Does your vehicle need an oil change?

We here at Gordie Boucher Nissan of Greenfield have heard a lot of myths and rumors when it comes to the motor oil in our vehicle. We feel that it's important for you to be an informed vehicle owner, and today we want to clear up some of these myths.

If your motor oil turns black, it needs to be changed. While your motor oil may not have its amber color anymore, it doesn't mean that it needs to be changed. The dark coloring is caused by the oil absorbing the dirt so that it doesn't get inside your engine.

If you use synthetic oil once in your vehicle, you have to keep using it in all future oil changes. Synthetic oils are designed to handle higher temperatures and work to keep your engine clean. If you need to switch back to conventional oil, you should find one that has the right viscosity that your manufacturer recommends.
