Engine oils

We all know that engine oils play an important role in the smooth running of our engines and here we explain more.

Engine oils play an important role

For many reasons, engine oils play an important role and we should consider the oil as the vehicle's life blood. The oils will help lubricate the vehicle's moving parts to ensure that your car or van functions as it should do and has a prolonged lifespan. Failure to use the correct oils may lead to friction issues and the engine malfunctioning and this could be an expensive mistake to rectify. You will need to keep an eye on oil levels and these should be checked regularly since the oil will keep the engine working correctly. Though it will, over time, collect debris and dirt which means it will become less efficient. Manufacturers may recommend that engine oil is changed every 5,000 miles to ensure everything works smoothly. For those who are driving in a variety of conditions or racking up excessive miles, then it may be worth changing your engine oil every 3,000 miles.

Issues with engine oils

One of the issues with engine oils is selecting the right one. And while there are lots of brands and manufacturers you also need to understand whether you need synthetic or semi-synthetic engine oil. Your owner manual will tell you what type of oil is necessary and how often it needs to be changed - it's not just about the smooth running of the engine since having effective engine oil also boosts the vehicles economy and will help with emissions.

Choosing the correct engine oils

When it comes to choosing the correct engine oils, you need to appreciate that the engine itself is a complex piece of machinery that is operating under a range of temperatures - usually very high temperatures. The engine oil protects these moving parts and lubricates them to help prevent wear and tear as well as corrosion. Engine oils have a rating system so, for example, 5W-30 engine oil indicates that the 5 is the viscosity rating for when the weather is cold and the W indicates winter. The number 30 is the viscosity rating for the engine's operating temperature, usually around 100c. When the engine oils heat up, multi-grade engine oils will thin less at these high temperatures and will maintain a constant oil pressure more easily. Also, while engine oils will vary between manufacturers, it is usually mostly made with base oil with some additives that will help maintain its viscosity when operating at high temperatures. Usually, conventional oil is used in engine oil, but when synthetic engine oils are chosen, then it's gone through an extra chemical engineering process to give the oil better properties.
