An oil stabilizer is a product formulated to compensate for wear in old engines and gear boxes and stop the wear process in new ones. Typically, it is a blend of petroleum extracted additives that allow motor oils and gear oils to maintain a higher degree of lubricity. It eliminates high temperature viscosity breakdown even under the most extreme conditions. It also allows the oil to last 50% longer.
Oil treated with a stabilizer does not run off cylinders after shut down. This eliminates dry starts which is a primary cause of wear in an otherwise well maintained engine.
Plain motor oil is formulated with the tolerance of new engines in mind. Once an engine becomes worn, the wearing process advances at a rapid rate because motor oil alone cannot fill the space between moving parts. Most stabilizers are formulated for both new and old engines. While a small amount (15%-20%) can maintain a new engine, larger amounts (up to 60%) can be added to a worn engine to properly seal and cushion the moving parts to slow oil consumption and prevent further wear. It also stops most seal leaks. Blends with all automotive lubricants, even synthetics, mineral oil and ATF.
Oil stabilizers are typically used on big rig trucks and in race cars. I got this information from a website selling their brand of oil stabilizer.
Now that you read this stop an think you change your oil every 2500 or 5000 miles. Right so is your oil really dirt or is the oil life over?
It says it good for new motors and clings to part. Isn't that what your oil does now?
Snake oil is what it is.
