Hot Rod & Classic Car 10W-40 Motor Oil

Lucas Hot Rod & Classic Car Motor Oil SAE 10W-40 is manufactured with the highest quality paraffinic base oils and is fortified with a unique additive package containing high levels of zinc, molybdenum and phosphorus, which provides a tougher, thicker additive film for maximum protection even under the most severe conditions. It lowers oil temperatures, extends oil life and minimizes metal fatigue. It improves the film strength between the cylinder wall and piston rings and slows oil burning and improves pressure in worn engines. It has good cold temperature properties and stands up to high operating temperatures. It is compatible with methanol and all racing fuels, as well as with synthetic and non-synthetic oils.

Lucas Hot Rod & Classic Car Motor Oil SAE 10W-40 is for muscle, showroom, classic and trophy cars without catalytic converters. It can be used in racing applications. Not recommended for passenger car use.

Available in convenient 5 quart bottles, the formulation is perfect for the Hot Rod and Classic Car crowd with an increased zinc value of 2100 PPM. Because many of these very special machines often spend long periods off the roads, a number of the components of the additive package used in Lucas' Marine oils to provide rust and corrosion protection have been included in its unique formula.

Ted Benau Uses Trans Fix in '95 Ford Taurus

I have a ’95 Ford Taurus that was bought brand new (3 miles only). I have been it’s personal mechanic and taken care of it since it was a baby. And I have regularly changed filters, fluids, and maintenance when needed. It presently has 233,431 miles on it, and my car has ran as quite or quieter than quite a few newer vehicles. The only problem pending was a lot o transmission slipping. It had this problem for about 2 years, but I didn’t think there was anything I could really do for the amount of money I had; so I just let it be.

Now back in May I ran my car through about 1’ of water on the road..hey I like to splash and I got those waves about 20’ high! So that was cool, but what was not so cool was the automatic transmission got locked up and I couldn’t go higher than 2nd gear, so I had to driver everywhere slow for about a day before I could work on it.

I took the bottom transmission pan out, changed the fluid, cleaned the electrical connections and then I worked ok for about 2 days, but then my OD was gone and I couldn’t go higher than 3rd gear. So, for about 2 weeks I drove around in frustration because I didn’t know what else it could be.

So I went to AutoZone and was looking in the fluid isle because I thought maybe I needed1 more quart of fluid. That is when I saw Lucas Transmission fluid. Your claim on the bottle said about “noticing results immediately” and “stops trans slipping” and “frees gears”. So I thought to try it. I bought the one quart and put it in. About 2 days later I was in a rush to get to a wedding and I noticed my car was driving very smooth at 75 mph on the express way. And I thought “what the heck? Oh that is excellent!”

Not only did your Lucas transmission fluid correct my mission overdrive gear problem which was a problem for over 2 weeks, it also stopped the transmission slippage which was a problem for well over 2 years!

So what I intend to do is mimic what I do with my oil. I have pure synthetic oil and I only change 1 quart and filter every 10k miles. Now I intend to drain all the trans fluid I just put in and replace it with 8 quarts of Lucas transmission fluid. (yes I know it is 12 quarts, so I am sure 8 quarts to 4 is more than phenomenal.

So I just wanted to say thank you for advertising with your little stickers notifying of your product that caught my eye. I have not ceased to tell everyone who know s anything about cars or having problems about your products! I swear it. I had a 1991 Izuzu p/u truck and had rear main seal leaking and it was going to cost me $1200 to repair it. My cousin told me to use Lucas oil. He also advised me to use 2 qt. with an oil change. So I changed my oil and added the 2 qt. of Lucas oil and it stopped the leak. So I keep using the oil and made it to 252,000 miles on the truck. I have a new truck now, and I saw my old Izuzu truck last week and it is still running well. I also use it in my wife’s car. She has a Chevy Lumana, and it has 172,000 miles on it and it was still running well. I want to thank you for a good product and I will tell everyone about it. Thanks again, Donald Richard! My 1997 Buick LeSabre transmission was starting to shutter during shifting into and out of 3rd and drive. I thought “I’ll stop in to the AutoZone store and see what I can get to solve the problem.” Wow! The number of transmission additives cover several feet of shelf space. I read all of the labels, and I did not trust asking an employee because I always feel the recommend the one with the highest margin for them. So, what do I do? One brand claimed “results are usually immediate”. Hmm, at least I’ll know quickly if this one works. So, I bought Lucas Transmission Fix. I went home, poured it into the old Buick and went for a ride. Problem gone!!! It worked immediately! I suggest that you make the words larger on your container. Thanks for the great product.
