I just want oil change for my Mazda3 , I bought 5w-20 mobil 1 5 liters , and Napa gold filter.
My friend said I can add Lucas Oil Stabilizer, it is good for engine.

Does anyone know how to use it? Is it really good for engine?

Thanks

I'd never put anything but straight motor oil in any of my cars. Pretty much every oil company states on their product data sheets not to use any type of oil additive or stabilizer with their oil. Im pretty sure the mazda owners manual says the same thing.

Oh and great picks on the oil & filter. Your mazda will be happy.

Yup. Everything I've read indicates any oil additives or stabilizers, etc. are bad news and a waste of money.

Very bad!!! Do not put Lucas Oil Stabilizer in your car if you want your car to last!

Just look at the link at BITOG. It clearly shows Lucas Oil Stabilizer introduces air and foams up. Air is not a good lubrication and does not transfer heat very well...

I did a little searching and some of the guys at corksport say they run a half quart of Lucas oil stabilizer in their speeds. So if it's good enough for the corksport guys, turns I trust it.
Plus I'm positive that stuff kept my Toyota Camry with 300k miles on it alive until I sold it.
