    Frequently Asked Questions

    1What is the purpose of engine Oil
     
    Engine oil reduces friction and wears by creating a thin layer shaped like film by sticking on all moving components of the engine; this means more power is transferred to the wheels by ensuring easy movement. Engine oil helps to clean the engine by means of detergents it contains, protects it against rust, and also helps to send a portion of the over-heating circulating around the cylinders down to crankcase.
     
    2Why is engine oil so important?
     
    Engine oil is just like the blood circulating in the veins for your vehicle’s engine. Therefore, wrong engine oil choice may cause some undesirable problems such as wear, corrosion, and sediment formation. With recommended grade oil you can prevent problems that may occur in your engine. This will contribute to lower fuel consumption, less friction and longevity of engines and parts.
    3How often should I change my Engine Oil?
     
    You should change your engine oil and oil filter within the change intervals that have been specified by the vehicle manufacturers. These intervals are determined by vehicle manufacturers and not by oil producers and indicated by mileage or duration. Engine oil manufacturers produce engine oils that comply with these change intervals and oversupply the requirements of vehicle manufacturers and this helps to get maximum performance from the engine.
     
    4Engine oils are wide-ranging and how do I know that I will choose which one?

     

    Automobile manufacturers have specified the properties of the oil required to be used in manuals in detail. However, you can always change to another engine oil, having better properties, and get even more performance from your engine. Choosing the right engine oil for your vehicle and you depends on the following issues:

    • Automobile Type – a high performance automobile needs higher performance oil.
    • Automobile Age – expectations from new generation engines are very high: fuel efficiency, environmental awareness, and high protection. New generation oils have been developed to keep up with expectations.
    • Your driving conditions – intense stop-and-go traffic requires higher performance oils to prevent engine wear.

    Lubriline offers the most appropriate products for you according to the brand and model of your vehicle.

    5What is Synthetic Oil?

     

    Synthetic Oil are produced by means of adding the necessary additive packages into synthetic base oils obtained by various chemical processes in laboratory conditions. The cost of synthetic base oil, which is the raw material of synthetic oils, is high since they are produced by intense processing with advanced technology. However, they ensure both a better performance and long term use. Their thermal resistance is high. They fulfill their lubricating duties longer periods, and are more resistant to high pressure and strain with higher and lower temperatures.
