A vehicle engine must always have sufficient lubrication. The protective lubricating film reduces the mechanical friction of the moving components and prevents metal from making contact with metal. Without oil, the engine would suffer serious damage within seconds. The correct motor oil must be able to guarantee lubrication under all operating conditions and loads that occur in the engine. It should have the lowest possible viscosity in the extreme cold to facilitate starting and to reach all the important lubrication points in the engine as quickly as possible. At extremely high temperatures, on the other hand, the lubricating film must not rupture as this would destroy the engine.
At Liqui Moly, our top priority is to provide these motor oil that is able to cater for every type of operation condition to the people. We focuses on the 5 function of motor, which are:-
The motor oil’s most important task is the lubrication of the mechanical engine components. It is intended to reduce the friction between the moving components, thereby reducing wear to a minimum. The formation of a closed lubricating film is necessary to prevent engine damage due to metal-on-metal contact.
Motor oil contributes to the cooling of engine components. It ensures heat dissipation in the engine to prevent overheating.
Motor oil is also tasked with cleaning the engine. Combustion residues, metallic abraded material and deposits are picked up by the oil and transported to the oil filter.
Motor oil supports the sealing of the piston rings from the combustion chamber, thereby preventing pollutants from entering the engine.
The lubrication of all engine components ensures reliable engine running and thus a higher level of safety in traffic.
Even though motor oil does include additives, it is not enough to maintain the whole vehicle. Standard mineral motor oils, which no longer come close to meeting the requirements of today's motors, are up to only 15% additives. Modern oils, such as fully synthetic motor oils, can calculate up to 30%; which is still not enough.
Additives are special and unique supplements for the vehicles, it helps to prolong the engine lifespan while providing cleaning and corrosion protection, stable lubrication together with temperature resistance. It is very cost efficient too, because it can avoid many expensive repairs and prevents damage from happening.
You must be thinking, “How do additives fix and protect my vehicle?” For an easier explanation, we will separate it into 3 categories.
1) Fuel System
The fuel system is made up of the fuel tank, pump, filter, and injectors or carburetor, and is responsible for delivering fuel to the engine as needed to run. Each component must perform flawlessly to achieve expected vehicle performance and reliability. However over time, an engine’s performance can slowly diminish because of deposits or corrosion, which clogs the mentioned parts of the fuel system and causes reduced power or damage.
When any part of the fuel system compartments starts to deteriorate, the symptoms are quite often the same. So it can be quite difficult to pinpoint which area is affected and which is not. However a few key points to take note of when it happens.
It is most likely the Fuel Injectors are filled with deposits or it has cracks. One of the most common symptoms of faulty Fuel Injectors is an extremely violent or rough engine idle. If fuel is not properly provided to the engine cylinder, it will result in a choppy engine, when the car is idle.
Dirty Fuel Injector
Difficulty of starting the engine
One of the first symptoms of a faulty Intake Valve is the difficulty of starting the engine. If the unit malfunctions, it may not position the valves correctly, which can lead to difficulty starting the engine. It may require more cranks than normal to start, or may require multiple turns of the key. Which could be really frustrating, when you’re late for work.
Faulty Intake Valve
High Fuel Consumption
This symptom can indicate any part of the fuel system is worn out or damaged. It could be the Fuel injector has a crack and it’s leaking. A clogged catalytic converter could be a cause too as it will lead the exhaust to be trapped in the car's engine. Or multiple parts are faulty and causes misfire which will raise the engine overheating and pre-igniting the fuel mixture, leaking to high fuel consumption. And the list goes on.
There are many other symptoms of a faulty part of the fuel system, but the ones mentioned are the most common and clear sign to get your car checked!
Clogged Catalytic Converter
But prevention is better than cure, with the proper additives these issues won’t be any hassle for your daily life. Once these symptoms start to show up, immediately use these additives to avoid it from getting worse.
These Liqui Moly Additives will clean and prevent new deposits from reforming.
Injection Cleaner (Petrol Engine) - Will clean out the injection valves, intake valves, spark plugs and in the combustion chamber from any form of deposits, also prevents it from reforming. It will create a protective layer in the entire fuel system from corrosion so that it won’t crack and cause fuel leakage.
Valve Cleaner (Petrol Engine) - Removes deposits on valves, in the combustion chamber and prevents renewed formation.
