Keeping your vehicle running at its best requires regular maintenance and care. However, factors out of your control can also affect your vehicle’s overall performance. Understanding the effects of some of these factors, like the weather, will help you make sure you keep your vehicle at its best. At A1 Lubricants we can help you get to know how the weather can affect your vehicle’s performance and what to do about it.

The Effects of Extreme Temperature on Your Motor Oil


Extreme heat

Conventional oils and synthetic oils respond differently to extreme weather conditions. Extreme heat can cause conventional oils to evaporate and lose important additives in the process. Your vehicle’s oil consumption will be raised because of the faster evaporation rate. The heat will also change the viscosity of conventional oils. This can cause the oil to flow less fluidly through your engine. The sludge and buildup that results from this can cause more wear on your engine and can affect your vehicle’s overall performance.

Synthetic oils are more heat resistant and will retain their viscosity in extremely hot conditions. They won’t lose their fluidity and don’t evaporate at the same rate as conventional oils. Their ability to maintain their fluidity will cause less deposits in your engine. This means your vehicle’s engine will be cleaner and run more smoothly. Overall, synthetic oils create less pressure and wear on your engine which will help maintain your vehicle running smoother and more effectively.

Winter cold

Freezing winter temperatures can affect the fluidity of your motor oil. Conventional oils may get thicker as temperatures drop drastically. As your oil gets thicker, it will begin to move more slowly and may leave parts of your engine exposed and unprotected. This short period of exposure can be harmful and may cause wear on your engine. Synthetic oil retains its fluidity in colder temperatures, just like in extreme heat. Sub-zero temperatures won’t change their ability to flow through your vehicle’s engine properly. Your oil will continue to flow effectively which will help reduce wear on your engine. Your vehicle’s motor will be happy and healthy for longer.
