Probably 195*.....modern engines are designed to run at 200*+ for minimal wear and maximum performance!!

I work in the commercial baking industry and once we had a big azz gear box going bad but we couldn't get a new one for a week so we added a gallon of Lucas every 8 hrs so the seals wouldn't blow. It worked but don't go putting crap into a brand new motor. It's not necessary and is a waste of money. My 95 GT went over 300k miles on Castrol GTX 10w30 and a Fram filter. It lived most of its life in a place with more dirt roads than paved and it was still running and didn't burn oil when it was rebuilt. Don't tell anyone but my secret was/is changing regularly.


Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.

Like mentioned, the normal tick tick tick n so on is the injectors. Been the norm for years. The BBQ tick is definitely noticeable and glad that I don't have it either.

Most of those oil treatments and such is snake oil. It's there for ppl to make money. Now Lucas isn't that bad but if you have no reason or an issue, don't use it just to use it. A good oil like motorcraft or better full synthetics will work perfectly fine.

Lucas stabilizer is just low-grade, super viscous oil with no additives. All it does is thicken your oil and dilute the additive package that does a bunch of important things - anti-wear agents, detergents, anti-foam, viscosity improvers, etc. It might have a place in an extremely worn engine that is about to be retired but has no place in properly functioning machinery.

Ask yourself this...if these additives were as incredible as the companies claim to be, then why wouldn't an infinitely rich oil company like ExxonMobil or Shell just add them to the oil to begin with?
