Hi Im about to replace a steering wheel shifter, that broke off my brother 03 ford explorer , I bought a replacement and the part say to use lithium or moly grease the shaft before install.

I have some mobil 1 synthetic grease ( red color ) , will this meet this requirement ?

I also have a can of multi purpose wheel bearing grease ( kinda dark green/brown looking ), that I bought from advance auto part, i forgot the name, will this be ok.

thanks

I believe Mobil 1 will meet your requirements.

Pretty sure the Mobil-1 Synthetic grease is lithium-based.

From what I've seen Mobil 1 grease liquefies over time, It would be a last resort choice, I see little use for it in anything.

M1 is a lthium complex grease. Have heard a lot about it running/liquifying over time but I have a tube that has been usedA LOT for misc greasing including threads and wheel bearings over the past couple years with good results.

Couple years back I put a dollop of M1 grease as well as trifloe synthetic waterproof grease in seperate bottles of water and left in garage. To this day neither shows any signs of break down- but of course they are just sitting there, no shearing and not being "worked."

Actually the better grease is one that will liquify somewhat. Here is the link explaining this.
