Motor Oil: Separating Truth From Fiction

Changing your oil is a pretty easy service for your vehicle, but you still might be doing it wrong. At Permian Toyota, we want our clientele to stay as informed as possible. That's why we compiled a few myths about motor oil - so that you can save as much money as possible on servicing your vehicle.

  • You don't need to change your oil because it's black. Black motor oil is just a sign that your engine is getting cleaned, not that your oil needs changing.
  • You do need to change your oil filter when you change your oil. Not doing so could damage your engine.
  • You can switch between synthetic and conventional oils all you want. You don't have to commit to just one type of oil.

We hope that we were able to help you save money by debunking these common oil myths. Feel free to come by Permian Toyota anytime for more info or servicing needs
