I have heard this as well.

Where does it go to?!?!?

Trapped in all the little pockets where sludge usually forms?

Or does it get stuck in the pleats of the oil filter and stay there?

Yes,
the little jars that I mixed for my freezer tests I left sit for a few months.

The oil drained out, and the molly stayed in the bottom, and couldn't be flushed out with detergent and hot water. Had to be scraped out, just like sludge

Does this also happen with oils with high amount of moly? I mean much higher than normal normal like tgmo 0Wx20 and my new favorite redline?

I don't think so.

The MoS2 is a mineral form, like graphite, not oil soluble like MoDTC.

(e.g. Zinc oxide versus ZDDP when you get it on your fingers)

I can say that I have added LM 2009 it to oil (LM 4200) before. 200 ML of additive equaled ~ 230 ppm of MoS2 in my oil analysis. LM 4200 does not contain any MoS2 so it all came from the can of 2009.

It did not settle out and I collected the sample from an oil extractor about half-way through the suction time

How fast does it settle out?
If it takes weeks to settle to the bottom of the oil, I would think it
would stay suspended in the oil in a car/truck engine that is used or run
daily or several times a week.(me).


My 2¢


There's no such thing as:
Too big of a battery,
Too large of a gas tank,
or too loud of a horn,
or too bright headlights.

Insoluble MoS2 is inferior to soluble MoDTC (common) or MoDTP (uncommon). Paying for the former is folly. I wouldn’t even use it if it was free. If you want the good stuff, use an additive that has it or an oil that has a lot of it. This thread should be in the additive forum.

Didn’t BITOG member Trav discuss a experience with LM moly additive? It wasn’t positive.

Correct me if I am wrong.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

It mixes up pretty easy after sitting in the can.

I use Mos2 in a CX-5 driven short trips, one a week, or less. My UOA showed high levels of moly suspended in the old oil. I posted the UOA here a while back.

Do you guys know what is in Rislone oil treatment/additive?
STP oil treatment says it has zddp on the bottle ... but Rislone doesn't specify and I wonder if it has moly or not. It is very popular with good reviews. Just curious what's in it crzy
I do like Red Line numbers ... Very solid oil!

You can try Castrol magatec of you like. The theory being there is quite a bit of ester and it should work to deaden the sound. The other theory is the oil is too thick upon startup thus once the oil thins the tick goes away.


make the inside of your engine oil cap white.
don't use.

I live in Augusta, GA and just picked up 2 bottles of Lubro-Moly MoS2 at my local Napa a few weeks ago. I'm not sure if it helps. The oil turned a dull gray color though.
