Winter weather can be hard on vehicles in areas that have a defined winter cold season. Oil must flow from the very first crank to protect engine parts. For cold weather starts, the numbers in the oil viscosity rating are important.

The first numbers are usually 5W, 10W, 20W, or 30W. The W stands for winter, and these numbers show that the oil's rating for cold weather. The lower numbers go with low temperatures. The best rating for cold weather would be 0W. The following SAE numbers, usually 10, 20, 30, or 40 represent the weight of the oil. The higher numbers describe the heavier oils.
