Motor Oil Viscosity - Know Your Car's Numbers

As important as it is to change the oil regularly on your vehicle, it’s equally important to use the oil that has the right viscosity for your car or truck. At Audi Stevens Creek, we have a large selection of motor oils and will be happy to service your vehicle or advise you accordingly.

What your vehicle needs in motor depends on your vehicle, how it’s use and in what temperatures the vehicle will be driven. Viscosity means the thickness of the motor oil and how quickly it moves through the car. In a 5W-30 oil, the 5 designates the viscosity in low temperatures while the 30 designates the viscosity in cold temperatures.

It’s important that your motor oil matches external temperature. If you have questions or are in need of an oil change, stop in at our San Jose shop and we’ll take care of you.
