You've probably heard one or more of these motor oil myths, but Gengras Volvo wants to make sure that you know the truth. Let's talk about oil changes and what kind of information you should watch out for.

You may have heard that an oil change should be performed when your oil is dark in color. While it starts out as an amber shade early on, some oils have additives that will naturally turn the oil dark as it starts to work.

An oil change should be performed in accordance with your owner's manual. Every 3000 miles isn't necessarily the best choice. It also depends on the type of oil that was used. Certain oils can remain in your engine for longer periods of time.

Some people claim that synthetic oil is a commitment that you make for life. In actuality, you can switch between conventional and synthetic as much as you would like.
