When you walk into an auto parts store and see the vast selection of engine oils available, it’s clear that not all oils are the same. Have you ever considered why oil manufacturers list multiple oils for a particular engine? Or why a specific option is advised above all other alternatives? How do you determine which oil to select and why?
Engine oil plays a vital role in keeping the engine correctly lubricated and operating to its optimum. Selecting an engine oil at random, without proper thought and research into the type of oil that is suited for that specific engine, can cause severe damage or premature wear of the internal engine.
In the latest addition to our Engine Oil Essentials training course, we explore why you should and shouldn’t select certain oils for specific engines, covering topics such as:
- The requirements of engine oil during engine operation
- Engine oil ratings and specifications
- Engine oil additives
- Differences in engine oil types and how to select the correct oil
It’s vital that technicians have the skills and knowledge required to ensure the correct oil is selected to meet the requirements of an engine.
