Actually, you can use normal motor oil or even cooking oil (like canola oil) when soldering aluminum. As was pointed out above the problem is that aluminum oxidizes within microseconds of exposure to the air and you want to keep this from happening. You need to immerse the aluminum in the oil and then clean it with a wire brush or something similar. Some people just keep brushing the aluminum with the soldering iron (or gun) tip while applying the solder. Of course, you MUST keep the aluminum, the soldering iron tip, and the solder within the layer of oil.
Now there is available solder with a special flux that can be used to solder aluminum. However, this is not always available. But, virtually everyone has some sort of suitable oil "handy" and that makes soldering aluminum relatively easy.
I remember that I have read someone has succeeded in soldering aluminium under oil bath.
