Some good info there.

I've used it once or twice. Quiets the engine down if you haven't had a valve lash adjustment in a while. But, seriously, most (if not all) full synthetic oils have additives in them. Another is only going to cost you more money. Couldn't hurt to have more I guess, but why pay for additives twice?

what is it that your looking to go for? car burning oil? loss of power? noisey?

i find lukas is awesome stabilizer and works great but i have also used bardahl and it works the same but is less for the price and quantity and is a thicker stabilizer helps alot with oil burning and valve noises.

i currently have bardahl in my oil as it has high kms and is burning little oil and i have the lukas tranny stabilizer in the tranny.

I woudn't go with it or recomend it.

There is a website dedicated to proving that the lucas transmission fluid oil puts more wear on transmission gearing then normal MTF.

I'll try to digup the link, very intersting stuff.

If you want to try to quiet down the motor, run a thicker viscosity oil. try 10W30 or 10W40...what oil are you running in the engine now? standard or synthetic?

i never said you did. you asked about lukas oil stabilizer and i gave my input on it and was letting you know that i find it works good so i even use there tranny stabilizer too.

i didnt have to give my input but you asked for peoples input.

Why not just invest in a good synthetic, instead of adding additional stuff to an oil that isn't doing what you want it to do?

Cheers

Makes your engine run quieter, but because it thickens your oil...mileage will suffer a bit.

I've never used the stuff so really can't give an opinion, but I have read that the little "demo" with the little cog wheels is not really representative of how the fluid actually behaves in the engine.... and, not wanting to be a "smartass" here, but if you want thicker oil, why wouldn't you just buy thicker oil??

I'm not putting Lucas down, or any other brand, but it seems to me that buying an oil, and then buying something else which modifies the oil is a band-aid approach to a solution which could be readily had by getting the proper oil for the job in the first place?

Cheers
