I am intrigued by Kreen but the only valid candidate I have is my 2002 Civic with 186,000 miles that I bought new. It has had 5000 mile OCI's with conventional oils and does not appear to be sludged or varnished from what little I can see through the oil filler cap.

But I am willing to give this a shot. I don't have any problems or issues but the car is getting up there in miles so my question is this:

If I used Kreen in my Honda would I derive any benefit from it?

I would say almost ANY engine with that many miles on it could benefit from a Kreen dosage.

There's got to be carbon in the rings at that mileage, and kreen will cut it like hot water on butter.

Just follow the mfgrs instructions. Use it in both gas and oil.

Hey Bigdreama....I had similar circumstances with my 97 T4R. My truck runs like a top and has seen a lifetime of mostly Conventional Dino oils and a blend of Dino and Synthetic for most of it's life. I've kept it in very good condition and wanted to see if the engine needed to be cleaned. My T4R does not burn any oil between OCI's and that was not a concern.

Since I can't see past the black baffle in the oil filler tube....I decided to run a treatment of Kreen. For my first treatment of Kreen I used 18 ounces before my OCI. I put it in the sump only for a long 1.1K mile highway run at highway speeds. I changed out the oil and filter when the engine was good and hot and the Kreen and Oil flew out of the drain pan and left nothing behind. IMO...it really did some cleaning wherever dirt or varnish was found. I'm now running my second run of Kreen in the sump with about 750 miles on the treatment. The oil appears to be much cleaner with this second treatment of Kreen and I'll leave it in until I change out the oil. IMO...it looks like the First Kreen treatment did the cleaning. I also used 12 ounces of Kreen in a full tank of gasoline and I'm sure it found something to clean by the way the engine runs at a very smooth idle. IMO...you'll never know until you try it and see the results.

Well, I changed out the oil and the 2nd dose of Kreen today after having it in my sump for almost 1.3K miles. For this second dose, I had added 12 ounces to the gas in the beginning of the run and 16 ounces in the sump. Total miles on the oil and Kreen is just over 5K.

The oil came out pretty clean for the 2nd run which leads me to believe that the 1st dose got all, if not most, of any build up in the engine. IMO...the second dose was really not necessary.

Most of my driving here in Orlando consisted short trips and day trips to South Florida, Tampa, Daytona and Jacksonville Beach, Florida.

I'm quite please with the condition of the oil and the filter after using this Kreen motor tonic and my T4R is running smooth and quiet. I refilled the sump with 3 quarts of Mobil Delvac Super Diesel Dino, 15w-40 and
3 quarts of Mobil Super Synthetic 0w-20. This blended mix for a synthetic blend should get me going and hopefully last till the summer and maybe longer. I replaced my oil filter with an over-sized Bosch D+ for this current run.

Anyway...there you have it. My 2 treatments of Kreen motor tonic and I'm ready to roll. Judging from how clean my oil and filter were when changed, I feel confident that the inside of my engine is spotless and any varnish stains were removed with the second dose of Kreen.

I also changed out my Fuel Filter and bracket which needed a change in a bad way after 50K of driving. Between the Kreen and the new Fuel filter it feels like I picked up 25 hp with this service.

Just finished 1,100 miles of Kreen in my BMW. Oil was very dark. It was so dark that when I recycled it, the attendant said your car really needed an oil change. I tore the filter appart and was surprised to fine a fair amount of soft particles in the pleats. More than I did the first time I did kreen last summer. Well please with results.

I wanted to let everyone know what Kano Labs says on their newsletter I just received about Kreen. It says "Remember, it is only a modification of the Kroil formula, but it has the quality of dissolving the gum and tarring binders that cause carbon to clog valve stems and ring grooves.

All I know is Kreen works.

I've now recommended it to quite a few people with older vehicles that have lost their pick up here in FL. These vehicles have been on a steady diet of "Bulk Oil" from fast lube places and see a lot of stop and go driving. I've given them the literature and a empty Kreen can....it's up to them from here on out.

Update: Neighbors 07 camry I4 with oil consumption/sticky ring problems (has a TSB but out of warranty). Put 1/2 quart Kreen in the sump, 1/2 qt in the tank. Its been 1500 miles. Not a drop of consumption (usually at least 1/2 quart). Amazingly quiet. Wow! Thanks Kreen!

hahahahaha, good Bitog reply. You may now post one politically biased reference without charge!

But seriously, I still think almost any high mileage motor needs this stuff.

Same page buddy, especially for someone who bought a used car and knows little about the history of it.

I only need about 1 quart for my little 3.5 quart Civic VX's sump, right guys? That'd be around $30 shipped?
