Motor Oil Viscosity - Don't Underestimate its Purpose

Motor oil is as important to your vehicle as the motor because without motor oil, the motor wouldn’t run. When adding motor oil, it’s extremely important to get the type with the right viscosity for your vehicle. Stop in at Barbee’s Freeway Ford Inc. and check out our huge selection of motor oil. We guarantee we’ll get you the exact type your vehicle needs.

Viscosity determines how fast or slow the motor oil resists flow or runs through the motor. Different temperatures require different viscosity. In a 10W-30 motor oil, the 10 represents the viscosity at a low temperature and the 30 represents viscosity when the engine is hot. Cold temperatures require low viscosities and hot temperatures require higher viscosities.

If your vehicle is in need of an oil change or you just want to make sure you’re getting the correct motor oil, pay our service center a visit in Denver.
