Motor oil plays an important role in maintaining engine performance. It reduces parts wear by limiting friction, protecting against corrosion, cleaning the motor, and preserving the air-tightness of your engine. So how do you choose the right oil for your car?
The first step is to check your owner's manual to see what oil viscosity grade to use as well as the manufacturer's standards and specifications. Then, depending on your driving style, car mileage, and oil change frequency, choose the corresponding grade.
