Re: What A Dipstick!!!!

how about those little oil additive bottles?
i used one in my old car (rover 414...1990!) and it made a world of difference.
had the rover serviced, then 2 months later, used the little additive bottle, the engine warmed up faster, held a slightly lower temp on the gauge and ran far smoother and quieter. really big improvement!

it was the greased lightening brand.
