The numbers and letter on a bottle of motor oil can be confusing, but it is what determines its motor oil viscosity rating. For instance, if a motor oil has a viscosity rating of 5W-20, the 5W will tell you its viscosity rating in cold temperatures, and the number following the W will tell you its viscosity rating in hot temperatures. Viscosity is how much the oil resists flow.
