    i have a command 23 hp and 1500 hrs on it . it still runs great but i keep getting lifter noise sometimes. i changed to mobil 1 synts 10-30 and all was well-for a while -now the noise is back. would using kohler 10-30 help?

    You can give it a try, But with that many hours you may need to replace the lifters.

    well i took it to the dealer this am and wouldnt you know-the noise was gone. he said it would be 3 weeks till he could get to it and that i should just keep using it -used it today in 100 deg temps -not a sound -go figure. mabey the kholer oil worked after all?
