I have a 1993 Dodge Caravan with 262,000 miles. It is a manual transmission that I love.
It has been using oil for about 8 years. I have tried to stop the leaks many times.
In the past few years it started needing a quart of oil every 500 miles. Now it needs a quart every 400 miles. The engine does not smoke.
However in the past year it has started getting really poor gas mileage. I replaced the catalytic converter, replaced the O2 sensor, replaced PCV valve and had the vacuum lines worked on.
The O2 sensor helped.
But now my car is really losing power. A compression check showed that the number 3 cylinder was 75. The other 3 cylinders were above 100.
I am thinking of adding Restore but I am afraid it could also really damage my engine even more than it is now. It seems I have to replace my car but I would like to at least a few months to find a replacement.
What are your thoughts on Restore and the risks of using it in my car. I have always used 10w- 30 oil in my car
