This particular property is known as viscosity. It is the physical measurement for how “thick” a liquid is. Motor oil in low temperatures could turn into something more like molasses, which could prevent it from properly coating the engine in a cold start. Conversely, as the heat rises, the oil becomes too thin. Motor oil uses the term weight to describe its viscosity
The good news is that motor oil has come a long way. You no longer really need to change your motor oil every season. That’s the good news. The other (more important) news is that your car won’t run smoothly forever without maintenance. That is what the A-Team is for.
