Common Misconceptions Regarding Motor Oil

When it comes to vehicle maintenance, oil and filter changes are the most important task in preserving the performance and longevity of your car. Oil allows the various parts of your engine to move smoothly while minimizing friction. As a result, you will notice reduced wear, stable temperatures, and less likelihood of problems later in life.

Over the years, there's been numerous falsely spread information regarding motor oil and its changes. We're here to squash those lies.

When synthetic oil first hit the market, it was very skeptical because it did cause leaks for some drivers. Today, it seldom happens, thanks to advancements in the automotive industry. Formulas are much better and designed to protect your engine better and last longer between changes.
