Great Compression Stats


Just completed my 2nd Auto-Rx application. I don’t know that there are enough superlatives to express how pleased I am with Auto-Rx in a 1997 Taurus 3.0 Vulcan, heavily coked piston rings, very poor compression. There were two applications of Auto-Rx. First was an experiment with Frank and Gary; second was a traditional treatment. The initial test was 2x the dose for 1K miles, followed by a 2K-mile rinse. The second application was at 90k miles with 2.5K-mile application and 2.5K-mile rinse. The final result? All cylinders are now at full compression! The last lagging cylinder (#5) is now up over 180psi in yesterday’s compression test, along with all the rest. The chart shown is a recap of the compression in psi, with each reading taken at the beginning of the event. Auto-Rx flat works. Period. While it cannot reconstruct worn metal, it sure can do nearly anything related to byproduct contamination. The only thing I regret is that I didn’t take the pistons out for pictures of the coking and then reinstall them and run the Auto-Rx. On the bright side, I didn’t have to, because the Auto-Rx did all the work for me! And that’s the whole point, isn’t it? Why tear down an engine to repair the cumulative effects of combustion byproducts when Auto-Rx can do it for you! It’s beyond any competition in the market, and it deserves all the praise it garners.
