Nulon Lifter Free & Tune-Up quietens lifters that are noisy during the first few minutes after start-up or during normal driving. The advanced cleaning formula safely softens and removes carbon and sludge deposits which are the major cause of noisy lifters.
Hydraulic lifter noise can be caused by several different factors
Nulon Lifter Free & Tune-Up can be used to correct causes 1 and 2 above. It can also be used as a diagnostic tool. If a lifter is still noisy 14 days or 500 km after using this product, it can be assumed that previous mechanical damage has caused the lifter noise.
The lifters should be removed and inspected or replaced.
After changing engine oil and filter, add 1 bottle per 5 litres of engine oil capacity. Leave in the engine until the next oil change is due. NOTE: Safe to use with all types of engine oils.
For advice, contact a Poisons Information Centre (Phone e.g. Australia 131 126; New Zealand 0800 764 766) or a doctor (at once).

Most modern engine use hydraulic valve lifters which can cause tapping noise on start-up if they are sticking or have blocked oil passageways. Nulon Lifter-Free and Tune-Up (LFTU) can remove carbon and oil sludge deposits when added to your engine oil.
Nulon anti-wear Engine Treatments based on PTFE can be added to engine oil at any time but are best added to new engine oil after an oil change. Please follow directions of use for the Nulon Engine Treatment products to ensure your engine receives the best possible protection from wear and friction.
No, all Nulon engine treatments are compatable with synthetic and mineral oils
No, all engine treatment products should only be used as per dosage recommendations as per directions. We would also recommend to not use more than one additive in an engine at one time.
No, oil changes should still occur at the intervals set by the vehicle manufacturer.
It is recommended to only use one Nulon engine product at each oil change.
It will dilute the engine oil, effecting its viscosity and ability to protect vital components. We recommend replacing engine oil and filter before driving.
Yes, Nulon engine treatments (Worn Engine Repair (E10),Modern Engine Treatment (E20),Pro-Strength Extreme Performance Engine Treatment,Passenger Car Diesel Engine Treatment, Pro-Strength Heavy Duty Diesel Engine Treatment etc) will reduce cylinder blowby and reduce crankcase pressures. Engine Stop Leak (ESL) will also rejuvinate hardened oil seals
Running a very thick oil can sometimes cause issues in modern engines. An area that is often overlooked when oil comsumption is a problem is hardened valve stem seals. Oil will bypass hardened seals and allow oil into the combustion chamber via the valve stems. Consumption as high as one litre per thousand kms can be caused by valve stem seal leakage. Nulon Engine Stop Leak (ESL) can rejuvenate hardened valve stem seals and should be used before moving to a thicker engine oil.
This depends to the fuel type (petrol or diesel) and also the age and mileage on the vehicle. Worn Engine Repair (E10) for high mileage engines with some wear, Modern Engine Treatment (E20) for engines in good condition, Pro-Strength Extreme Performance Engine Treatment as a long term treatment. Diesel engines should use Pro-Strength Heavy Duty Diesel Engine Treatment.
