You've probably received a lot of sage advice over the years about motor oil. You might be surprised that some of it aren't true. Let's look at a couple of common motor oil myths.

The first myth is that you have to change your oil every 3000 miles. Actually, this is only true for some cars. It's important to refer to your owner's manual for the manufacturer's recommendations for oil change frequency. Some do recommend it every 3000 miles. Others, however, recommend it at anywhere from 3000 to 7000 miles.

The second myth is that you need to change the oil when it turns black. That's not true. Today's motor oils have cleansing agents in them that keep the inside of the engine clean. The dark oil shows that the oil is doing its job. If you need an oil change, stop by the service department here at Victory Kia in Victoria, TX.
