Automobile Engine Motor Oil Frequently Asked Questions
The engine oil in your car or truck is one of the key components that keeps it running each time you turn that key. To learn a bit more about engine oil and how to care for it, consider the following frequently asked questions:

Why is it important to change engine oil?
There are two primary reasons to change your engine oil as instructed by your automobile manual. The first is that the oil, which serves as a lubricant, can get dirty. The dirt particles that become suspended in the oil decrease its ability to protect your engine's performance and parts. Additionally, engine oil will start to break down over time. As the engine oil is cycled through your car or truck's engine, the oil additives begin to weaken. This, in turn, weakens the ability of the oil to coat and protect.

Why are there so many different ratings of engine oil?
You may notice, at your next oil change, that your car takes 10W-30, but your neighbor's car takes 5W-40. Engine oil is rated according to the SAE, or Society of Automotive Engineers, based on its viscosity. Viscosity is the oil's general thickness and fluidity based on tension within the lubricant. The numbers you see on a carton of motor oil identify the oil's viscosity rating, any additives, and cold or warm start factors.

Are synthetic oils better for my automobile's engine?
This will depend on the make and model of your vehicle. Your owner's manual will identify the rating of oil that will enable your car to best perform. It should also indicate whether synthetic oils are acceptable.
