Don't Worry About These Two Common Motor Oil Myths

We all have our road trip checklists, but there's one item that might be on your list, that doesn't need to be there. There's a widely-held belief that if you are going on a road trip, then you absolutely need to get your oil changed before you leave. That's not necessarily true. If you will be due for an oil change before you get back, then it is probably a good idea to get the oil change before you leave. But if you won't be due before you get back, don't worry about it.

Another thing that you shouldn't necessarily worry about is if your oil is amber or dark brown in color. Some people think that this is a sign that your oil needs to be changed, but it's not necessarily. Your oil is supposed to clean your engine, so if it's not time for an oil change, you don't need to worry.

If you want to learn about all the other things that you don't need to worry about when it comes to your oil, come to our service center here at Lithia Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Medford in Medford, OR, and we'll be happy to let you know.
