My engine has started to make a ticking noise.its a high mileage vauxhall engine.Cars only worth a few hundred pounds so i don’t want to spend money on repairing it.someone told me that you can get an additive for your oil which will thicken it up and quieten the engine down. does anyone know the best additive to do this? thanks
lucas oil stabilizer works great. also you could try using some Seafoam in the oil it works great. helps to clean stuff out of lifters and various other areas
but I would highly recommend Lucas
you can pick it up at your local parts store or probably even walmart

Whats the best oil additive to thicken my oil?

Rings could be the problem but so could a stuck pcv valve. See if you can not find a bottle of “no smoke”. It is not much more than a thickening agent for the oil
why put additive in the oil? why not change the oil and go to a heavier oil. if you don,t want to change the oil then get what i got for a car once. i got some cd2 oil additive at auto zone.
If you don’t repair it it will probably go bang and then it won’t be worth anything!
Thickening the oil is not a good idea!
The ticking noise is probably due to sticking valve lifters. Putting in a higher viscosity oil will probably make it worse. Try some valve lifter treatment which will clean the lifters and quiet them down.
howard L is right a thinner oil or engine cleaner will unstick the lifters then fill with castrol fully synthetic 10-60 it makes any engine run quieter with hardly any oil use or burning
i would say go with lucas motor oil additive and to use a thicker weight oil in the car. that way you can cover the vavles and the other motor components better and quiet your sound.
Preset the timer on your own TV to turn off after 1 hour to remind you to do something more active.

What makes the Hot Shot’s Secret Oil Additive stand out is the powerful formula that cleans and maintains the engine. The product increases the overall engine power, removes deposits, and reduces friction and noise. On top of that, it doesn’t contain any harmful acids that could damage the engine, so your vehicle will be perfectly safe.
This oil additive is very efficient in protecting the engine components and stabilizing the oil. You can use it on both diesel and gas engines. The product quickly gets rid of deposits, improves mileage, and lubricates the oil pump, rings, pistons, injectors, and more. The results show almost immediately, resulting in more enjoyable rides.
Although very efficient and reliable, this oil additive is not flawless. It seems that it works better on diesel engines rather than gas engines. While it significantly improves the overall performance of diesel engines, the noise reduction in gas engines is not that noticeable. Also, considering the product comes in a 32-ounce bottle, it’s quite pricey.
