Have you been thinking of getting your oil changed, but you've been hearing some recommendations that contradict what you thought you knew about oil changes? Lithia Nissan of Medford wants to make sure that you know the facts about routine oil changes. There's a lot of misinformation out there, and we want to clear the air.

Motor oil should be changed out based on the recommendation in your owner's manual. There are people who swear by an oil change every 3000 miles. This isn't necessarily the best time frame for your automobile.

Motor oil has a distinct golden color when it's brand new. This color will change because of the additives that are put into the oil product. This is perfectly normal, and you shouldn't immediately get an oil change if your oil has become dark.

If you used synthetic oil for your last oil change, you have the ability to switch to conventional.
