I use my 2008 Focus 1.8 petrol Zetec hatch to tow a lightweight caravan. I am thinking of adding Molyslip to the gearbox in the belief that it will help with the additional load on the gears. Good idea or not?

Have something to contribute?

wont really help the 1.8 doesnt have the strongest box at the best of times for towing ide use a 2.0 mondeo as its got the stronger box or even a diesel molyslip wont do much it makes the gears run with less interferance by coating them but wont change the load on the gears
