Repair MacBook Pro cooling fan rattling
Authored by: theosib on Feb 14, '11 11:12:53AM

A friend of mine mentioned that a vegetable oil would not be a good idea. It's biodegradable. You really need to use a mineral oil. IIRC, sewing machine oil will be the best since it's the most clingy (don't quote me on this). I used a fully synthetic motor oil, which should be good, but a more viscous oil would be even better. Take this comment as a suggestion to do some research on what kind of oil to use before doing something like this.
