I have a question about BG Products and their 44K Fuel System cleaner.
I have a friend who has used 44k Fuel System treatment and he actuallhy works for BG Products. He swears by this stuff. Said that he ended up rebuilding an engine that had used this and everything was very clean and shiny, that is, the cylinders and the combustion chambers. He gave me a bottle to try. I guess it's $26 per bottle so this stuff better work!
I happened to talk to a co-worker about fuel system treatment products and he had a '93 Z-28 with the 5.7L. He told me that after he used this stuff, he lost the No. 1 cylinder. He thinks the stuff was too strong or cleaned the worn rings TOO well and I'm guessing ended up with a lot of blow-by. Then again, he did admit that his Camaro actually had almost 200,000 miles. He still warned about using he. We debated that it may only be good for newer cars and not a good idea for ones with higher mileage. I find it VERY ironic that this friend ended up "rebuilding his engine"... was it too good for his stuff I wonder?
I was wanting to use it on my wife's '99 Expedition that has a 5.4 Triton with almost 150,000 miles. I sure don't want to lose ANY cylinders!!
Has anyonen tried these products? Something this potent, would it be okay to use in her truck? If you guys need more info I can get the can and type the info/warnings/disclaimers and all that good stuff.
Thanks in advance!
