Don't Fall for the Motor Oil Myths

It's common knowledge that motor oil is vital to the life of your car. A vehicle just won't run without motor oil lubricating and cleaning the engine. Though drivers know the importance of oil, they almost always believe some common misconceptions about motor oil. Let's explore.

Many motorists think the "W" behind the two numbers of motor oil means weight, but in reality, it means weather. The numbers indicate the viscosity level of the oil. Unfortunately, some drivers also believe that it's unnecessary to have your oil filter changed when you have your oil changed, but it is essential. Replacing both the oil and the oil filter at the same time ensures that old contaminants that may be trapped in the filter don't make their way into the new oil and cause damage to your vehicle.

Having your oil changed is simple. Call the Land Rover Austin service shop today to have the oil changed in your car.
