Video Of Ring With Carbon?

6 posts in this topic

Recently had an older ('96) Mustang and it started to burn a little oil. Mechanic said the oil rings might be sticking, due to carbon build up. His solution was to run an oil additive in it (don't know which one yet) and also was suggested that the car be driven hard, to burn it off. It seemed to work.

 

Question is, anyone have any pictures or video of this, before/after?

Don't have any video, but you can get similar results adding a quart of oil for old style automatic transmissions. Also helps to free stuck hydraulic lifters.
