Hello,

I tried fluid film and WD 40 on my car's door hinges. But the minute it gets hot outside, it gets noisy again, it doesnt last.

Any suggestion?

I actually know the answer to this. I really do eek

When I replaced my torsion springs the spring seller told me about this.

ND-40 weight motor oil. Been there done that....

Trust me. You will thank me many months from now.

You will think you have installed new doors.

Cool! Now to find the ND-40!

I thought standard practice was white grease or silicone lube.

My squeaky gate was silenced with a little 80W-90 gear lube. I'd think you would want the EP additives in a gear oil over a plain SAE 40 dino oil.

I've tried a lot of different door hinge lubes over the years and simple 3 In One oil works for me. Wipe the hinge down with a paper towel to avoid dust build up.

Not a bad idea to hit it with WD 40 first if it's been a while then add your choice of lube. I'm trying some 3 and 1 with PTFE, we'll see how long it keeps the hinges quiet.

That looks like a good choice. I think oil will work for a while but a grease will hold up longer.

That made me think about Wurth HHS 2000 I've been wanting to try penetrating greases for a long time. I am surprised they are not more common.

Try cleaning the hinge with a rag, then, it a shot of Teflon type lube and then a shot of white grease. Heat helps distribute the white grease.

I've tried it all and stick to the super thick silicone spray or WD40 because they attract the least grid and dust and soot

I've been using Amsoil chain lube on door hinges and I'm happy with the results. It stops squeaking hinges and drys up enough to not collect dirt while still leaving a lubricating film.

Wurth HHS 2000. Best thing out there. Will creep in like WD-40, but then quickly turns to a thick, waterproof grease.
