What is engine oil?
Its a lubricant used in internal combustion engines, which power your cars, and many other machines.
In engines, there are parts which move against each other, and the friction wastes useful power by converting the kinetic energy to heat.?
Engine oils create a film between moving parts to protect your engine against corrosion and keeps it cool while in use.
