I doubt it will fix any vibrations, but it's definitely safe to use. I assume you're talking about the MoS2 additive?

I'm using it right now and can't tell the difference. Tip: Make sure you shake the bottle well and rinse it with new engine oil. I took me about a quart of new oil (about 15 rinses) before I can see the metal bottom of the can.

With MMO and TC-w3, I can tell the engine goes very smooth.

I'm running a ~5% dose of MoS2 in my Focus right now. I've had it in for 2 weeks, and for the past few days the engine does seem to be slightly quieter and smoother. Of course, this could also be my imagination. Who knows. I'm also using M1 right now, and on this motor and on every car I've had, the engines have been a tiny bit noisier on M1, FWIW. Still a great oil though.

I've used the Lubromoly and other MoS2 additives and in my experience :

- It wont fix any major rough running problems.

- It can increase MPG's a little bit.

- In the case of some loss of oil/pressure calamity it definitely will increase the amount of time you have to react before you trash the engine. I had first hand experience of this and the effect of MoS2 in the oil was almost unbelievable in this regard.
