Yes. This premium quality synthetic blend works with all types of motor/engine oil including regular petroleum, high mileage, synthetic blends and fully synthetic formulas.
This product works in four ways to help solve most oil consumption issues.
1) A specially-engineered seal rejuvenating additive restores seal size, flexibility and elasticity lost due to engine heat, age and high mileage.
2) An advanced seal polymer additive package works by building a polymeric film around the seal to help prevent excess oil from bypassing the seal during normal engine operation.
3) A superior detergent and cleaning package can dissolve gunk and carbon on stuck piston oil rings freeing them up so they can work properly.
4) Synthetic polymers can fill in small scratches and wear marks preventing oil from passing and being burned.
Yes, your vehicle is a good candidate for this solution if it does not consume more than one quart of oil per day. We have designed this product to work in all gasoline and diesel engines including turbocharged, EcoBoost, hybrid and even racing engines. This covers 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 cylinder engines in all cars, trucks, vans and SUV’s, also can be used in heavy-duty applications referencing the appropriate dosage level. This applies to a wide range of other motor applications too: tractors, boats, RV’s, motorcycles (including wet clutch), ATV’s, lawn equipment.
For most applications, the entire bottle will be used. One bottle treats oil capacity from 4 liters to 6 liters. Use ½ bottle for smaller oil capacity systems from 2 liters to 3.9 liters. In heavy duty applications and for larger systems use 1 bottle for every 6 liters. In small engines use approximately 80 mL of Oil Seal to every liter of oil capacity.
In most cases the oil leak issue will be repaired with a single dosage. However, for best results and to prevent the problems from reoccurring, use with every other oil change, or once per year.
No. Rislone Oil Seal has no particles to plug the leak. Instead, its technology relies on special polymers and seal conditioners to stop seal leaks permanently.
Yes, this product is completely safe to use in your vehicle. Keep in mind the main goal of the automotive manufacturers is to get your car past the warranty period. These same manufacturers also have their own private label chemicals which are sold and used at their dealerships. Older vehicles have different requirements than a new car which allows them to benefit from certain oil additives.
The most common cause of oil seal leaks is age and/or high mileage. The seal can also leak due to the vehicle being stored for an extended period of time. Extended storage in particular causes drying and hardening of the seal which leads to shrinking, cracking, and then consequently leaking.
For major leaks, you will see spotting, where you will find oil spots located on the driveway, parking space or garage floor. These spots are usually brown or very dark, almost black in color. When leaks first begin a dirty oily film will be noticeable on the bottom of the engine and sometimes even the surrounding suspension and steering components.
A few things can cause an oil leak that are not the fault of the seal or gasket. If the oil level is too high (filled over the full mark) or the PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) system is not functioning correctly, leaks can occur. The PCV system prevents pressure from building up inside the engine and if it fails, the pressure will cause the oil to leak. It is a good idea to clean or replace the PCV valve regularly to prevent this problem. Oil leaks can also be caused by severely worn rings or a broken piston which pressurizes the crankcase pushing out the oil. Lastly, which is mostly seen in cold areas that use salt on winter roads, is a rusted-out oil pan. For this issue, a pan replacement will be required.
Depending on the severity of the burning, the first thing you may notice is the oil level decreasing. If not corrected quickly, the oil pressure light may come on or oil pressure gauge may start reading low. There may be bluish (blue and/or gray) smoke coming from the tailpipe upon starting the vehicle, more noticeably after it has been sitting a while, like overnight.
One thing can cause the valve seal to leak that is not the fault of the seal itself, which is clogged oil drain back returns in the head. These are passages that allow the oil that has been pumped under pressure to the cylinder head for lubrication, to be returned by gravity back into the oil pan. If these passages become partially clogged, oil will fill under the valve cover, submerging or flooding the valve seals in oil, and they were not designed to work this way. The usual solution for this is removing the valve cover(s) and running a wire down the return holes to clean them out. This is labor-intensive and expensive.
Because of the Rislone multi-action formula, the solution has a custom additive package to work on any type of oil seals, no matter the type or material.
• SEAL TYPES
o Umbrella (Deflector)
Ring and Band
Ring and Spring
• SEAL MATERIALS
o Viton or Fluoroelastomer
The simple answer is:
A seal that fits around the valve stem and valve guide to prevent oil leakage.
The more detailed answer is:
A valve guide seal, also known as a valve stem seal or valve seal, is located on the engine cylinder head inside of the valve springs. An automotive engine can have as few as 8 valves seals, or up to 32. These are located on the intake and exhaust valves and have a pretty difficult job, as they need to allow some oil to pass (so that the valve stem and guide receive lubrication), but need to prevent larger amounts of oil from entering the combustion chamber to be burned. When too much oil is burned, the vehicle will consume oil, emit blue exhaust smoke and cause valve carbon build up. This is bad for the environment, and the emission system on the vehicle.
This product is incredibly effective against oil leaks, but what about oil burning? We have that covered too. There could be two possible reasons as to why your vehicle is burning engine oil. It may have an oil leak or you it could be burning oil during the ignition cycle. One common problem is if the cylinder walls are allowing oil to leak up from the bottom of the engine, past the piston and into the combustion chamber. So, when the fuel ignites the oil does as well, and then expels it out as exhaust. Before you know it, you’re dealing with an oil burning problem.
