Motor Oil Myths Debunked

Despite numerous innovative upgrades to automobiles, people still believe myths about the motor oil that is vital to your car.

Many people still believe that you should have your oil changed in your vehicle every 3,000 miles but with most vehicles that just isn't true. Many cars require an oil change every 5,000 miles, while some recommend changing the oil every 7,000 miles. Motor oil is designed to clean your car's engine, so seeing dark-colored motor oil doesn't mean your oil needs replacing, but that it's doing its job. A lot of drivers also believe that using a synthetic oil means you can never use any other type of oil in your vehicle. This is another common misconception, alternating between synthetic and conventional motor oil is not harmful to your car.
