What Does SAE Stand For In Motor Oil?

Have you ever wondered what SAE stands for in motor oil? The actual meaning of SAE is not entirely important when choosing motor oil for your engine. However, the SAE ratings deserve more attention.

SAE Is A Rating System For Measuring Motor Oil Viscosity

Yes, that’s right. The Society of Automotive Engineers or SAE developed a scale to compare motor oil viscosity grades for engines and transmissions. 

The SAE was founded in 1905 and is a globally active association for engineering professionals in a multitude of industries. This includes automotive, commercial vehicles, and aerospace applications. The goal of the SAE is to develop engineering standards and solve technical design problems as gasoline-powered vehicles became mainstream in the early 1900s.

Importance Of Detailing Your Car

You might have the preconceived notion that car detailing is all about racing stripes and other bright decals and vinyl. When in reality car detailing just means a thorough cleaning of your vehicle from the inside out. When you go to get your car detailed you can choose to have them focus solely on the interior, exterior, or both. You can also choose the level of detailing that you want from a quick wax and shine to a more extensive detailing which includes buffing out scratches and other exterior blemishes.

While buffing out blemishes is a bonus at the very least we recommend a basic exterior detailing. This normally includes everything from a wash to applying a sealant. Detailers normally start with a high-powered wash immediately followed by handwashing with a mild soap. The exterior wash is extremely important since it will remove all of the debris from your car you accumulate from daily driving. Some debris like road salt is abrasive and can cause damage over time. When road salt is left to its own devices it will start to break down the protective barrier on your vehicle and eventually cause paint damage and even rust. Corrosive materials that end build up on your vehicle over time is the biggest reason we recommend getting your vehicle detailed every so often.
