I have been using the QUAKER STATE grease on my T and i cant seem to find this grease in any auto part store ,I can get the VALVOLINE one with the same NLG!-GC-LB # but it is red,.Can i mix these grease or do i have to clean out one to use the other
Thank You Lorenzo
I found out the hard way that certain types of grease are non-compatible and when mixed together, become thin, almost watery. -Oddly, the two types I mixed together were both red. -Ergo, not all red greases are the same.
forgot to add [most important part] one is red other honey color,with same#
Good article on the different types of greases at
I will not use the honey/peanut butter colored grease like you show on the right. I had two new front wheel bearings fail in a short time using it. They were not on my T, but on another vehicle. Now I cannot trust that grease and threw away an almost full tub of it.
Grease is nothing but oil and some form of soap..
With that said some of those soaps don't like
Each other and will dissolve. It is best to pick one and stick with it. I like the red. Philip
You canít go wrong with the red Valvoline. Like oil, grease breaks down and becomes ineffectual over time so, instead of risking mixing new red grease with old worn out and possibly incompatible amber grease, it would be best to clean out the old grease and add the new fresh red grease. Jim Patrick
The color in grease is just used to help identify the grease, it has nothing to do with the base. Both of these greases are lithium base. they can be mixed without any problems.
I thought any grease was better than none at all. You guys brought up a subject that I have never heard of. I always blamed bearing failure on power grease guns, because I can't tell if they are putting out grease. Dad said bearing failure was because a grease worm got in there
