Common Motor Oil Myths

Motor oil myths are quite common. However, with a little help, you will understand the difference between fact and fiction. Many have heard that they must have the oil changed every 2,000 to 3,000 miles. However, this maintenance requirement varies between vehicles. Some manufacturers recommend routine oil changes every 7,000 miles. Simply look in your owner's manual for your vehicle's specifications.

Some people insist on having the oil changed before embarking on a road trip. However, this is not always necessary. If the oil is not needing to be changed before the end of the journey, merely wait. On the other hand, if the designated mileage recommendation occurs while on the road, have the oil changed prior to or during the trip if possible. If you have any questions concerning oil changes or types of oils, feel free to visit with one of our service center here at Zeigler Maserati of Grandville.
