Dark Color Oil after oil change

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

A few days ago, I took my car to a car shop nearby for an oil change. However, after a week of usage the oil is black. Is it normal for the oil to be dark after oil change? Do I need to visit a car shop to check-up and possible repair?

It sorta depends on what type of car you have...

Oil can be very, very dark (black even) and still be effective.

However, as a general rule: New, clean oil is amber in color.

My diesel has black oil after an oil change....and It's very common.
