The Importance of Motor Oil Viscosity Ratings

You have probably heard of motor oil viscosity, but what does it mean? At Honda of Abilene, we try to keep you informed about your vehicle to extend its lifespan and ensure that is performs well. You can read further to learn more about motor oil viscosity ratings.

Viscosity is the measurement of how well the motor oil can resist flow. If a motor oil has a high viscosity rating, it will move slower than a motor oil with a low viscosity rating. Have you noticed the number and letter on the front of a motor oil bottle? This is how you can tell its viscosity. The number will let you know its viscosity in hot temperatures, and the letter will tell you with viscosity in colder temperatures.

When you need to have your vehicle's oil changed, contact our service center.
