Besides fuel, oil is the lifeblood of your car. It keeps your engine rotating smoothly. Well, this is accomplished by the properties of oil that allow it to lubricate moving parts and reduce heat generated by friction. And if the moving parts in your engine weren’t lubricated, you would hear a lot of screeching noise followed by the car that doesn’t really want to go anywhere.

How does it all work? Jason from Engineering Explained is here to walk us through it all. The discussion above goes into a nitty-gritty related to how oil moves through the engine system.

We are talking about parts like pumps, filters, and rails used to shuffle fluids to and from the given space. In an engine, you’ll see the oil flowing from the oil sump through a pickup tube and on to the crank, pistons, and the valves.

From there, it falls into the oil pan only to begin the journey again. It’s the intriguing bit of engineering that Jason Fenske breaks down.

As his channel name implies, he explains the engineering behind all of this. Watch this video and you’ll walk away with a greater understanding of how your car works.
