My car has been loudly clacking its way to and from work ever since I've had it,
so I got some of this stuff and put it in the oil a couple of days ago.

Good grief! it actually works - the lifter noise is almost completely gone.
Thanks for the tip Mark - I was not looking forward to doing a lifter job
some time.

Anybody have any theories on how this jollop works? Also should I change the oil 
asap and hope the noise doesn't reappear?
