The main function of engine oil is to diminish metal-to-metal contact thereby reducing friction and wear. Heat is generated out of friction that again leads to high wear and damages the moving engine parts after a certain period. The oil also regulates the engine’s temperature. Engine Oil removes sludge throughout the engine. The engine will freeze up without oil.
