Engine Oil performs the following functions in an engine:
- Lubricates moving parts within the engine by producing a protective layer that allows movement.
- Helps cool the engine by transferring excess heat from the combustion area.
- Helps maintain clean engine parts thus free from harmful deposits such as 'sludge' by suspending contaminants and eliminating corrosive acids.
- Prevent wear by making a chemical bond that prevents metal-to-metal contact.
- Creates a seal between the engine piston rings and cylinder walls to prevent blow-by and loss of power.
