I have an oil leak and the 1oz bottle has no instructions, the kid behind the store counter was of no help. Can anybody please tell me how much of this stuff I'm supposed to use? Thanks

One ounce doesn't seem to be that much, I would use the whole bottle.

Thanks JC1! I'm hoping someone who's used this stuff can tell me more. I've read that a little, like a 1/4 ounce goes a long way but I'm hoping that some real world experience can shed some light on this.

Make sure everything is clean and pour the whole bottle in.
