Our associates want to help you keep your vehicle running smoothly around Brewton, AL. Getting oil changes on a regular basis is one of the best ways to maintain your engine. Have you noticed the set of numbers and letters on a motor oil bottle but don't know what it stands for? These numbers and letters represent motor oil viscosity ratings.

Motor oils with lower viscosity ratings are better for use during the winter. Low-viscosity motor oil isn't as thick as high-viscosity motor oil, so it moves throughout the engine much faster. This is beneficial during the winter because it puts less stress on your engine during cold engine starts.

When it's hot outside, a high-viscosity motor oil will help your engine function optimally. This oil is thick and helps protect engine components from excessive heat. Motor oils with a high viscosity rating will keep the engine parts lubricated during the summer.
