Myths Regarding Motor Oil

Although there is no question that keeping motor oil in your vehicle is important, there are a lot of myths permeating such things. We here at Momentum Volvo Cars seek to educate you on some common myths about motor oil.

First of all, it's not necessarily true that you need to get your engine oil changed every 3,000 miles. Today, some vehicles will even allow for every 7,000 miles or more. Second, it's also not always true that if the engine oil color is black, that it needs to be changed. The main job of the engine oil is to keep the car clean, so if it is black it is simply doing its job.

It is false to believe that you do not need to change your oil filter every time you change your oil. The reason this is needed is because it can prevent contaminants trapped in the oil filter to wreck havoc on the engine parts.

Knowledge is definitely power when it comes to oil changes. If you have any other questions about motor oil maintenance, talk to the service experts at Momentum Volvo Cars about it today!
