I put Fluid Film on my Frontier today! Living in Michigan we have a very harsh winter environment(road salt). The salt eventually ate holes through my Pathfinder. This is the second year in a row i have applied this stuff. So far I like it and think it works well. I applied 2 quarts to the underside.

Anyone else using Fluid Film?

Does it hold up to a car wash? I’m in Utah and considering using it this year. But I️ like to wash the truck once a week or so. Not sure if it’s just gonna wash off right away.

Its not water soluble and holds up pretty well. If you don't do the under body wash it should be fine.

Did you apply it to the exhaust? Wondering if it would produce smoke and or burn off...

I have fluid filmed all my vehicles going on 5 years running to include my Frontier. Great stuff if applied right and annual reapplication is performed.

You do not apply fluid film to exhaust on purpose but as a matter of course when apply to the underside, the stuff that does get on it, melts off after a few heat cycles. It's main ingredient is lanolin and does stand up to normal washes and leaves a protective layer to last for a annual application season.

After considering the prep associated with por15 plus the fact that ill scrape 60% of it off on rocks and the flaky reviews on tacomaworld, i sprayed about 4 or 5 cans of fluid film yesterday.

Smells great coming off the exhaust.


It is a great rust inhibitor for the small spaces that I could never reach with a wire brush. I'll try to update with a review after this winter

Ive never heard of that product. I have a yearly car wash plan and in the winter go as often as every other day or sooner if needed. Truck is always sparkling clean and shiny from all that polish wax.

I use it on my SeaDoo, but will probably spray most metal surfaces in the engine bay and under the truck...The good thing about it, is that it doesn't harm rubber unlike what has been reported with WD-40.

Watercraft Superstore catalog has a write up comparing the three spray lubricants and their effectiveness:

Like the idea of this vid, but IMO, they should just use Fluid Film.


I sprayed it in my door drains today...
