Motor Oil Myths Explained

As an informed car owner, it is important to be able to spot the difference between facts and total myths. That is why we here at Woodhouse Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM FIAT felt it was necessary to debunk some of the most common motor oil myths for you.

The first is the old adage that your oil should be changed every 3,000 miles. While this may be the case for some cars, modern technology has greatly increased this number to up to 10,000 miles in some cases. The second is that the “W” in the type of oil stands for “Weight”. It actually stands for “Winter” in regards to the viscosity of the oil in winter.
