Oil Viscosity Ratings Measure Protection

Motor oil provides a vital level of protection for vehicle engines against heat and friction. Without motor oil, most engines would quickly burn out. The essential protection occurs when oil flows inside the engine and covers the moving parts. The rate of flow is called viscosity. Standard labels have a low temperature rating, the letter W, and the high temperature rating, for example, 10 W 40.

Most drivers know that oil must flow over the engine parts immediately and in both cold and warm conditions. Today, there may be many choices in motor oil, and some have various additives for extra protection.
