High Viscosity Oil Vs. Low Viscosity Oil

The type of engine oil a person uses in a vehicle may depend on how warm or cold it is in a given location. As a general rule, vehicle owners want engine oil with a lower viscosity when it is cold outside and a higher viscosity when it is warm outside.

Lower viscosity is better for colder temperatures because it tends to get thicker in colder weather. By starting at a lower viscosity, it can travel through the engine in a timely manner. When it is hot out, oil tends to get thinner, which may not be ideal when it comes to lubricating engine parts.

Starting at a higher viscosity allows the oil to thin out without losing the ability to do its job. Engine oil should be changed on a regular basis, and vehicle owners can do so by scheduling service at Momentum Volkswagen of Jersey Village in Houston, TX today.
