Shell Helix is at the cutting edge of technology.  Its Active Cleansing Technology (ACT) is formulated to clean as it protects the engine, helping to prevent the build-up of dirt and aiming for a smoother, more responsive drive.

Shell Helix is designed to improve performance in three key ways: it helps to keep your car engine clean, minimise friction and combat wear.  Discover what motor oil does and why using the right one is such and important part of car maintenance.

How Car Motor Engine Oil Works

The main function of motor engine oils is to lubricate the car engine parts so they run smoothly and stay protected against wear and tear, for better performance.

Normal mineral oils can allow dirt particles to stick together and form sludge on engine surfaces. This can prevent proper lubrication and could lead to premature engine failure. Shell Helix oil's active cleansing agents are designed to prevent dirt particles sticking together to form sludge. For example, Shell Helix Ultra removes up to five times as much sludge compared with a normal mineral oil (API SG/CD).

Why the right oil matters

Whether you’re looking for better performance from your car or improved reliability in your truck, it’s essential that you get your oil right.

Using the correct oil keeps your engine running smoothly. Primarily, oil stops the metal surfaces in your engine from grinding together and wearing, by creating a separating oil film between them. The oil also disperses heat and reduces wear, protecting the engine.

On top of this, good oil prevents dirt build-up and deposits by keeping them in suspension. Motor oil even protects against sludge and fights oxidation, keeping the oil fresh and minimising acids which can cause corrosion
