The Truth About Motor Oil

There are plenty of myths circulating about motor oil. Everything from how often you should have an oil change to what kind of oil you should use is called into question. Here at First Choice Honda, we believe in providing our customers with facts so that they can make an informed decision about their vehicle.

Contrary to what you may have been told, motor oil doesn't always have to be changed every 3,000 miles. Every vehicle has different requirements. While most newer vehicles have an oil life monitor, it's still important to consult your owner's manual when deciding on a vehicle service schedule.

You may have heard that once motor oil turns black, it's no longer working at its full potential. This simply isn't true. Motor oil absorbs particles of dirt so they don't damage your engine. This causes the motor oil to darken over time.

If you have any questions or want to schedule an oil change, contact our Laramie service center today.
