However, be warned that STP oil treatment contains lots of zinc which may affect your cat. Mine is old car so I don't really care.

sorry to bring up an old thread, i just wanna know more about this product before i pour it into the engine.
basically, i have an old mitsu engine, famous for engine ticker they called it. some told me to add lucas oil treatment while some, miracle oil.
while the another is a Renault D4f clio engine, its 8 yrs old.. kinda rough but can live with it since EOL in 2 yrs time.
i still got lots of engine oil - carlube 5w40 lying in my storeroom, thanks to my huge purchase last year.
intend to change every 6-7k interval since i find it not lasting till 10k mark
As for the engine ticker and roughness of D4F, thinking of pouring some STP oil treatment, its only $5.90 as sold by one of the merchants in here.
Maybe a bottle shared by 2 engine..
since it was said that it thicken the oil, with zine as a cleaning agent. hopefully, the tickering sound will be off.
Then buy the stp fuel system cleaner, $21 and use it for the old mitsu engine.. i just took over for a year, it's 14 years old..
the cleaner should last me for 2 round.
after which, blaze all the way to KL, that should clear whatever junk content..
D4F, nothing to blaze, it already retired..
now is only performing 110km at most but i still loving it.
i know some may regards as snake oil but since it only $5.90 and an one time application, it don't hurt much to the wallet.
I have a pen, I have an apple..

STP Oil Treatment should be used with cars with 40k+, it enhances performance and drive. Noise reduction is evident as well. I recommend it with cars having 40k+, else you dont need this product.
Not for modern Cars with Valve Timing,Oil too thick can cause damage to Valvetrain...
