Prolong Engine treatment

I have a 2000 Avalon with 130000 miles…how well does Prolong Engine Treatment work on metal to metal friction reduction?


#2

Let’s see?

The engine got to 130,000 miles by using regular oil?

And now you want to start experimenting with oil additives?

I just don’t get it?

Don’t you think that if it reduced friction, it would already be in your oil?

Just out of curiosity I looked up the stuff… and when I saw the price… .Yikes!! :scream:

It’s “snake oil”. From a very expensive snake.
If you want to prolong your engine’s life, maintain a good (even aggressive) maintenance schedule, monitor your fluid levels regularly, and don’t beat the car up. It’s that simple. You do not need expensive additives, nor will they help.


#5

You’re doing fine with what you are using onw. As others say, don’t start using “snake oil” at this stage when you really don’t need the stuff.


#6

If you’re Avalon isn’t using oil between changes, keep up the good work. You are doing exactly what you should. I imagine you should easily go twice the current miles with standard maintenance.


#7

I hear that motor oil does a pretty good job on protecting metal-to-metal contact in your engine with the additives it already comes with. I don’t think you need to add another additive to your oil.
