Oil is a Component That Often Gets Taken For Granted

Motor oil is one of those car components whose simplicity hides just how important it is to the function on your car. Its purpose is to keep vital parts lubricated so that your vehicle continues to run as it should. Learning about motor oil and its viscosity can better help you achieve this goal.

The main job of oil is to keep parts lubricated and viscosity plays aids in this. Viscosity measures oil's resistance to flow. Lower viscosity oil flows faster than higher viscosity oil. As such, it is best used in the winter months because cold weather thickens oil. On the other hand, high viscosity oil is thinned by heat and is ideal for use during the warm season. Thin oil reduces its effectiveness to lubricate parts.
