If you are in need of an oil change we are here to help! We
understand the different needs that you vehicle has including how the colder
weather can affect your engine and thereby the oil that is necessary. Your car’s
engine is considered to be the heart of the vehicle. The oil is considered the
necessary “blood” of the vehicle that must flow through the heart. While frigid
temperatures are not common in Torrance, you will still want to take necessary
precautions as the temperatures begin to shift. The colder temperatures cause oil to
flow more slowly or not at all in some cases placing extra stress on the engine.
Oil is measured by its viscosity levels. A greater viscosity creates a slower
flow of oil throughout the engine. If the viscosity is too great during cold
temperatures the engine will force the oil through the filter and cause pressure to
build. This can cause issues with the starter. Sealing rings, the split clamp, and
canister can all become damaged if the oil is too thick and is forced through the
engine. The easiest resolution is to use a thinner oil as it flows easier in colder
