As oil change time approaches, perhaps it is wise to think about the viscosity rating. After all, the seasons change, and you don’t want the wrong viscosity rating for the coming temperatures. Viscosity refers to how fast or how slow the oil pours. Low-temperature viscosity ratings, the ones before the “W” on the container, gives you an idea of how well the oil runs during the winter. The number after the “W” provides the hot weather indicator.

The average car owner might not think much about viscosity ratings, but a prudent one who cares about a car will. Choosing the right oil can add to better engine performance and, potentially, extend its life.

Are you unsure about what oil viscosity level or brand of motor oil to select? Ask a technician at a service department in Caldwell, ID.
