Try adding some Lucas Engine Oil Stabilizer worked great on a vehicle that I was working on that had a ticking lifter. Ticking stopped after about 45 minutes of vehicle idling also did a oil change.


The Fox body Mustang is based on the VW Fox- this doesn't have any inspirational effect on me- I say, sell it-
