Myths About Motor Oil

Our team here at Volvo Cars of Perrysburg hear a lot of myths and rumors about motor oil. We want you to be an informed vehicle owner, and here are some common myths.

Once your vehicle oil is black, you should change it. Modern engine oils continue to clean, protect, and lubricate your engine. When the oil is darkened, it means that it’s been absorbing dirt and other particles to prevent them from depositing in your engine.

Another common myth is that you don’t need to change the oil filter when you change the oil. Dirt and other particles trapped in the old filter can contaminate the new oil, but changing the filter each time can prevent this from happening.

These are just a couple of the myths about motor oil. We encourage you to reach out to our team here in Volvo Cars of Perrysburg with questions about oil-changes and to schedule your vehicle for service today.
