    1987 Jaguar XJ6

    My friend has one of these.. the body is fully restored and it looks spectacular, but it doesn't run as good as it looks. Well, it runs fine, all the features work and everything and its a dependable daily driver, but it doesn't perform as well as it should. I am assuming that the air filter...

    EnergyCel and FrictionFree 3000

    Well I ordered a couple bottles of Friction Free 3000 (FF3k) today. My friend said his lifters are still silent and I'm looking forward to trying this stuff out. You see, in our G1 Acura Legends, it is very difficult to be completely rid of lifter ticking. I believe it would take 3-4...

    ARX w/ Restore

    The filter is twice the size of the normal ones, it comes from the acura dealership. i bought it off of a friend in california who has a father that runs a honda/acura specialty auto shop. I'm sure its better for performance, thats why I didn't feel the need to be this specific <img...

    ARX w/ Restore

    I've heard that adjusting the exhaust valves will not solve my lifter ticking, it will only help slightly. This is a very very common issue on the Legend forums and I have read up on it well. I've been researching and discussing this stuff since I got my car. The ticking with Penn5w-30 was a...

    ARX w/ Restore

    Also, here is a reply I just received from my friend on the Legend Forums. <blockquote>quote:<hr />try moving up to a 10w-30. No more than that though. Spend some time driving around for some good long distances. visit some folks you haveen't seen for a while. At the rinse phase, keep an eye...

    ARX w/ Restore

    It seems like we are drifting off subject a bit now. I'm positive the lifters are ticking, I've been on the Acura-Legend.com forums for a long time now. High Mileage oils have been used since 1997, Valvoline was the brand and I still had ticking for a while after it was changed. I want to...

    ARX w/ Restore

    Thank you very much <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="images/icons/smile.gif" /> Nice reply. Hopefully you can understand that I'm mature enough to understand that I'm just being a stupid teenager with my reasoning here, but I'm also stubborn like many teenagers and I want to stick...

    ARX w/ Restore

    I knew I'd get at least one of these replies. I'm not interested in picking up "babes" or whatever you think I am. I am just embarrassed when the ticking turns heads. Its unwanted attention and I get embarassed by it. I know its silly and I shouldn't care what others think, and I know that...

    ARX w/ Restore

    -Please read I want to do a second treatment of Auto-RX in my 1988 Acura Legend w/ 189k miles but I am regretting what will happen when I do so. I am currently running GC and have been since my first treatment (which wasn't 100% complete). Whenever I do this ARX treament w/ regular oil (I'll...

    Oil for rebuilt `74 VW Engine

    <blockquote>quote:<hr />Originally posted by G-Man II: <strong> This VW engine has solid lifters, so selection of oil isn't going to quiet down a noisy lifter. You need to have the tappets adjusted. For the kind of service this engine sees, I'd use a HD oil like Rotella T, Delvac 1500, or Delo...

    Oil for rebuilt `74 VW Engine

    My family has a dune buggy that has a rebuilt 1974 VW Beetle engine in it and I need to know what oil to use in it. The buggy was built w/ the frame and front/rear ends from a 65 VW as well as engine and tranny, but after having some problems with the `65 engine we put in this rebuilt 1600cc...

    Lifter Tickage! grrrr

    i went to go get my oil today.. i couldnt pass up the advice i got from a fellow legend owner (who introduced me to this board) which was to get German Castrol Syntec 0w-30. I picked up 5 quarts of the stuff from my local autozone and i'm getting 3 of those big NSX oil filters shipped over...
