The Truth about Motor Oil Changes

Drivers know to have their motor oil changed, but many folks are confused about when that actually needs to happen.

Checking the oil in the car, you're shocked to see it's turned dark. Don't panic. Oil protects and lubricates the engine, and while doing so, it picks up dirt and particles that might contaminate the engine. What it picks up makes the oil darker, and that means the oil is doing its job. Another time you might think you need an oil change but probably don't is before a long road trip. Vehicles don't need oil changes before every road trip. They do when it's the regularly scheduled time for an oil change, so if that's the case, definitely change the oil. Otherwise, hit the road without worrying about motor oil.
