The lubricant helps to decrease the effects of friction between the moving parts. Consequently, they wear out more slowly and do not heat up. The oil reduces friction, which improves the performance of the engine and reduces its fuel consumption as well.

Do you know what is brake fluid or what is it for? In hydraulic brake systems, brake fluid transmits the force of your foot on the pedal to the brakes. Brake fluid is one of the most significant fluids in a car: It connects the mechanical action of your brake pedal with the brake linings that creates friction to slow your vehicle speed.
How to change brake fluid
Oil consumption depends on engine power output and fuel consumption. Your engine will consume more oil when you are driving a sportier car or faster or with a trailer to transport heavy objects. Whenever you find out that your vehicle is consuming more oil than before under the same conditions of use, you need to search why this is happening.
