Motor Oil Myth: You Should Always Change Your Oil Before a Road Trip

Many myths have circulated over the years about when you should get your car's motor oil changed. Many are handed down to us from the early days of automotive maintenance. One of these enduring myths is that you should always have your car's motor oil changed before taking it on a long road trip.

While it's a good idea to have your car's oil changed beforehand if it will be due for a change during the road trip, there's no reason to change it otherwise. Motor oil will last just as long during a road trip as it does during normal driving conditions.

At Wayne Ford, our automotive service technicians are happy to help you with questions about changing your car's motor oil. Bring it to our service center in Wayne, NJ when it's time for its next oil change.
