wowzah like whoa.
okay, first off, I will start with my problems. Since i've had the car, i have never been able to idle and just chill for more than 30 seconds without being worried about the car leaving a huge cloud of oil smoke and what smelled like antifreeze smoke behind me. i had Pennzoil 5W30 in there with a Fram filter first. and it never got any worse or better, i was certain my car wouldn't pass emissions because of this.
A little more than a month and a half ago i changed my oil. i got it at Advanced Auto. The Oil i used was Mobil 1 Full Synthetic (Zero) 0W40 and Lucas "Full Synthetic" Oil Stabilizer. I also used a factory Honda oil filter.
after the oil had a chance to run through the car, the smoking began to dissipate. after about a week smoke was gone. once i sat for 20 minutes and drove off, there was smoke for quite a long ways down the road but after it cleared up it was fine again. and now i can sit for long periods of time and not see any smoke from behind the car.
Product review. Mobil 1:
Mobil 1 sythetic 0W 40 looks like water going it. i was really worried about bearing wear. that was until i remembered the Legend has tetramthyl lead bearing and that keeps oil and Lucas is supposed to help eliminate dry starts.
the Mobil 1 immediately give oilpressure and it gets warm quick and will get thick very soon which helps the engine run pretty smoothly and strongly.
Lucas Synthetic Oil Stabilizer...uhhhh wow! yea i have to admit, this stuff seemed really gimmick to me. i was sure it was just another magic miracle oil. I put this in and even though i didn't feel the "kick in the ass" people said they've felt, i could feel that my engine would run alot smother and was freer revving.
I love the Honda Oilfilter just for the piece of mind, and i love the Lucas Ooil Stabilizer. however im not too sure if i would want 0W40 for anywhere that's warm. i put 0W40 in during the hot season...(smart right
) but when it gets cold im sure im going to appreciate it.
Lucas...GET IT. great stuff, it works like a charm and reconditions your seals. High Mileage Oil has the additives that Lucas basically is. try it out.
