Viscosity Defines Your Car's Motor Oil Grade

Motor oil is engineered to keep a vehicle's engine running smoothly under various conditions. The grade of this important fluid is available with several labels and indicators that might seem like technical jargon for some drivers. However, it's important to understand the viscosity of motor oil for your car.

The viscosity of automotive oil usually comes with two numbers. Each rating simply indicates the resistance of flow at different temperatures. The first number identifies the viscosity in cold conditions. The second number refers to the viscosity when the surrounding air is hot. The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) sets the latest standards for the grade and other classification of oil for passenger and commercial vehicles.
