Read Here to Lean About Motor Oil Viscosity Ratings

Although most automobile owners have their vehicle's motor oil changed on a routine basis, many do not know what motor oil viscosity ratings mean. If you want to learn about motor oil viscosity ratings, read our summary below.

A motor oil's thickness and how well it resists flow is determined by its viscosity rating. Motor oil viscosity ratings are identified by a number followed by a W. The number determines its viscosity at higher temperatures, and the W determines its viscosity at lower temperatures. A motor oil that has a higher viscosity rating will function better in hot temperatures as opposed to a motor oil with a low viscosity rating.

Schedule an appointment at our service center at Kia of Sussex when it is time to have your vehicle's motor oil changed. We will make certain the correct engine oil is used in your car.
