Automotive Lubricants and Testing provides a comprehensive overview of various lubrication aspects of a typical powertrain system, including the engine, transmission, driveline, and other components. It also covers lubrication fundamentals and lubricant testing methods that are influenced by lubricant additive formulation and engine hardware changes.

This handbook contains 26 chapters covering the powertrain, transmission, chassis, and drivetrain systems. In addition, the advanced lubrication and tribochemistry of powertrain systems have been included, such as diesel fuel lubrication, specialized automotive lubricant testing development, and biodegradable automotive lubricants.

Automotive Lubricants and Testing also covers the major test methods for typical engine components (gasoline and diesel), engine oil characteristics, engine material evaluations, and the current industrial standard test methods for chassis and drivetrain systems.

Excerpt: Controlling Contaminants: Acids and Deposits. Another form of contamination control is performed by metallic detergents. Detergents are capable of controlling contaminants such as acids, produced on combustion, by neutralization so that these acidic materials do not cause rust in the engine. Detergents are also able to control contamination by the formation of micelles, which are capable of solubilizing one unit of liquid deposit precursor for each unit of additive present. Second, they peptize solids of the size range 0-10 nm. They are also capable of forming films around deposit particle precursors to which they are physically adsorbed.
