    It's bullshit in a can. Just cause it's neon blue doesnt mean it works. If it can 'fill scratches in cylinder walls' then it can fill passageways between bearings and related parts hindering oil-flow.

    You probably don't need it. These 4.9s are incredibly tough, if you've been keeping up on the oil changes there's probably little (or nothing) to worry about in terms of wear. If the engine is running fine, I'd leave well enough alone.

    The trans will fail looooong before the engine does. Now, that doesnt mean put restore in your trans!

    Re: Putting Restore in my 93 Deville

    What are you trying to accomplish by telling everyone you are putting restore in your caddy? Are you not sure you should do it? Maybe you are wondering if restore is worth using? Did you fix the running issue you were having yet? Do you think putting restore in the crankcase will fix it?

    By everyone I am assuming that you have access to an endless line of factory trained technicians and lab analysts who have tested restore in multiple type of engines over a very long length of time.

    Or maybe you are talking about the guy who lives across the street who swears his old jalopy only runs because he uses restore every oil change.

    mike93, Take it from a long-time engine builder: All your engine needs for a long, happy life is regular oil and filter changes and tuneups, all done with recommended components.

    Various potions and fixes are well marketed, do little or nothing for your engine, and are designed to separate you and your money. The very fact that they come and go in cycles (since the 1920's) is testimony to the power of the printed word.

    Do you honestly think that Dale Earnhardt, Jr. runs any of the crap on the sponsor stickers in his car ???? Maybe on his jacket - if it were in his engine the crew chief and engine builders would have a hissy fit..............

    Re: Putting Restore in my 93 Deville

    Fuel system cleaner(like Techron made by Chevron) is actually legitimate, along with engine cleaning products like Seafoam.

    Generally the snake oil products are ones that promise to fix major mechanical problems like cylinder wall wear, low compression, headgaskets, slipping transmissions, etc.

    To the OP, don't pour that stuff in your engine. Regular oil and filter changes along with running a good name brand gasoline(that has a good cleaning detergent like Techron in it) will keep your engine clean.
