The Truth About Motor Oil Changes

When it comes to oil changes, you've probably heard a lot of inconsistent information. There are a lot of myths out there that may lead you to make unnecessary decisions about your automotive care. Our goal is to clear some common misconceptions so that you can become an informed vehicle owner.

Many people believe that an oil change is required every 3,000 miles you drive. While this may be true for some vehicles, it's not always the same. There are many cars that will do fine with up to 7,000 miles between changes. It all depends on the manufacturer, so take a look at your manual to make sure. Another common myth is that oil needs to be changed if it appears black. In reality, a black or dark amber color means that the oil is doing its job. It's absorbing dirt particles so that they don't affect your engine. Color has nothing to do with how well it's performing.
