You could stop using crap oil like WD40.. That's bearly good enough for a bike chain.
You could actually provoke squicking and other noises just by using that.. Because the thin oil could dissolve the grease, and thus make the joint dry out faster..
Exactly what points/places do you think the car needs lubrication ?
a '79 ? In europe that could mean both W116 and W126.. Wich is it ?
If it's a W126, I don't think there are any places that could or should be lubed.. Except from the door-hinges..
If it's a W116, the door-stoppers and hinges, together with the window-mechanism, are the only parts that could be GREASED (Not oiled)..
All other parts are sealed and should not need lubrication . At all..
Except from rear-axle, gearbox and engine of course.. Those should be replaced right away.. Along with filters..
The fuel-filter also..
