Do You Understand Your Vehicle's Oil?

Your vehicle's motor oil is a vital component for which a better understanding is necessary. This is because without it or if it has deteriorated, your vehicle will run poorly or not at all. A good knowledge of oil viscosity can help you maintain a vehicle that performs well in all conditions.

Oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle, so you should know about viscosity and its effects. Viscosity measures how well oil flows. Lower viscosity flows faster while higher viscosity flows slower. Since oil naturally gets thick in cold weather, using an oil with a low viscosity during this time of year is wise. High viscosity oil is best used during summer because it gets thin when heated. If it gets too thin, then it is no longer properly lubricating the parts it's supposed to.
