Being a responsible car owner means understanding how to take care of your vehicle. One area many people find confusing is motor oil, so we're helping you separate fact from fiction.

Always change your oil every 3,000 miles. Maybe heard that, believed it and act on it diligently. Truth is, each vehicle is different. While some need new oil every 3,000 miles, others can go twice that or more. Manufacturers determine how often to change oil, and many modern cars have an oil life monitor to keep you up to date on its condition. Another myth debunked is that black motor oil needs changing. That dark coloring is probably just dirt the oil picked up while it cleaned your engine.

If it's time for an oil change, stop by Volvo Cars Charlotte. We can take care of that and all your other auto service needs.
