To function correctly, every engine requires oil. Oil is, without a doubt, a necessary component of every engine. Motor oil, whether synthetic, semi-synthetic or mineral, serves a variety of purposes. What are its objectives and advantages?

What is the purpose of engine oil?

Engine oil serves a variety of functions in the correct operation of an engine throughout time. The following are the most important:

  • Lubrication

Engine oil’s primary function is to lubricate engine components that are constantly in contact with one another. As a result, friction is reduced, which minimises engine wear and tear.

  • Cooling

The engine’s temperature rises owing to friction between mechanical parts, and energy is lost through combustion. Some lubrication is provided by the engine oil, which assists in heat dissipation through the lubrication circuit. It operates in tandem with the coolant, which cools just certain parts of the engine.


  • Cleaning

Despite its lesser-known status, engine oil’s cleaning capacity is critical. Microscopic deposits build up in the engine and remain suspended. They may contain dust or combustion residue. If it weren’t for the engine oil, the residue would clog the engine and impair its performance. The flow of engine oil transports these impurities to the oil filter, where they are trapped.


  • Protection against rusting

Fuel combustion generates corrosive acid, which can corrode metal components in engines. Chemicals added to modern engine lubricants help to postpone corrosion. Engine oil, on the other hand, may oxidise with time and when exposed to oxygen, losing its corrosion-preventative characteristics. As a result, it is necessary to replenish engine oil on a regular basis.

  • Sealing

Engine oil also aids in improved engine sealing, notably piston and cylinder sealing. A protective coating is applied between the various sections, covering any gaps that may emerge.

It’s helpful to know.

For engine oil to completely accomplish all of its purposes, the amount of oil must be checked often in order to change the oil at the right time. Excessively used oil has lost its efficacy, putting the engine and its components at risk.


What are the most important advantages of engine oil?

Engine oil saves money for car owners by preventing costly repairs. The engine would swiftly suffer major damage if it didn’t have any lube. In a nutshell, this is what a good engine oil provides.

  • Extends the life of the engine

Engine oil keeps the engine from clogging and getting damaged by minimising friction between components and cleaning the whole engine. Mechanical parts have a longer lifespan and are less likely to corrode. As a result, the engine runs better and has a longer lifespan.

  • Ensures that the engine runs smoothly.

A well-oiled engine performs better. To avoid major mechanical damage, proper lubrication is important. The cost of maintenance is also influenced, in addition to engine performance.

  • Reduces CO2 emissions and fuel consumption.

When an engine oil is overused or has a low level, friction occurs, reducing the engine’s energy efficiency and increasing fuel consumption. In addition, a high-performance oil decreases harmful emissions into the atmosphere.


To get the most out of your engine, use the correct oil.

Engine oils aren’t all created equal. To get the most out of your oil, be sure it’s right for your vehicle and the weather where you live. There are three different kinds of oil:

  • Mineral motor oils
  • Engine oils that are semi-synthetic
  • Engine oils made from synthetic materials

In addition to the kind of oil, there are other factors to consider, such as viscosity, which is represented in two classes on the oil bottle (for example, “5w30”): cold and hot grades. These grades represent the fluidity of oil as a function of temperature (high or low). The oil should be more or less fluid or viscous depending on the engine architecture. To choose the right oil, see your vehicle owner’s handbook or get advice from a professional.
