A Brief Explanation of Motor Oil Viscosity Ratings

Your motor oil is an important substance that keeps your engine running well, and it is vital to keep the right type of motor oil in your engine. Have you heard of motor oil viscosity ratings? If you want to learn more about motor oil viscosity ratings, read our content below.

The motor oil viscosity rating will determine how much resistance the motor oil has to flow. There is a number that is followed by a letter on bottles of motor oil that let you know their viscosity ratings. The number will tell you how well it resists flow when the engine is hot, and the letter will let you know how much it resists flow when the engine is cold.

We invite you to stop by one of our service centers at Cox Auto Group when you need to have your vehicle's motor oil changed.
