Icon14 Engine Restore=A+++

Well yesterday I went to Wal Mart and picked up some oil and an oil filter. I heard some good things about the Engine Restore additive. Soo I said ok, I'll try it. So When I was adding the new oil, I poured 1/4 of the 5qt jug in to the engine, than poured the Restore into the oil bottle and shook it well to mix it better. Than added the rest of the oil into the truck. All I can say from what I have noticed..........this stuff does work. Worked about 2 minute after starting the truck. Now not as much ticking, feel like it runs much smoother to me. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to notice a change in high mileage vehicles. I give it an A+++

Back in my days(ancient history) we tried an experiment with STP oil treatment..the stuff thats as thick as..well its thick..very.
We added it to a 71 nova with a 6 cylinder. We where pulling it & replacing it with a 350 & had no use for the 6. We ran it for a few minutes & then drained all the oil out. Then we started it back up & tried seizing the motor up, after 15-20 minutes we gave up. It proved to me that STP helps seriously in lubricating bearings & cylinder walls. I haven't used the stuff in years & am not sure they even sell the product anymore but it did work. I had a 68 Firebird that while I was rebuilding the engine I used STP as a pre-lube & then added the rest of the can when I finished building the motor. After 1000 miles it went through 3 quarts of oil. I drained the oil(hot) & refilled with convetional oil & no STP & the rings where broke in within several hundred miles. Some snake oils do work but I would guess not many.

Buddy of mine back in my college years, his car at the time was a 89 Ford Probe. Bought the car with low compression across the board, about 60psi average in each cylinder. He bought some Restore for the car and said it worked great! Raised his compression to 150psi average in all cylinders and worked as described. He still has the car to date for 5 years now awaiting a new 5spd tranny. Otherwise, runs like a top. -Mike-
