Understanding Motor Oil Myths

With so many motor oil myths lingering from the past, it’s hard to know fact from fiction. Stop at Audi Albuquerque and speak with our qualified professionals about oil changes or any other automotive concerns you may have.

One common motor oil myth is that motor oil needs to be changed if it’s black. As the motor oil lubricates the engine, which is its job, it’s also picking up dirt and debris. Because it's doing its job, it may be black. Consequently, the filter is going to get dirty, too. If you don’t replace it, the debris from the filter will get back on the engine. Change the filter at each oil change.
