Summary

Engine oil lubricates, cools, cleans, and seals engine components. While engine oil is a vital component to the longevity of an engine and may seem extremely complex, it is not very difficult to service. When purchasing oil look for the SAE, API, and other ratings that meet the manufacturer’s recommended requirements. Oil filters are used to remove contaminants from the engine oil and should be changed at oil change intervals. Synthetic oils are becoming more popular and accepted due to stringent engine tolerances. Always check your owner’s manual for oil recommendations and change intervals.
