What do You Really Know about Motor Oil?

Motor oil goes into a car to keep the engine running smoothly. Drivers know that, but they also think they know facts about motor oil that are actually myths.

Older oil is darker, but don't buy into the myth that darker is bad. Motor oil picks up things that might contaminate the engine, and that changes its color. When it is actually time to change the oil, do you need to also change the oil filter? Some drivers don't think it's necessary, but it is. Old filters have contaminants trapped inside, which could escape and get into the new oil after an oil change. That spells potential damage to the vehicle's engine.

Maybe you've bought into various oil change myths and want to clear things up. Head over to DCH Kia of Temecula showroom in Temecula, CA, and let us service your vehicle and answer your questions.
