Be Wise About When to Change Your Oil

On your last visit to the automotive store, did you give the motor oil a second thought when you passed it in the aisle? Did it cross your mind how much motor oil is vital to the proper and ongoing function of your vehicle? A little expansion of what you know about the nature of oil can assist you in keeping your car running like a champ.

Motor oil has the sole purpose of ensuring that parts of your vehicle's engine stay lubricated. Oil viscosity measures how resistant oil is to flow. This is important because cold temperatures naturally thicken oil while hot temperatures thin it out. With this knowledge in hand, you'll know that low viscosity oil works best in cold weather and high viscosity oil is better suited for warmer seasons. Using the right oil at the right time prolongs your vehicle's life.
