Motor Oil Myths You Need to Stop Believing

When you are talking to people all around Harriman you are probably going to hear about one myth or another when it comes to motor oil that has just been accepted as fact. For instance, did you know that the "W" on a bottle of oil doesn't stand for weight? It turns out that W is for winter. In other words, the package of oil is telling you how viscous that blend is going to be in cold weather.

Another myth is that engine oil that is black has to be changed. It turns out that while changing this oil doesn't hurt, it not being amber anymore is not the end all and be all for when it comes to knowing whether or not the oil is bad. It just means the oil is doing its job and cleaning gunk off your engine. Stop into Orange County BMW and discuss other myths you might have heard and get the stories straight.
