Thinking I was screwed with a front seal leak, a bad one. I tried a bunch of products and this is the one that worked. I went from dumping 3 quarts to travel 60 miles, and after using the product 2 weeks ago I haven't had to put any oil in the car since. So I give this product a big up. The front seal cost is $4.25 and the labor it $500+ my 1998 Mitsubishi isn't worth $500. So now I'll drive it till it dies. Also the cars gas mileage went up by about 5 miles to the gallon and the engine has never ran so quiet ever, I don't know if the car is running or not. Bravo on this product!

        Comments about Bardahl No-Smoke Plus Stop Leak Oil Treatment (16 oz.):

        I've used this product several times in my Northstar Cadillac. Cadillac was blowing smoke out the exhaust and burning oil. This product stopped the smoking issues (which tends to upset off a lot of drivers) and reduced the oil consumption. Now I only use this product in place of oil in my car -- seems to work a lot better than adding oil which waters the product down.

            this stuff works very well on low mileage engines I have an 03 cavalier with bad valve guides. instead of tearing down the engine, I tried Bardahl, and it worked within an hour of running at the proper engine temperature. No more blue smoke, and no more adding oil.

                  My '89 S10 Blazer was burning about a quart of oil a week, after an oil change within a week the oil would become black, and had blue smoke upon starting of the engine. I used this product and my engine immediately stopped burning oil. I just recently did an oil change, and my Blazer has completely stopped burning oil and my oil stays clean, also no more blue smoke upon starting the vehicle.

                            Hi Corey, it's actually a good question! Yes, this Bardahl No Smoke plus Stop Leak should be added directly to the oil. You can add the product at oil change or between oil changes, as needed. The engine should warm and idling to ensure proper mixture of the product with the oil. Allow the vehicle to run an addition 3-5 minutes after adding the product for maximum benefits.

                            I am pretty sure you can operate the vehicle directly after adding the product. The stop leak will rely on the circulation of the oil in the engine to get to wherever there is a leak. It will come with instructions for use on the back of the bottle. Sorry, I was not able to locate them online anywhere.
