Good News.... No lifter clatter
Thought I would let you know that I have conquered the hydraulic clatter on
my fine '87 5KQ.
I used to sell an oil fortifier called "Excel" which was made in Texas. I
had a few gallons of product left so I put it into Audi (5 ozs.) right after
I bought it last month. Before the "Clatter" was loud until after 2 or 3
minutes of running. Now it sounds like a Buick...just purrs. Now you do
hear a little clatter at start-up but it is gone in 2 or 3 seconds. The
Excel is not a coating or Teflon product but 100% petroluem based & it makes
your oil 5 to 6 times stronger. It also top lubes on dry starts. Another
benefit is that it will clean carbon off of the piston rings. (takes awhile
to do this) ...
