Audi Customer Testimonial: 27 May 2011 - Audi Quattro Coupe 1987 - Just a few lines to once again say how pleased I was with my can of "German" (Very apt - as it's an Audi) Engine Restore that arrived today (thankyou). Having just driven home from work my car was nicely warmed up - which meant that the hydraulic tappets on my 24 year old Audi were quite noisy - within 1 minute of adding the tin the engine became smooth and almost silent. The car now sounds as good as it looks, so I am now looking forward to my car "purring" to the Classic Show this Sunday.
Kind regards, Barrie Marshall, Colchester.
29 November 2010 - MG, 165,000 miles -Thanks a lot for the rapid and efficient processing of my order. I received the engine restorer the next day and put it in the engine that afternoon. I carried out an oil and filter change and added the engine restorer as part of the fill, as per the instructions. I have since covered about 160 miles in the car and already I have noticed a marked improvement.
My main problem was that after 165000 miles the engine had developed quite a pronounced rattle from the hydraulic cam followers that got noticably worse when the engine was at operating temperature. The noise would get quite loud if the engine was allowed to tick over hot for a minute or more. I am extremely pleased to report that so far the problem appears to have been pretty much cured. The engine, now, on tick-over at operating temperature sounds pretty much like it used to when I bought the car 8 years ago with 90000 miles on the clock. I noticed that in the instructions it said that about 1000 miles of use would be needed to get the full benefits of the product, but so far I am extremely impressed with it and, on evidence to date, have no problem in recommending this to my friends and other classic car owners.

14 December 2010 - MG, 165,450 miles (follow up to testimonial received on 29 November 2010) - I continue to be extremely impressed with the product, as I have now done some further mileage in the car and the engine still sounds great when on hot tickover, instead of being quite noisy, especially from the cam followers, as it was before treatment. I've done about 450 miles now since adding the product and when I checked the oil yesterday it was still about as clean on the dipstick as when I put the new oil in. As a professional engineer, I've heard of all sorts of "wonder products" over the last 40 years or so, none of which ever lived up to the claims and promises of the manufacturer, including products from Wynns and STP to name just two who were always recommended as selling reputable products. The Ametech product is the first product of this type that I have ever used, and at the time with a great deal of initial scepticism, that has lived up to the claims of the manufacturer. I only purchased it, after much deliberation, because of the success I'd had with another US made product, K-Seal, which I'd used on the cooling system of my MG, and which actually exceeded my expectations as that also did what the manufacturer said it would. It was my experience of using K-Seal, now an integral part of my tool kit, that encouraged me to try the Restore, and I'm very glad I did.
Best wishes and a Merry Christmas, Geoff Bateman, Eye
01 October 2008 - Ford Probe, 1995, 110,000 miles - Dear njin-life, done over a 1000 miles had noisy tappets now its gone engine smooth as they come. thanks - topman1969 (eBay ID)
8 November 2005 - 2.5 Diesel Range Rover 140,000 miles - Dear enginerestore, Hi, I bought your product from ebay a week ago. It took just a week to arrive with the two Easter bank holidays in that week. I placed two of the cans of engine restore into my 2.5l diesel Range Rover which has done 140,000 miles and had slight tappet and camshaft noise. I put the product in the engine in the morning and then drove into London and spent the day driving in traffic. I covered just 75 miles and by the time I got home in the evening the camshaft and tappets were completely silent. I am absolutely stunned at the result, I thought that it would take the 500 miles before even a slight improvement would be heard but apparently not. Well done guys and I will be ordering more for my next oil change Mike Taylor - Leatherhead – UK

