Many people are all too willing to pass vehicle maintenance knowledge onto others. However, although they may have good intentions, the information they provide may be far from the truth. If you are not sure of the information you receive, talk with our service center here at Alan Jay Kia technician to stay informed.

The color of motor oil often confuses many. Once the oil turns dark, owners may be under the impression that an oil change is necessary. However, the color just means that the oil is absorbing dirt and debris. The fluid has not broken down and does not need replacing. Consult your vehicle manual for the recommended schedules.

Some believe they can save a little money by not changing the oil filter with every oil change. However, this is also not true. Unless you have the filter changed at the same time, you run the risk of contaminating your engine and creating costly problems.
