Motor Oil Myths and Facts

There are many different myths about motor oil, and we at Bruce Walters Kia want to help you distinguish fact or myth so you can give your vehicle the best possible care. Knowing the facts can add life to your vehicle and help it run as smoothly as possible.

Unlike in the past, motor oil does not need to be changed every 2000 miles. Each vehicle has different requirements, so drivers should follow the recommendations in the owner’s manual. It’s perfectly alright to switch back and forth between conventional motor oil and synthetic motor oil. A false belief is that once you use synthetic oil, you can’t switch back. The oil and oil filter both help clean the engine and both should be changed at the same time. Black motor oil does not necessarily mean your vehicle is due for an oil change.

Come to our Pikeville, KY dealership with all your motor oil-related questions or to schedule a service call for your vehicle.
