Understanding Oil Means A Longer Car Life

Are you the type of person who likes to understand how things work? Have you ever wondered what role motor oil plays in your vehicle and why it is so important? Understanding the nature of your vehicle's motor oil can go a long way to help keep your vehicle running better for a longer period.

The motor oil in your vehicle serves the purpose of lubricating vital parts. Viscosity measures how motor oil resists flow. Oil with low viscosity flows fast and is best used during the cold season. This is because oil thickens when the temperature is low. Higher viscosity oil flows much slower and is best used when the weather is hot. The reason for this is that heat thins out motor oil lessening its ability to lubricate parts the way they should.
