greased, oiled, lubricated


Explanation:
The above based on Simon & Shuster
It all depends on the context.
As per Webster's Collegiate 10th Ed.:
Greased is more literal. Grease=1- to smear or dub with grease 2- to lubricate with grease
Oiled = lubricated, treated or covered with or as if with oil (oiled paprer)
Lubricate = 1-to make smooth or slippery, 2- to apply a lubricant to ; vi: to act as a lubricant

Good luck
