Despite what you might think, the cold weather can cause serious engine damage. Learn how you can protect your engine from the cold weather with AMSOIL's Signature Series 0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil.

Don't Let Cold Weather Get the Best of Your Car

Have you ever been stuck on a freeway, crawling along while you watch turtles overtake you? Have you ever got to the slow point where you realized that it wasn’t a car accident, it was an overheated engine? If you have, then you know all about the effects of an overheated engine. After all, we are all taught to keep the temperatures down while driving. But have you ever wondered if the cold weather has any effect on your engine? While the effects may not be as dramatic as an overheated engine, there is potential for damage and wear to occur inside your engine. To give you a better understanding, along with information on how you can protect your engine, Jim Ackney has some information below to help.

What Happens When Your Engine Is Running?

There is no denying that an engine which is too hot is going to cause problems. However, it is only a problem when your engine reaches extreme temperatures. Until then, your engine is happy to hum along at temperatures which are hot to you, but not so much to your engine. If you are using a conventional oil, these regular operating temperatures are prime for it to melt into a consistency thin enough to reach intricate spaces within your engine and its moving parts. When this occurs, each engine part and process is protected by a thin film, which lubricates each part interaction and limits friction. However, conventional oil can only do its job while your engine is running. When your engine is operating, the temperatures are ideal for warming up conventional oil. Click here to protect your engine from bad starts by ordering AMSOIL’s Signature Series 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil. Designed to maintain its consistency during cold temperatures, high-quality AMSOIL products like this can help to reduce engine wear caused by cold starts.

What Happens When Your Engine Is Switched off, and Temperatures Dip?

When you finally make it home after an exhausting day, your car is more than happy to take a rest with you. However, while you relax in the warmth of your home, your car and its engine are stuck outside, where the temperatures can start to get low, even during the day! For an engine that’s running conventional oil, the cold weather can cause the fluid to become thick. When this happens, the oil starts to retract from the intricate spaces mentioned earlier, leaving them exposed until your engine has had enough time to warm up the oil, once more. Until the oil does warm up, however, metal parts inside your engine are clanging and scraping against each other, all in the name of getting you to work. As you can imagine, this can start to cause some serious damage over a short amount of time, given that it likely happens each morning you leave for work.

How Can You Protect Your Engine From Bad Starts?

The easiest way to give your car a good start in the morning is a simple synthetic oil change using a high-quality synthetic oil, like AMSOIL’s Signature Series 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil. Products like these include purpose-designed additives which resist the effects of cold weather. This means that as the temperatures drop, AMSOIL’s Signature Series 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil maintains its consistency and stays where it’s needed the most! For a motorist such as yourself, this means smoother starts in the morning and a reduction in engine wear, engine damage, and trips to see your mechanic.
