Oil is also responsible for a large percentage of the cooling by circulating warmth more evenly though out the engine block.

Why do engine oil grades and specifications matter
vehicles motor is produced and designed around a certain engine oil
grade / viscosity plus a very specific specification. Spec's are very
varied to cope with the vastly different strains and stresses vehicle
motors have to cope with (cc size, DPF, diesel & petrol to name just
a few). Therefore to maintain your engine efficiency, life span and
performance you should always stick with oil your motor was designed
around (unless it is heavy performance modified).
