They work but if improperly mixed can burn a hole right thru a piston.
Oil leak treatment s work mostly by causeing the rubber in the seals to swell,sealing the leak. What they neglect to tell is once added you have to keep adding it or the rubber shrinks back even smaller than it was and begins to deteriorate the rubber.
Just my opinion tho.
Me too, however some of these things DO work.

Sometimes things such as sticking injectors CAN be FIXED with this type of product, especially when it's oil related.
Now, I'm not for all the Z-Max's, Lucas', STP, etc. But I do think this has some merit.
Plus with Dave being our guinea pig...why not.
