Question SLICK50 oil in Legend, some experience?

hi,

someone has proved this product?, in my country some mechanics says that is bad for the engine, oils filters and other problems, although some friends have
bought this and their engines run successfully ,better compression, less consumption fuel and oil

how is this product in a legend engine, is good for it?, some experience? is it recommendable?

regards

Hmm, I never seen anyone use that type of oil. Hopefully someone that knows more about oil can chime in for you.

really is a engine treatment with teflon, it is mixed with the normal oil (750 ml of slick50 + oil normal litres)

with the time and the running a thin oil film that protects the engine in cold start, and prevents burnout

Don't use it if you respect your car and plan on keeping it around

Yeah no worries. One product that is very good is AutoRx. Idk if they will ship to the EU but it's worth looking into.

And the engine is actually a c27a4 from the accord. But close enough

I have used a product which would have been identical. Claimed that you could run an engine without oil for thousands of kilometres without any problems...teflon blah blah etc.

End result made no difference and I DO NOT use additives of any sort in my car anymore. I have tried them all, power stearing, radiator, oil additive for ticking, stop oil leaking etc they are band aids at best and generally speaking don't help.

Yeah, not worth the money.
Even heard some rumors that it can cause damage because it is too 'slick'.

Btw, welcome to the forum. We don't often get members from Spain here. We had a G2 owner from there once but he's not active anymore.

Any pics of your car?

Well, all bullshit aside, I ran Slick50 in my first Legend ('87 Sedan L) from 1989 until about 2000, when I switched to Mobil 1 synthetic (with no problem by the way). I come from an aviation background and a few aviation technicians I know used the stuff in their cars. One even went as far as running his engine after draining the oil "just to see what would happen" - he ran it for about 10 minutes without any notable problems-refilled the oil and kept on going. So I figured, what the hell, if it can do that then it probably wouldn't hurt to use it.

So for what it's worth, I would have absolutely no problem recommending this to anyone who asked. I ran my '87 Legend up to over 110,000 miles on it without a single problem. Did it make a difference? Hell I'll never know, but what I do know is I always got great gas mileage, never had a problem, never had an oil leak, blue smoke, etc. up the day I sold her - and from what I hear she's still running around Phoenix with over 200k now. Go figure!

My stepdad used to work for a group that had heavy diesel machinery, e.g. excavators, bulldozers, and mining equipment. They got their equipment's engine oil analyzed monthly. The Slick50 DRASTICALLY reduced the engine wear, like, incredibly. But that's heavy diesel equipment, not an 80's luxury gasoline-burning car.

You know, I just noticed my father used it in his 85' Nissan Pickup, but I never asked him if it worked for him.

I was into synthetic oils some years back and read some engineering studies on Slick 50. As I recall, the biggest issue was that over time and under the right conditions, the teflon would fall out of suspension and, under extreme cases, could cause a buildup significant enough to clog the oil pickup screen and lead to oil starvation.

If I were to "go the extra mile", I'd limit it to just running a high-quality synthetic oil with a high quality (non FRAM) filter.

You got that right. FRAM filter sucks ass.

I do like the high-grip paint they use on the end though.
