lucas oil realy works

for everyone that dosn't know or isn't a fermbeleaver then here you go. Last winter/spring around january my auto tranny was starting to go out. gears were skipping and not cetching. i drove it like that for acouple months before i got it fixed. well make a long story short come about july I drove from cali to wisconsin 1800 some miles on a bad tranny and used nothing but lucas the whole way. when i finaly got home i still drove it for another week before i got it fixed. when i took it in the mechanic took it apart and all the gears fell out. point of the dtory is it got me home to get fix, so yes lucas oil products actually work.

I've never been a fan of Lucas Oil Stabilizer, especially after reading Bob The Oil Guy's evaluation of it at What about Additives?

That test pretty well confirmed my suspicions.

I dunno how anyone could ever know if it was foaming, afterall it's inside a steel or aluminum housing where you can't see it.

my local auto parts store has one of those that is a hand crank. made me change my mind fairly quickly on what oils and other fluids i use.

every time i change my oil it never looks oxidized. the color it goes in is the same as it comes out. unless if it regains its original color after sitting for a bit. or does it?
