In my quest of finding issue for one of our oil burner Civic, I came across Scotty Kilmer video and he suggested to use Lucas Oil Stabilizer(https://www.amazon.com/Lucas-10001-Heavy-Duty-Stabilizer/dp/B000AS1XYO).

Was wondering, if anyone here has any personal experience with it? If so, any feedback for it?

Thanks for the advice and help thumbsup

We must have watched the same video. I was going to write that Scotty likes it.

Does your Civic smoke?

Yes, I guess on a Toyota engine - where Scotty showed it laugh

Yes, Civic is an oil burner, unfortunately.

I tried it once and was nervous after putting it in. I used it in the fall and it came out of the bottle like grease and it gave me a CEL so I dumped it.

Don't ever fill your power steering with Lucas PS leak stop.....when the cold weather hits,you will regret it....even 2 years later.

Lucas Oil Stabilizer is just thick oil with no additives.

Suggest switching to an HM oil, going up a grade or two, or both.

I have, however, had success with Lucas PS Stop Leak putting an end to a PS pump front front shaft leak. No issues for me in the frigid NC winter.

Depends on where at in the state and or the weather pattern. In Asheville area or Boone it can get surprisingly very cold at times. In eastern NC it takes a weather pattern like three weeks ago in order for it down into the single digits for low overnight temperatures. Even some areas near Roanoke Rapids got to -4F during that very cold spell with snow on the ground.

thus I call it a "subtractive" (the opposite of additive)...it dilutes the additives in your oil, only adding viscosity.

It's a good product for the OP's application, and he can get it on Amazon I believe.

I love how people use LOS and MMO with the same expectations.
KV wise LOS>SAE70, MMO<0.
What am I missing?
