How many times per month you add engine oil? Once, twice, or maybe more frequently? I think, that each car owner feels himself disappointed when he comes back to the shop for buying of another liter of engine oil. I would like to share with you my experience of oil burning prevention.
Not long ago I have bought Volkswagen Golf 1994 year of manufacture, gasoline engine 1.8l. I knew about some faults of the car, when I bought it. But all these faults can be repaired, that is why it did not embarrass me in the slightest. Also the compression in cylinders was unequal and previous owner regularly had to add the engine oil.
I measured the compression in cylinder after bought of the car. The result is unequal compression from 8 to 10 bars in different cylinders. Level of hydrocarbons HC concentration in exhaust emissions was 336 ppm (ppm- is unit of measurement of exhaust emissions). I spoke with specialists and authorities and knew that normal concentration of HC is 100 ppm. Higher concertation means that engine oil penetrates into exhaust emission. It did not surprised me, because I already knew about my problem of oil burning. I thought how can I solve this problem.
My neighbor, advised me to pour high quality and high viscosity motor oil. I followed his advice immediately and poured into my car synthetic engine oil Mobil, with 5W50 viscosity. Then I measured the compression and was inspirited- each cylinder has 15 bars. I was surprised by this effect. But I was surprised more, when saw that concentration of HC is 1700 ppm, I expected to see 100 ppm.
How did it happen, that after adding of high viscosity engine oil, the compression became ideal, but the oil burning was increased in 5 times?!
The answer was found in special forum. As it turned out, more viscous engine oil with no doubts keeps better oil film on cylinder walls, preventing loss of compression.
But if the cylinder is over worn, the piston “hangs loosely” and piston rings cannot remove oil layer while it moves down. Finally, viscous oil keeps on piston walls and burns.
The solution of this problem is to restore of inner piston walls. There are several ways of solution: from the old-fashioned way to modern and expensive dealer service.
I chose something in between.
I read favorable reports in internet, studied the information from the producer and bought metal plating oil additive. It’s full name is remetalizer RESURS. According to the producer information it partly restores worn surfaces. How it does it? Active metal particles fill micro damages of piston walls, restore cylinder forms and hermeticity of combustion chamber. The process of remetailzation looks like recuperation of human skin after injury.
And here is my result. I poured RESURS and drove 350 km. Then I have measured the compression and car exhaust emissions. The compression was the same- 15 bars. The concentration of HC was 74 ppm… Just imagine, how I was surprised!
I could scarcely believe my eyes! And made another measurement after several minutes and then again after 50 km. But the index was no higher than 75 ppm. Believe it or not, but it was true!
Here is my experience, made with special devices. This remetalizer does not influence on the engine oil viscosity. It does not interact with engine oil in no case, it use it only as way for reaching of piston walls.
Thanks to RESURS, I reached the result which I expected to have. The dipstick showed me the same oil level during whole car service period.
I recommend you to use RESURS to stop oil burning.
