Re: Volvo Penta 2002 Blow By

I think it is different stuff, but I'll check it out tomorrow at an auto parts store.

Re: Volvo Penta 2002 Blow By

My local auto parts store doesn't carry Bardal, so I checked out their website.

First off, I am NOT an engineer or chemist, and my opinion is just based on what I have seen happen in engines where I have used additives.

The Bardal website said that the "2" mixes with the oil and makes a "tough lubricating film" on the engine parts.

The Auto Restore has "stuff" in it that fills in worn/scratched parts.

I have never used Bardal 2, but I have used the Auto Restore. I have been very surprised at the excellent results I have gotten from Auto Restore - mainly a peppier engine and increased oil pressure (+ 3 to 5-lbs in a 6-cylinder gas Jeep engine with 225,000 miles) (also in a 4-cylinder gas Festiva engine where I ran it out of oil and the red warning light was coming on at idle. One can of Restore has gotten back enough oil pressure that the light never comes on at idle and the engine is running along OK)

I think - repeat think - Auto Restore might work better than Bardal 2, but that's only my opinion.

I would think - again think - for best results you should drain your engine oil and change the filter, then refill the engine with 40-weight oil and add a can of the Auto Restore. You'd be sort of chemically gluing your engine back together.....

At least that is what I would do to try and nurse the engine along until you can get to a yard/repair place.

Best of luck.

Use extreme care when trying to seat an injector with a hammer, even though others claim it works.

The bottom of the cylinder head is not too thick in the vicinity of the injector tip, and when heads crack it is often between the injector tip opening and a valve seat. Also be very careful that foreign material does not get into the injector.
