To Change or not to Change. That is the Question.

For years it has been a belief that a car’s oil needs to be changed automatically when the weather gets hotter. Motor oil is the lifeblood of your car. It must be allowed to flow freely over all the moving parts of your engine. Traditionally, the temperature of the oil changed how easily it flowed through the engine.

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.
