The most obvious function of car engine oil is to lubricate, but car oil also protects against corrosion of engine components and cleans deposits and contaminants that can arise as by-products of combustion. Oil is also responsible for a large percentage of the cooling by circulating warmth more evenly thoughout the engine block.
A few common questions about oil answered:
What is a Car Engine Oil?
The primary function of an engine oil is to lubricate the internal components of your cars motor. However it also does a whole host of other tasks such as engine cooling, by more evenly distributing heat around; cleaning, using built in oil additive detergents; improved sealing, utilising the correct viscosity of the oil; corrosion inhibition, by using the oil's built in oil additive package.
Why do engine oil grades and specifications matter
Each vehicle's 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 engine was designed around (unless it is heavy performance modified).
