Understanding the Motor Oil Viscosity Rating

Motor oil plays a vital role in auto engine performance. It protects the parts against failure from excessive heat and friction. The ratings describe the thickness or flow at warm or cool temperature. The first number is the cool air flow rating, followed by the letter W, and then the warm air rating. For example, 10 W 30 is a popular type of oil for hot and cold weather.

Drivers understand the need to get the right oil and in the right time frame. Oil can break down if not changed soon enough and cause engine damage.
