Re: Noisy Valves
Q #1) What is mystery oil?
Q #2) Don't you find that certain oils encourage the problem more than
others? It *seems* to me (could be just my emotions here) that a nice
20w-50 like Castrol GTX makes the sound go away. For a while last summer
I also added in some straight 50w... and, well, I think all that latter
stuff did was *muffle* the sounds!! &:-)
p.s. - I *do* like to shut my car off and admire it from a distance.
(Especially when I'm driving my Alfa.)
p.p.s - It *does* help to turn the radio up, although NPR is less
effective than MJQ at reducing the noise.
