Lubrication system

The lubrication system distributes and circulates engine oil to all areas of the engine to ensure smooth engine operation. During engine operation, all parts subject to friction are lubricated to form an oil film that minimizes direct metal wear.
The purpose of lubrication is to circulate lubricant to all parts subject to wear, cool some of the heat generated by frictional heat and combustion using oil, and wash away fine metal powder generated due to wear using oil. Lubrication systems come in three types depending on their lubrication method: "splash lubricating systems," "force-feed systems," and "combination splash force-feed systems."
