Drips and oil leaks.  RESTORE can repair bushings that reduces the flexing on leaking oil seals, but RESTORE won't repair drips and oil leaks on its own.  Try a good engine stop leak product along with the RESTORE.  Chances are that if your oil has been leaking there will have been times when it has run quite low resulting in extra load and wear on the engine surfaces.  Any 'stop leak' product that you use should not contain friction-reducers which will just work against RESTORE being successful.  If you have recently used friction-reducing oils in your engine e.g. Slick 50, Prolong, Activ8, Motorup, STP and Wynn's friction-reducers, Ptfe, Chlorine, Teflon, Moly and the new range of plant esters such as Magnatec and Silkolene R racing oils which contain positively charged particles which stick to metal, make sure you do an engine flush and add fresh oil and filter before introducing RESTORE into the engine. These kind of oils or additives work against RESTORE being successful.  However, once RESTORE has worked its magic you can go back to using your normal stop leak or anti-leak additive if you wish.
