Engine Oil performs the following functions in an engine:

  1. Lubricates moving parts within the engine by producing a protective layer that allows movement.
  2. Helps cool the engine by transferring excess heat from the combustion area.
  3. Helps maintain clean engine parts thus free from harmful deposits such as 'sludge' by suspending contaminants and eliminating corrosive acids.
