Mechanics Freeze an Engine and Fire It Up to See How Oil Behaves

It is incredibly interesting how much a transparent oil tank can reveal.

Not a day goes by without the mechanics at Garage 54 answering a question you never thought of before. Their projects seem to start with simple questions, and in today's example, they are answering how oil behaves when you freeze a car's engine and fire it up afterward.

In a previous video, they made a transparent rocker cover and sump to look inside a working engine. After getting comments that suggested looking at how oil behaves in extremely low conditions with this transparent build, they decided to experiment with just that simply because they are also curious. 

After slightly modifying their transparent engine covers, they filmed this video where they freeze the engine and see how the oil behaved. It would also be interesting to see this experiment done with different oil types. If you're interested in seeing more of Garage 54, make sure you watch this one where they turn a regular car into an upside-down that you can actually drive around.