Catalytic System Cleaner (Petrol Engine) - Removing typical contamination and deposits found in the intake and combustion system. This additive high cleaning effect ensures a clean catalytic converter and reduces the exhaust emissions.
Diesel Purge (Diesel Engine) - Remove deposits on the injection nozzles and in the combustion chamber. Assist to protect the entire fuel system from corrosion so crack won’t form and cause fuel leakage.
Super Diesel Additive (Diesel Engine) - Removes deposits in the diesel injection system and in the combustion chamber and prevents them from renewed formation. Maintains all components in the diesel injection system. Prevents jet needles from fusing and gumming.
The engine is the heart of your car. It is a complex machine built to convert heat from burning gas into the force that turns the road wheels. The chain of reactions which achieve that objective is set in motion by a spark, which ignites a mixture of fuel vapour and compressed air inside a momentarily sealed cylinder and causes it to burn rapidly. That is why the machine is called an internal combustion engine. As the mixture burns it expands, providing power to drive the car.
Due to the heavy workforce the engine needs to keep the car running, it is really important that the engine has sufficient lubrication so that it doesn’t overheat and be damaged by friction. The symptoms of a deteriorated engine are similar to a faulty Fuel System compartment. High Fuel Consumption, difficulty of starting the engine and etc…
It is very dangerous when an engine doesn’t have sufficient lubricate as parts in the engine won't have any protection when it rubs each other. Not only will this cause noises, decreased fuel economy, and damage, but the friction created by the metal to metal contact can raise the temperature in the system and cause the engine to overheat.
It can also break the rods, which will give off the knocking sound from underneath the hood of the vehicle. Without proper treatment, the powertrain can seize and break down completely.
To have a peace of mind when on the road, it’s always good to ensure the engine is at it’s top condition to avoid such mishap to happen. With Liqui Moly Additives, it will provide that peace of mind.
These Liqui Moly Additives help with cleaning the engine compartment.
Engine Flush Plus - This additive will clean out all types of deposits from the engine interior during an oil change. It will ensure good performance while still providing the protection needed against wear and prolong engine service life.
Oil Smoke Stop - Reduces oil consumption via the piston rings and valve guides. It prevents black smoke and oil mist from forming while it acts against the loss in viscosity in motor oils. It will increase the compression ratio and reduce engine noise. Also gives extra protection in the engines with high levels of wear.
Hydraulic Lifter Additive - An additive that cleans and lubricates the holes and ducts in the oil circuit. It will prevent hydro tappet noise and secures its performance, while increasing the reliability and travel comfort of the vehicle.
These Additive helps with Lubrication and High Temperature

Cera Tec - A high-tech protection which reduces friction and wear by using chemically and thermally extremely high-resilient ceramic compounds.It will prevent direct metal/metal contact, it will increase the service life of the engine. Also provides a smooth-running effect that reduces fuel consumption in gasoline and diesel engines.
A vehicle has many other issues that are not entirely due to the fuel system or the engine. It could be a leaking radiator or loosed seal.
There could be many causes that lead to a leaking radiator and the most common cause is corrosion in the radiator. Radiators, hoses, and hose connections collect sediment and rust that over time can punch holes in the radiator. The engine operates at extremely high temperatures which is why a radiator is necessary in order to keep the engine from overheating and failing.
A Loose seal will lead to the engine losing oil or consumption is high. It is important to take notice as mentioned, when an engine doesn’t have sufficient oil to lubricate it will lead to expensive repairs or even mishap on the road.
With Liqui Moly additives, these issues all can be avoidable.
Additive that helps with Radiator
Radiator Stop Leak - Will completely seal off leaks immediately with ease. When the radiator leaks has been sealed off, It will secure the combustion chamber from damages caused by coolant leakage.
Loosed Radiator Seal Cap
Radiator Cleaner - Deposits in the cooling/heating system form barriers against heat exchange, blocking the thermostat and regulating mechanisms. Engine temperatures that are too high cause the engine to run uneconomically with increased wear and with a high risk of damage. After using this additive, it will guarantee a better cooling system and prolong radiator service life.
Liqui Moly additives for petrol and diesel will keep the entire fuel system clean and guarantee optimum combustion and compression.
All of our additives have a common benefit: They help to clean and care for the entire motor and fuel system. And help increase the lifespan of the motor and reduce fuel consumption.
