    Amsoil Synthetic and ARX MD

    I thought I would share some information on an Auto-Rx application, not particularly approved by Auto-Rx. I ran a maintenance dose without first cleaning and rinsing, oops. The car is driven basically 50% highway and 50% city. I would also note that of the 50% city driving, 1 hour per day is...

    It is never too early for ARX

    It is never too early to start with Auto-Rx. A good friend put forth some testing data on running Auto-Rx on a low mileage, yet fairly old model year Honda Civic. I think the points to note are first the mileage gains derived by following the Auto-Rx application recommendations. Secondly the...

    Auto-Rx sales price about to end

    Just an FYI. The current sales price over at ARX will expire Labor Day, 9/1/08. Spoke with Frank last night and the discounted pricing on the order page will be adjusted back to the previous pricing of July 3. From what I gather the pricing will go back to the pre-Fourth of July pricing special...

    Auto-Rx Maintenance Dose at 15000 miles

    I found this topic over at the ARX Tech. Talk Center. I think it speaks volumes about the contaminants that can form during a new motor break in period and an owners proactive approach for a very young motor. Engines With Low Miles Don't Need Auto-Rx ( Think Again) When my Mercury Marauder...

    The bucks leak here

    I guess we all know or at least believe that maximum, or optimal ring pack sealing, or mating provides maximum performance in any motor. Maximizing compression has got to provide for better use of fuel. Of coarse we can either use this performance for economy, or our right foot can enjoy the...

    Seal Leaks

    I see that the string is closed on rear main seal leaks. I think everybody got it wrong. Its dirt and oiling system contaminants that cause seal leaks. All it takes is a small amount of crud to get lodged under the lip of the seal and the process begins. Seal failure occurs in stages. To the eye...

    1,000 into a RX Cleaning phase report........

    ARX will only help you with the cyclinderical seals. As in crank and cam seals. I would not expect to see the leaks in these areas until well into the rinse phase, or second rinse phase, if dual applications are needed. With the rising cost of fuel car purchases are much tougher to afford. Glad...

    ARX and rinse oil confusion

    To maximize the effectiveness of an ARX cleaning, instructions should be followed. Mineral oils, simple dino is the best way to go. As ARX penetrates into sludge and hard carbonized deposits it sets the stage whereby the deposits are now there for the taking into the host oil. ARX impregnated...

    Is the ARX Santa Coming Soon?

    I am hearing that the ARX people are going to send out X-Mas coupons, to previous buyers. Anyone heard same or any more?

    AutoRX in 125,000 Dodge Grand Caravan

    You would certainly not encounter seal leaks. You may find some renewed performance from the cleansing of the ring packs. You could certainly remove any top end sludge. You would put yourself in good position to extend the useful life of the motor. Do you have a particular problem with the...

    Auto-Rx Label

    Good clarification Frank. I understand this to mean that a 750 mile application is fine for lower mileage vehicles, or if you know that you have a sludged up engine. Of course, if you have a sludged up engine, then a second application, is neccesary in the next fresh oil change and filter...

    Scuffed Windshields

    Are there any products or services to recondition a windshield with abrasive scuffing? Scuffs are not felt by touch, but are bad news driving into a rising or setting sun. Or is it best just to install new glass?

    Auto-Rx pricing question

    I need to buy 4 bottles of ARX for household vehicle applications. What I can't figure out is: Why is it cheaper, on a per bottle bases, to buy 3 instead of 4. Is it true that the fourth bottle reverts back to the full retail? I know that the three bottle offer was to accomodate those who own...

    Auto-Rx in Auto trans.

    Recently purchased a Chev. Silerado with auto/overdrive auto trans. 2000 year model with 29K for mileage. Transmission developed severe overdrive chatter/slipage at 50 miles per hour, when lightly accelerating or climbing a grade. Second problem, when braking to a stop trans would act like I was...

    Auto RX at 400 miles in BMW.

    What does the appearance of the oil look like? Is there any engine noise during cold start, while the oil pressure light is on? It is possible that during the cleaning process the indicator light sensor may have become dirty. Are there any other indications of low oil pressure or low level of...

    Pre-unleaded fuel motors

    I have a 1968 Pontiac V-8 Motor that was degigned for leaded fuel. Reason being is that it required lead in the fuel to prevent valve seat damage. Currently I am running a Bardahl "instaed of lead" product in my fuel. I also run only a a couple thousand miles per year. I had also been using...

    Auto-RX cure Camry oil sludge problem???

    Jack, I have never owned a Toyota, although I believe them to be very good automobiles and trucks. I have read alot of previous information on this board pertaining to the same problem. My guess is that due to small passages for the oil to drain out of the top of the motor back down to the pan...
