Default Lucas Products!

Anyone else absolutely LOVE Lucas stuff?

I mean there are so many bottles of junk out there that promise all and deliver nothing. However for the past many years, i've faithfully only put lucas products in my cars and it really does work. I swear by thier injector cleaner, oil stabilizer is amazing in my PT as well , seeing as the NEON/PT engines have the same issue of oil not getting high enough in the engine to really lube everything up. 1 qt of lucas before i dump the rest of the oil in, keeps all the oil in the upper engine, where it needs it :-D

Today for example i was about to do a 4 hour job to replace my buddies oil pan gasket on his 01 Sable.

But decided to throw a quart of Lucas oil stop leak in.........

Cleaned up the pan afterwards and we took it for an inspection about 7 hours later. Plugged up the leak well enough that the inspection tech said "wow you guys replaced this gasket quick, shes bone dry outside with nothing landing on the exhaust"........

$9.99 bottle did that...............yeeeea buddy!

I suggest you replace the gasket anyway; those stop-leak fixes are just a temporary solution.

As for Lucas itself, I also use their stuff like their injector cleaner and oil stabilizer. One of my cars has 236k miles; still burns rubber through the gears (rear end kicks out!), idles at 500rpm, and fires up everytime. Might have to thank Lucas for that though let's not forget that I'm meticulous about car-care.

Yeah. Hes gonna , issue is that gasket if 4-6 hrs labor haha so the lucas put a sticker on it for a few weeks until he gets the funds.

Lucas has saved many an engine in my life when thousands in repairs would have been needed otherwise. love the stuff.

I use their stuff to move oil from sitting in the oil pan up to the lifters, its heavier than oil, thus when you pour a quart in, it sits at the bottom, thus making the oil sit higher in the engine, helps a lot with pinging and keeps the upper end MUCH better lubed than any brand of oil on the market ;-)

Basically what oil stabilizer from lucas does. is....

Nothing for your HP..........nothing for your mileage haha

However it does condition seals pretty well, it lifts oil higher up in the engine, and it protects parts that may be a bit warn.

THATS IT.

all the other rave and rage that people believe it will do, then call it crap when it doesnt, is just old wives tales :-)
