Default UPDATE!!!

Its now been over a month since it last smoked that I know of. I didn't use that restore because on the back it only mentioned about filling in scratches in the cylinder walls and stuff like that, nothing about reconditioning seals. I run this car like crazy, about 50 miles per day, maybe running it so much has done something, or the fact I switched to a synthetic blend oil. Its all good now!!

I still might buy restore though tomorrow. I haven't ruled it out totally. Like Will said in this post, it wont hurt anything. I am changing the oil again tomorrow. I have been changing it on a monthly basis or every 2000 miles. Keeping those internals clean!!

No its really seems to stay the same. I haven't notice too much oil loss. just about a quarter of a quart between oil changes

I like the fact that my oil is still somewhat clean when I change it. This way I know my internals are staying clean and that makes me feel so much better.
