How to Read Motor Oil Viscosity Ratings

The oil viscosity numbers represent oil flow at high and low temperatures. The rating states the low-temperature number first, then the letter W, and finally the warm rating. The blend of high viscosity and low viscosity oils ensures protection in the warm or cold air. For example, 10 W 30 is a popular type of motor oil.

Drivers understand the importance of the right oil in their vehicle. They must also get oil changes at the right time. If too much time passes, the oil can lose its capacity to lubricate and hold heat. The excessive heat and friction can damage the engine.
