There are some regulations for specific engine on choosing the engine oil. The manufacturers of car company have listed type and viscosity of engine oil that can be used by the user to their engine. The manufacturer have stated that certain viscosity and type of engine oil only suitable for their engine to long lasting life of engine and give high performance to the engine. In this study the characteristics and effects of viscosity to the engine performance to justify the manufacturers claim will be studied. This study focused on the effect of the engine oil to the engine performance. There are 3 types of engine oil that were being tested in this project, which are mineral based oil, semi-synthetic oil, and fully synthetic oil. All these engine oil have their own viscosity to differentiate between each other. The engine being used for this test is 1.3 L Campro engine and the equipment used are Exhaust Gas Analyzer and LAUNCH X431 Scanner Tool. The method chosen for this project is that the engine oil must be run at different rpm, which is at 800 RPM for idle speed and 3000 RPM for top speed. The test will be justified based on the gas emission release from the exhaust and relate it to the engine performance. The data from the scanner tool also being analysed to relate with the engine performance.
