While coffee might get your going in the morning, it isn't as simple for your vehicle. This post has some tips to help your car's cold starts. If you think that you are the only one who doesn't enjoy cold starts in the morning, think again! Just because it can't express its need for coffee doesn't mean that your car doesn't need a bit of help in the morning.

What Does Warming up Your Car in the Morning Actually Do?

However, despite what you may have been told about letting your car 'warm up' before you drive it, what it really needs in the morning isn't a little run-time, it's a synthetic oil change. To learn more, ProSource Oil has some information below about how the change in temperature can affect your engine performance and cold-morning starts. The first place to start is with a basic understanding of how your car works. And we mean basic. Inside your engine is a number of metal parts, both large and small. When you turn your key to start your car, each of these parts immediately leaps into action. For some parts, this means simply turning or opening and closing. For others, it means grinding and sliding up against other parts in order to fulfill their function and keep your engine going. No matter what the job is, each part performs its task under high pressure and high temperatures. As you can imagine, clanging and grinding metal parts together under these conditions isn’t going to end well. And you would be right. It results in nothing short of a lot of friction and a lot of damage. In fact, if left to just operate as is, your engine wouldn’t last too long at all. In order to work, your engine utilizes something which you’re likely familiar with. It’s your engine oil, or you may know it as engine lubricant or simply just motor oil. Whatever you call it, it performs one very important task - lubricate each interaction. When you top-up your oil or perform a synthetic oil change, fresh oil makes its way through your engine, into the intricate spaces between each of the individual parts. As it does this, it coats each part with a very thin, but very strong layer of film. With this barrier in place, as each of the above-mentioned parts begins to operate, instead of grinding against its fellow parts, the interaction is smooth. So, instead of metal grinding against metal, it’s slippery metal sliding against slippery metal. Remember, basic understanding.

Now, What Does the Change in Weather Have to Do With Your Oil?

As great as the benefits of engine oil are, low-quality oil or traditional motor oils can easily be affected by cold weather, even if the temperatures aren't extreme. For example, revisit the example above where the oil finds its way into the smallest of spaces between each engine part. Now, as the temperature cools down, like what happens overnight, low-quality or conventional oil is affected and begins to not only thicken but actually retract from all of the spaces it once thoroughly protected. Without this comprehensive layer of protection, your engine is susceptible to the very damage which your engine oil is supposed to be preventing. This means that if your oil isn’t providing protection from the moment you turn your ignition, warming up your car could be causing your serious damage. Sorry to say, but the lesson your learned growing up has become outdated and could be causing your engine damage in your attempts to prepare it for the cold drive ahead.
