Motor Oil Viscosity: What Does It Mean For Your Car?

The technical details a car owner needs to know today have grown since cars have been on the road. Motor oil is one of those details: What kind and what viscosity of motor oil does it need?

Car engines operate at extreme temperatures, both hot and cold. Motor oil is critical to keeping the moving parts from grinding. It needs to be thick enough to lubricate them, but not too thin. The viscosity rating you see on motor oil rates its thickness at cold and hot temperatures. The first number is its viscosity in cold weather, and the second number is its thickness when the engine is hot.
