IMO, better quality snake oil.
You can free up stuck things, and lubricate noisy things with better dedicated products. There is no one product fixes everything, helps everything, again IMO.
Injector cleaner for the injectors. Good oil and frequent changes. Etc..
A worn engine is making noise to tell you it's time to do something.
As a side note, I drove a 380SL from philly to AZ, then San Fran, Washington, Chicago and back. It had a horrible rod knock before we started. Filled it with Mobile 1 on our way out and ran nice and smooth the whole way. Note: The knock was LOUD. My only guess is that the synthetic cleared some crud out of the system. Not that I endorse Mobile 1, it's just a story after all. But I still wonder why it had the effect that it did.
