Exclamation luca heavy duty oil stableiser

has any one heard of this stuff
my car was a bit tappety it gets regular oil changes and usuall use 10 40 valvoline synthetic
anyway went into the loca factors and was talking to the guy he said this stuff is great for engines over 100,000 it restores pressure reduces wear and coats tappets etc 10 per bottle
so took a chance
puts about just over a 1/4 in its dead thick and i must say the tappets noise is going away the car semms more responsive etc apparently you can add it to gear boxes and diffs might give it a try
just htought i mention it if anybody knows any other probems let me know and ill change my oil
if anyone wants some pm me and ill pick some up for you should be about 13 all in inc p&P

What pressure is it supposed to restore fella.. Oil pressure?? should imagine if that is the case then it is thicker which will increase oil pressure that way..

Re: luca heavy duty oil stableiser

well it has all the usual additives in it it actually binds to the oil lowering the over all temperature but in increaces viscosity thrfore lowering friction it binds to the heavily worn parts at a atomic level suppose its like adding molyslip or winns and using 15 50 oil
it has def helped the engine it sounds much happier this mnorning

Its not much more then a thickening additive, dont bother with it as its just a waste of money.

There is no substitute for quality oil and regular changes.

Cheers

Re: luca heavy duty oil stableiser

wondered when mr oil would appear.

Why not change to a thicker oil, but would not the tappety noise indicate an underlying problem. Will this stiff get rid of piston slap or a knocking bottom end?

Re: luca heavy duty oil stableiser

It may well stop piston slap, but like Guy said earlier, a good oil in the correct grade would be a better choice

And going by experience a new oil pump would be a good idea...
