is important because this is what helps your engine run efficiently and smoothly. Just like other routine maintenance that needs to be done to your vehicle, a routine oil change is important as well. Unfortunately, there is some misinformation out there that can be quite confusing when it comes to changing your oil and what type of oil to use. Let's dispel some common motor oil myths that are out there:

  • Motor oil can be either synthetic or conventional. There are pros and cons to both and even if you have been using one of these types for awhile, you can switch to the other one if you wish.
  • Dark motor oil doesn't always require an oil change. It's best to let the professionals decide if there is a problem.
  • Your first oil change doesn't need to be within a few weeks of buying a new car. Waiting six months is acceptable.
