Motor Oil Viscosity Explained

When you're looking for the right motor oil for your vehicle, you may be presented with a wide range of options. You may notice different numbers on every bottle. These numbers represent the oil's viscosity. It's important to understand what the viscosity is and how it affects your vehicle.

Viscosity refers to the oil's ability to resist flow. Oils with a lower viscosity are thinner and flow easily. However, higher viscosity ratings mean that the oil is thick and will take some work to flow around your engine. Most oils have two viscosity ratings. The first is how the oil flows in cold environments while the second is how it flows in warm environments. Oil is essential for proper engine function. It's important to find the right option for your environment and vehicle.
