Motor Oil Myths - Get It Right!

Vehicle ownership is a big responsibility because you're in charge of maintenance like changing the oil. If you’ve heard tons of motor oil recommendations and are uncertain, stop at Redding Kia] and let our techs service your vehicle.

Here are some motor oil myths that are just not true.

  • The motor oil needs changing if it’s black. It may be black because it’s been lubricating and cleaning the motor, which is its job.
  • The oil filter doesn’t need to be changed every time. Because the oil has been doing its job, you need to change the oil filter so old debris from the filter doesn’t get to the new oil.

Maintaining your vehicle will ensure it drives well and lasts as long as possible. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, call us or visit us in Redding, CA. We offer various automotive services and are here to help.
