What You Know About Motor Oil is Probably Wrong

Motor oil is a necessary part of car maintenance, but you probably have wrong ideas about it. Volvo Cars Edison is here to educate you with a couple of motor oil myth busters.

If you believe a pre-trip oil change is necessary, you believe a myth. Change the oil only if it's time for it or if your normal oil change date occurs during your away trip. Another myth is that synthetic oil causes leaks. That used to happen in the 1970s, but it's not a problem now. One exception to that is using synthetic oil on an older car which has sludge on its seals. That sludge might conceal cracks, and when synthetic oil cleans everything, a leak may be revealed.
