Re: Which brand of additives do you prefer?

I dont uses any additives any more however I used to use nulon in my XD when the engine started getting a bit tired. It was a good product. As for Wynns, that crap will never get near any of my engines, its junk!

Re: Which brand of additives do you prefer?

Na it's just your avereage EA 3sp auto.... its a white sedan..... its in pretty good nick i haven't had a good look but it has the usual few dints here and there and the split dash....
his mother is a doctor and she gave one of here patients (an older person i think) some medication and one of the side effects meant they could no longer drive. so they offered the car for $2000 and my mate took it.
be pretty good if someone on here got a hold of it and did it up all cool n stuff lol... prolly be nice base for making an EA GT replice with so few k on the clock

Re: Which brand of additives do you prefer?

used redex engine treatment a few year years ago and it clogged up the motor, made it run like shit and made it over heat. took 3 oil changes before it was all gone. i know it was crap coz we used a bottle each in both the cars we had and after that they both went to the shit.
no more additives for me....ever. you just dont need them.

Re: Which brand of additives do you prefer?

Hmm additives!!

CokeTM added to Bourbon or cheap scotch.

ICE only with good scotch

Tonic with Gin

About it for additives, thou I have dumped a new bottles of Nulon into 250 sixes that were long past their use by date, it shut up most of the rattles.
