Restore engine restorer, any good? Does it work? Increase performance? Should you use it with an oil change once a year? Will the engine last longer? Work for a smoking lawn mower?

This product certainly has been around for a long time.

It reportedly works in oil burners, and engines with low compression on their last leg. It fills cylinder imperfections with soft metals. It helps raise compression and reduce oil consumption. It is supposed to pass through the filter, but the engine must be treated with the stuff at every oil change. I know a few people that have used it with good results, and I've read here it has helped some owners of oil burning beaters. It is worth a shot. I wouldn't add it to a good running problem free engine. IMO it's a last resort for an oil burning tired beater.

It didn't do a thing for a friends Sentra that used a qt in 1000 miles. Even after two applications at each 3k oil change.

I tried it in my Jeep for kicks. I wasn't having any problems with it but wondered if it would quiet down the notoriously noisy Jeep 4.0. It did run a bit quieter, but what I really noticed was pick up on the highway was much better. It normally was a dog cruising at 60-65 but a bit after the Restore went in it was definitely more willing to accelerate with light pedal pressure. I figured it had improved compression. Miles on Jeep were about 125k-130k at the time.

I had a 2000 Durango with a 4.7 that had an idle south of smooth. I couldn't smooth it out. Added Restore with an oil change and the idle became smooth, and stayed that way. I guess that I had uneven compression that Restore took care of. I like it.

It should probably only be used as a last resort.

It contains lead so if it's already burning oil, it's going to have some lead in the exhaust. Especially if it fails to actually work. That lead will likely poison the controls in the emissions system (like the catalytic converter).

On a smoking lawnmower? You bet! Probably one of the best things to test this product on.
Its hosed anyway so there is nothing to loose but a few bucks.

What engine/vehicle/OPE are you going to try the RESTORE in?

^^^This was my experience in a RAM 5.9 V8. Ended up plugging the catalytic converter. I guess it depends on how badly the blowby is.

I guess there are some success stories with RESTORE however, my experience was not successful.

I used to use it on a very high mileage Datsun 200sx. (250K). It worked great but only for about 1500 miles so it didn't make anywhere near a full interval. Raised the oil pressure 10-20 points. Smoothed the idle and made a noticeable difference in power. I used it in the summer when the idling oil pressure would make the idiot light flicker at idle when hot. The car ended up lasting north of 350,000 miles when it was driven to the junkyard for failing emisssions. Hats off to Datsun and that 4 cylinder engine from 1980 and its longevity even through the abuse I heaped on it.

Use Mos2 from Liquimoly. Restore seems to clog filters and not yellow metal friendly

Used it in a 84 ltd v6 with wildly varying compression(had a lope like a cammed v8) the restore evened out the idle a good bit although I used the v8 version instead of the v6 can.good luck

THis products works to restore compression and produce more power on old engine. However, it may or may not killed cat, because even on my old car, seems the cat just died itself from using normal engine oil without Restore, just half a liter consumption every 500 km from broken valve seals.

Since I've posted, I've used it on several lawnmowers. Stopped the smoking on several, smoothed it out, definitely was an improvement.

I would not use Restore in a good running engine. I would use it in a worn engine that I am unable or unwilling to rebuild, if I needed to use it for the foreseeable future. It improves compression and reduces oil burning. While it works, the truth is, it's just a band aid for engines that really need to be properly repaired or replaced.

Calling the company, it has, copper, silver, and lead. They say it's safe for catalytic converters and synthetic oil. However they don't recommend it for cars with variable valve timing as Restore is highly detergent and possibly may loosen crud, sludge, screwing up the variable valve timing. They say the variable valve timing is very sensitive.

I have a feeling it won't be the "highly detergent" properties freeing something up that messes up the VVT. I have a feeling it will be the copper, sliver, and lead plugging it up. There would be no reason in the world to even consider Restore unless you had a vehicle on its last legs, burning and blowing oil with very little compression.

Restore boosted the compression in our old ford rangers 4L.... its gonna tick over 300K in a few miles and it runs nice and smooth with decent power for an old bucket. The restore does make a difference. We got about a 15# boost in compression and it evened out all 6 cyl so it runs a lot smoother.

It isnt a cure but it's a pretty good crutch.

Project Farm did a video on this product and it brought compression in his old Diesel tractor up from like 130 to 195. It had a major improvement. He tests all kinds of additives in a couple lawnmower engines he always disassembles before and after including a compression test before and after.

One product I've always seen hyped up on here "liquimoly" had absolutely no effect on any of his several tests, although he admitted maybe it needs long term use to have any effect.

I never would have expected the results he got with restore because of all the opinions I've read on here, but I'm ready to possibly try it in my old engines. The Oldsmobile has slightly low/uneven compression (between 130 and 145 psi IIRC). We checked it 12 years ago before installing in my car and again a few years ago and got basically the same results.

I got 10 years out of it without any further degradation so why wouldn't I try a product that is proving to improve compression almost immediately and lasting long term.

Oh I just realized the video posted is the one I'm talking about. It's not an "ad" though as far as I can tell after watching like 10 of his videos he doesn't seem to be biased or paid for advertising.

I am glad to see some are coming around to realize its a real and good product.

It is a shame others categorically dismiss ALL additives as "snake oils". Thats simply not true. Restore is one of the good ones.

My thoughts as well!


The value of a scientific theory is its ability to prompt further study, not that it has any relation to the established facts of scientific reality.

Well, it might be good in some cases, to get another year out a beater that's on the path to the junkyard anyway, but's pretty clear adding Restore to a good condition engine is either useless or harmful.

How is that "pretty clear"? Source of that statement?

Restore does not harm anything. Even in older engins that still run pretty well it improves compression.

That's kind of my feelings too. I haven't seen any evidence that it does any harm other than in something with vvt.

I ended up putting a bottle in my Caprice with the 305. We'll see whether I notice any difference. Unfortunately due to weather I wasn't able to do a compression test before. If I end up trying it in my summer car which I know has slightly low compression due to age, I will do a before and after compression test. The Caprice idles smooth as glass so compression is probably fairly even on all 8 cylinders, but it has pretty significant cold start piston slap, and very slight oil usage so it has some wear for sure after 233k miles.

Its hard to argue with that. That difference is significant enough that it may well be worth trying on a bone yard refugee. Nothing seems to be harmful in it like chlorinated paraffin's so no harm no foul trying it and its not some $100 a bottle snot.

I have also used this stuff in the past and it does restore lost compression to old/worn engines.
If I was unable to rebuild or replace a worn engine and needed to continue its service, I would definitely use Restore.

used it on a 72 ford courier. Ruffle every 5 to 7 thousand miles, it starts smoking. Throw in a v8 size can in a very sloppy 1.8 liter, works great.

Can help with compression for a while, but the bearings will get black of friction by grinding out the "soft" metals embbeded to the babbit and the jornals will get all fine polished/scratched... Ask how I know that...

That's quite a trade off but if the engine is on its last legs anyway I guess it doesn't really matter, something to think about though before putting in an engine that really doesn't need it to gain just a few psi.

I have used it long ago. It works on worn out engines. Brings up compression, runs smoother.
