The article discusses the process of gelation of engine oils and its influence on exploitative properties. The results of research on the propensity of engine oils for gelation at low and high temperatures are presented. The influence of various factors such as: base oil, vegetable oil, FAME and soot on the gelling process was determined. It was found that the cause of gelation of oils, depending on the operating conditions, oil components, may be several factors independent of each other. These factors are discussed in the article.
