Q: I have a 1997 Ford F150 truck that has developed hydraulic valve lifter noise when it first starts in the morning and it is gradually getting louder.
The guy at the quick-change oil service I use told me that synthetic oil would solve the problem.
Will the Pre lube kit eliminate the lifter clatter on start-ups?
A: Yes the hydraulic valve lifters making the noise will be pressurized and adjusted before the first revolution of the crankshaft and further wear will be eliminated.
Q: How difficult is the Insta-Lube kit to install?
A: There are 3 easy steps to install the kit. The time it takes will depend on how experiensed the installer is.
Q: I have a Winnebago motor home with a 440 CID engine; will the pre lube system work on my engine as well as my four-cylinder Toyota?
A: Yes there are 4 Kit sizes to choose from for your 4 cylinder Toyota to the biggest Industrial engines.
Q: I am using a miracle oil additive that is supposed to eliminate wear on start up so why would I need to install the Inst-Lube Kit?
A: Your engine still needs oil pressure to separate the Main Bearings and Rod bearings before startup and the Inst-Lube pre-oiler will do just that.
Q: It's a well known fact that most of the motor-bearing wear is at start-up, so why don't the manufactures fix the problem?
A: The car manufactors sell more new engines this way.
Q: I have a classic car with 6-volt electrical will the pre oiler work on it?
A: Yes the kit will work on 24-volt, 12-volt and 6-volt systems.
