Scotty Posted January 23, 2005 Report Share Posted January 23, 2005 I was reading an article the other day about struts. They stated that struts take a beating in the winter due to the cold weather. I was wondering if because of the shrinkage effect of cold on mechanical parts whether or not cold weather tended to accelerate bearing, ring or cylinder wear? Do you think that cars that are maintained at room temp fare better in terms of engine wear? Anyone have any thoughts on this? I dropped to 5W30 today from 10W30 as my engine seems to struggle until it warms up in sub 20 degree weather, this is the first time I have ever done this, but my manual is clear on changing to 5W30... see below, Mike Early on sailors navigated by the stars at night and the North star became the symbol for finding ones way home. Once you know where the Northstar is you can point your ship in the right direction to get home. So the star became a symbol for finding ones way home or more symbolically even finding ones path in life. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
