Reply To: Piston Soak

Thanks. I am trying to avoid selling the car (it’s probably not worth the engine rebuild / replace). I completed the piston soak, oil and sparkplug change, and certainly see/hear/feel an improvement. I did get several miss fires at very high rpms as I attempted to blow the crud out, but it seems to have settled back down. Check engine light reset and giving it back to the wife. Not sure how long any perceived improvement will last or if oil consumption will actually be reduced…I will report back here the results – one way or the other.
