Squeaky noise from everywhere

I know my car is about 17 years old. I am hearing squeaky noise from everywhere. I guess a can of WD-40 is working like an Advill on my 944 most of time.

I sprayed WD-40 at the back hatch hook and it seems like removed some squeaky noise from the backside. Now I hear some from my doors. I wish I can drop my car in the bath tub and shower him with WD-40... What is the best way to remove this squeaky noise?

As I new owner, I will defer to the more experienced. However, on previous vehicles, I have used white lithium grease on door and trunk hinges as WD-40 is going to be rubbed from the point of friction within a few days.

Yep, I use lithium grease on pretty much all moving parts. It's much thicker, and seems to stay in place a lot better. However, if it's in a high-dust area, like seat rails, then I use graphite, because it's a dry lubricant. WD-40 is pretty much un-used in my garage.

They would have it. Spray lithium is the easiest to use, use it pretty much just like WD-40. Spray graphite as well. Just remember, with the graphite, is is BLACK, and does rub off. Do not over-apply, or you will have nice black spots on the carpet.

WD-40 still has it's place, on pontiac's and subaru's, just not on my baby.
