Do You Know The Viscosity Rating of Your Current Motor Oil?

Ask many drivers what the viscosity rating of their current motor oil is and you're likely to get a blank stare. Our service technicians at Momentum Volkswagen of Clear Lake in Houston, TX suggest you take a look at the numbers on your preferred brand of motor oil.

A 10W-30 motor oil means that the oil's viscosity, or rate at which it flows due to its thickness, means the oil has a 10W viscosity when the engine is cold, and 30 when the engine has been running and reaches a high temperature. A low viscosity rating is better for cold weather to provide a thinner motor oil, while hot weather demands a more slow moving or thicker motor oil in order to properly lubricated your engine.

Ask your Momentum Volkswagen of Clear Lake service department about the benefits of using a multi-grade motor oil. It can help maintain the balance between low and high viscosity required by most vehicles.
