    Don't let it insulate your engine

    Yes, your engine and the car will end up coated to some degree in oil and other residue. That is the result of a total loss oil system that these tiny two stroke motors employ. All you can do is wipe off the mess and try to keep everything clean.

    What danny was probably referring to is that if you leave a coating of oil on your motor it will tend to retain heat. Just clean off the motor with paper towels of a rag. WD40 works well for diluting oils but it can be a messy process.
