Some Common Motor Oil Myths Debunked

The bane of an informed car owner's existence are myths about your car that keep you from getting the most out of it. That is why our experienced team here at Rock Road Auto Plaza want to debunk some of the most common myths related to motor oil that has been circulating lately.

The first is that if your motor oil is black, it always needs to be changed immediately. This is false and could end up costing you some serious money if you were to abide by it. Instead, go based off of what it says in the owner's manual. The second is about what the W in your motor oil type stands for. Many think it stands for weight, but it is actually an acronym for winter - which is a reference to the type of viscosity that is required in your vehicle during the colder months.
