We've all heard advice concerning motor oil, how often to change it, and what it's color means. But, is all that advice really true? Let's take a look at two of those myths and get to the bottom of them.

The oil need to be changed every 3000 miles. This one is true for some vehicles, but not for many. Some manufacturers recommend oil changes every 3000 miles. However, many recommend waiting longer, even up to 7000 miles. Modern motor oil can last longer than the old versions ever could. Plus, modern engines run more efficiently. Always follow manufacturer recommendations.

You don't need to change the filter when you change the oil. This one is totally false. Put a dirty oil filter into clean oil, and you are going to contaminate the new oil. The contaminants can damage the engine. Always get your oil changed here at GILLMAN MITSUBISHI.
