Lubro-Molly?

Does anyone know where to get this stuff? It is a German product that cleans the valves. If anyone has used it? Will Techron in a bottle clean the carbon better than the techron I supposedly get from Chevron gasoline?

I think what you have in mind is called Ventil Sauber.

Re: Lubro-Molly?

Woody-

Lubro Moly is called Liqui Moly in Germany. They make a wide range of wonderful products. These products are of the highest quality and are approved by manufacturers such as Porche , BMW and Mercedes. I use them regularly in my cars. I like their Ventil Sauber (Valve Clean) and the Jectron (fuel injection cleaner) especially. I find they make an instantaneous difference when I use them.

You can visit their web page at:
http://www.liqui-moly.de

If you have any other questions I'd love to help. I just love these products. Only problem is that we don't have access to the full international line.

We are all friends here so I'm going to go the extra step.
This is the direct home number of Mr. Gary Boyd who is the official North American supplier 1-800-223-1634
Call him if you need to find a supplier in your area, and try to call him during business hours. He is in California.

And guys, please try not to flood him with calls.
Thanks.

Woody,
I don't know if there is a better product for cleaning injectors, etc. than Chevron's Techron, but do not buy it at a Chevron station. There is a more concentrated version available from auto parts or selected garages. The one I am referring to comes in a large container, but I do not know the size--something like a quart or so--and seems somewhat pricey, but it is more concentrated than the service station type, and therefore a lot less expensive. I do not use any type of additive and recall only one problem with my injectors on my '85 500SEL when we had a heavy rainstorm and my wife filled the car up--problem was, lots of water got into the station's tanks, then into my injectors. They paid for the repairs, but all the injectors had to be replaced. At the time, I almost considered changing my habit of buying gas wherever it was cheapest, but that was in 1996 and I have not had a problem since. Maybe the gas is better here in Texas. It certainly tends to be cheaper. I have never been too enthusiastic about additives. They remind me of the snake-oil peddlers in the old West. They must have changed with the times, but then there are all the hair and genital peddlers, too. What is next? Cloned babies? No, how could there be a market for clones when we throw away so many real ones as it is?

thanks, realneal. I was just looking at the techron, of all places at the chevron station. They sell a very little bottle for $7 . I didn't know there was a large bottle. I am going to check it out.

I finally found Lubro Moly in Vancouver, BC Canada at www.hopefungautoparts.com

I find most Lubro Moly products sell in USA, but not Vancouver area. Today, finally find that kinds item.

I used 10W40 super motor oil (mixed MOS2) for my 87 MB 190E and use Air Intake cleaner to clean idle control valve and air flow meter. After used that, car runs more smooth. Highly recommented.
