I recently placed an order on Amazon and threw this in my cart: CLP-4
I was thinking that the next time I change the plugs in my Accord (which I plan to drive FOREVER), I'd give each cylinder an 1 ounce of this solvent and let it sit over night. My goal would be to do some cleaning/freeing up of the rings and ring lands. Obviously, I'd hope to prevent this car from becoming an oil burner somewhere down the line.
What do you think? Good idea? Bad idea?
Do you have a general procedure that you'd recommend? I was thinking I'd remove the plugs while the engine was cold and simply pour 1 oz. into each cylinder and let it sit over night. With the plugs out, and a towel over the spark plug holes, I'd crank the car over for a few seconds and let it set another few hours. Then re-install the plugs and drive as normal. That's what I had in mind....
I always keep a few cans quarts of Kreen around. Every year, the Accord get 1 pint in crankcase and a pint in the tank. I thought about using Kreen as a preventative soak, but I've so many great things about this CLP-4 solvent.
