What's your opinion about it? Is it worth the price? I used it on my previous car before, but as I sold it (and always took good care of it) I didn't have the chance really proof if it protected the engine.

No. The "teflon" in slick 50 actually cloggs oil passages (bad for HLA's) and cloggs your oil filter. Teflon is also much to weak to "bond to engine parts" like they claim.

Stay away.

Not 100% true. Petrolium based additives mix well with regular petrolium based oil, and sythetic attitives mix well with Synthetic oil, just don't mix the two seperate types together, and don't exepect miracles out of any of them.

If you run synthetic motor oil, you don't need any of the additives.

guys DuPont says not to use Teflon for high-stress areas. When stress is applied it expands. when you get a piece of clay and squeese (sp?) it between your fingers it will smoosh thin. Teflon would tend more to push back against your fingers (rough explanation).

When teflon first came out it was tried in artificial knees and hips against dupont's advice. The stuff expanded under the strain, chipped of and left metal rubbing on metal. The resulting lawsuits failed because all DuPont had to say was 'we told you so'.

Plus, if you have a decent filter, all the solids you add to your oil will just clog the filter sooner like random said.
