Not sure. Last time I changed my oil I opted for a 75000+ mile oil FILTER. Supposed to have some slow release crap in it or something. I think its a marketing gimick...pft...fram

I agree with your Mechanic in a can comment, but there are SOME products out there that can help in certain unique situations. But none are a permanent fix.
