Re: motor sounds loud

Techron is what chevron puts in its gas, its also sold in bottles.

Its 1 of the additives for fuel that actually works.

Re: motor sounds loud

You can purchase them at CostCo. They are actually relatively cheap in
price.

If the "loud" sound is under the hood, it could be a bad hydrostatic fan
clutch (or one that's going bad and sticks when it's cold).
