    Question wd 40 spray for suspension of civic 2000 vti oriel automatic

    Hello to all PW's.

    Hope you are fine.

    From many days, I am thinking to spray the wd 40 on rear suspension ( shocks and springs) because on bumpy road there are some "chu chu" sound coming from back suspension- mostly voice come from left side.

    Recently change rear suspension bushes complete to new RBI ones, front ball joints RBI made, z-links of same brand. Also inspect all shocks and spring, all of them are in mint condition so didn't changed it.

    So experts @Xulfiqar tell me it is better to lubricate the suspension with wd-40 after servicing the car - especially springs, shocks or bushes?

    Also debate on -ve effects of using the wd 40 on suspension.

    Is wd-40 effective in removing grease, oil and dirt from engine bay?

    I never sprayed the diesel underneath of car from car servicing station.

    Assuming you've rubber bushing, not polyurethane, you can use WD-40 Silicon spray as a temporary solution. It comes in grey cans with yellow cap.

    Never use blue/red WD-40 on any rubber parts- or in fact anywhere where lubrication is needed- it is a penetration oil, or a temporary remedy, not a lubricator.

    From above link, it is clear that wd40 can be used to lubricate the ball joints, shock absorbers but it can't harm the paint as many members said that wd40 harm the paint?

    Rest @Xulfiqar will tell professional things about wd40 either it can be used or harm the rubber parts and paint?

    The WD-40 I have is silicon free. I read here that WD-40 silicon spray is more appropriate for rubber and bushings. But let's see what seniors recommend.

    i had sprayed wd-40 on my cars o2 sensor and ruined it! i thought that it will soften the carbon from inside and the rest will be done by the intense extreme heat inside the exhaust system that it will blow the carbon away but ulta o2 sensor hee mental ho gaya aus keh baad! had to purchase a new o2 sensor after that!
    but lesson learnt was keh har cheez pe wd-40 nae mari jati lol!

    'Loosens rusted oxygen sensor in car exhaust pipe', to 'open' it.

    This is what above links say about WD-40 and oxygen sensor. Just for info.

    It has 2000+ uses and a lot of misleading info is on internet related to it, so it is always better to confirm.

    as @uiv said - the silicone spray WD40 is allowed on rubber parts not the blue can, however if your bushings are old and sloppy and not providing good pivoting then best change the bushings - remember that rubber ages with time too - so technically a 20 yr old car with only 4 kms on the odo will also have bad bushings (seen that a thousand times)

    The squeak you hear is almost never bushings but mostly ball joints - specially the rear ones on old honda - the rear joint locates the upper edge of the spindle. Its a sealed joint but the replacement parts you buy will have a threaded hole that is opened up for greasing and then plugged again.


    springs themselves dont require any oiling unless they are leaf springs (kamani) - your car does not have any. applying oil to shock absorbers is also useless, the high pressure hydraulics are in the casing and no oil from outside can get in.
