Lubro-moly or liqui-moly???

So I came across this stuff this morning and thought that it might be good to quiet down whatever is whining on our D-90.

http://www.offroadtuff.com/lubro-moly.htm

Has anybody ever tried it before? The only problem is I can't tell where the whining is coming from, but I suspect it's the transfer case or rear diff. Seems to happen at speeds above 30 mph generally.

Now, is it a 'new' whine ? Or the same whine that they all have ?


I'd be careful putting this stuff in with any Synthetics, I hear that's not a good idea... At least the AMSOIL I use, says so.

It's been whining for about the last 4 years (we bought it new in 94) but it had never done it prior to that.

Molybdenum disulphide is a common additive to gearbox oils.
Many motorcycle manufacturers recommend them for the gearbox/final drive as an additive to the gear oil. Moto Guzzi, and BMW being a couple of the above. (these motorcycles have separate gearbox/final drive oils, as opposed to the japanese motorcycles, which use motoroil for everything).

I have personally used MoS2 in Amsoil gear oil (in motorcycles), without any problems. The key to remember is to add the right amount (which is very small).

Havins said that, here's a site that shows a study which claims that these lubricant additives dont work:

I dont see a harm in it, but I havent added any to my gearboxes on my D90 (yet).
Actually..I never thought about it, even though I have a bottle sitting in the garage...
Maybe I'll give it a shot.
