About a year ago, I inherited a 96 Dodge Ram 1500 extended cab, with only 108,000 miles, a perfect body and interior, so it's been my goal to make it
last as long as possible. Looking for a better way to protect the engine, I went full synthetic with the oil and recently found a hyper lubricant [
Not an oil additive ] that's seems to do a very good job. The stuff is called Motorkote.
Now, like I said, this stuff can be used in engines, but it is a hyper lubricant, not just an additive like Slick50 or similar products meant only for
oil. This can be used on anything that needs to be lubricated. I even use it on my guns, along with door hinges, tools, etc. I have had a noticeable
improvement in gas mileage, smoother/cooler running engine and much longer periods between oil changes. With the full synthetic and Motorkote, I'm
getting 8500 miles between changes. I use it in both our vehicles [ 96 Dodge - 2007 Chevy Equinox ] and noticed similar improvements in both. It is
a bit pricey, [ $33 a quart ] but you don't need much [ 2 oz per quart of oil ] and you don't have to use it at every oil change, like with
additives. One quart will treat up to 4 cars.
Has anyone else used this and gotten bad results? I'd like to know, as I've been running the stuff for about 12k and don't consider that long term
Those of us with older cars are always looking for ways to make them last longer and get better performance, so I wanted to pass this along.