WHAT IS ENGINE RESTORER & Lubricant?
RESTORE Engine Restorer & Lubricant is a technical and metallurgical breakthrough, developed by an atomic physicist during the latter part of the 1970's and released onto the market in the USA in 1983. Since then it has sold over 150 million cans worldwide.
Engine Restorer works by repairing worn engines whilst they are running, preventing expensive downtime, delaying mechanical repairs and extending engine life. With regular use Engine Restorer restores whatever compression and power are lost and maintains the engine in top condition for 2 or 3 times its normal life.
Every vehicle's engine wears out as a result of friction during normal operation. This friction causes wear of the cylinder walls which leads to compression loss. Lost compression results in your engine having less power --- it runs poorly and has sluggish acceleration. It also can cause increased oil burning, exhaust smoking, and poor fuel economy.
RESTORE Engine Restorer and Lubricant is a unique engine additive that repairs those worn-out areas in the cylinder walls thereby restoring cylinder compression and improving engine performance to nearly new original condition. RESTORE is the only product that contains the proprietary CSL® formula. This technologically advanced formulation fills in and seals micro-leaks in the cylinder walls. The result is increased engine compression and more engine power. Independent lab tests prove that RESTORE really works to increase cylinder compression.
Inside each can of RESTORE Engine Restorer & Lubricant is a blue/green oil - a high performance neutral 30W oil containing detergents and corrosion inhibitors to clean and protect your engine - which holds in suspension millions of spherical CSL microparticles. Each CSL microparticle contains Lead (40%) dispersed uniformly throughout a Copper (60%) matrix with Silver (trace). These soft metals have been used in engine metal for over 100 years, so by using RESTORE you are not introducing any foreign substances to your engine.

It is important to note that RESTORE Engine Restorer & Lubricant does not modify the viscosity (thickness) or characteristics of the oil to which it is added and does not contain polytetraflouroethylene (PFTE or Teflon®), zinc dialkyldithiophosphate (ZDDP), chlorinated paraffins or chlorinated hydrocarbons, napthalene, xylene, acetone, isopropanol, ceramic (asbestos) substances, sulphur compounds, or any other chemicals which could potentially harm your engine.
HOW RESTORE WORKS
Friction and heat cause wear of the cylinder walls inside every car's engine. As a result of this wear, compression leaks develop between piston rings and cylinder walls. This gradual loss in cylinder compression results in less engine power, sluggish acceleration, oil burning, exhaust smoking and poor fuel economy. The same friction causes wear in other metal-on-metal friction-producing surfaces inside the engine too, resulting in excessive play between reciprocating and rotating components which in turn creates vibration and oscillation, straining and weakening oil seals and creating rattles and excessive engine noise.
RESTORE Engine Restorer and Lubricant is a unique engine additive that fills and seals microscopic leaks in cylinder walls. Each can of RESTORE contains millions of micro-particles of the proprietary formula CSL (Copper 60%, Lead 40%, Silver trace) suspended in a high performance motor oil. Engine Restorer & Lubricant containing CSL is added to the engine oil and is carried around the engine through the oilways. Wherever the Engine Restorer passes between two metal-on-metal friction producing surfaces, the friction forces the CSL particles into the sratches and groove caused by wear. Over the course of the next 1000 miles or so, the CSL microparticles fill, pack and seal the scratches, making the surfaces good again and restoring compression, power and fuel economy to the engine. In so doing, it alleviates and cures many of the usual symptoms of engine wear, such as blue smoke and high oil consumption.
Restore works to increase and balance compression across all cylinders which means a smoother running engine with more power, less oil burning and better fuel efficiency. RESTORE works effectively wherever friction and wear cuts scratches in reciprocating and rotating metal surfaces, such as cylinder walls, valve guides, bushings, bearings, hydraulic tappets and crankshaft. As a result, RESTORE has been known to cure noisy hydraulic tappets and even fledgling bottom-end knock.
Although RESTORE is added to the motor oil but it is not an oil additive. Why?
Simply, because an oil additive, by definition, is a product which is added to motor oil in the sump with the intended purpose of modifying the oil characteristics such as viscosity, detergency, foaming, etc ...
RESTORE is not an oil additive in this sense. It is rather an engine additive because it acts on the engine itself playing a double role :
- The CSL particles fill scratches, grooves and other worn out areas between friction-producing metal surfaces in the engine.
- The CSL particles provide maximum natural lubrication due to their high percentage of lead even under very high temperatures.
The action of RESTORE reduces friction and rebuilds metal surfaces, which in turn restores lost power and reduces oil & fuel consumption.
Using RESTORE Engine Restorer & Lubricant gives long-lasting benefits. The repair is 'semi-permanent' in that the particles become fused into the scratches by the dynamic action (friction and heat) of the engine and so become part of the metal surface that they have filled. They remain a part of the engine metal until worn away which, under normal driving conditions, would take about 10-12,000 miles of engine use. So, if you were to change your engine oil after 3000 miles, or even 6000 miles, you won't lose the benefits of the RESTORE treatment.
PLEASE NOTE as miraculous as its properties may seem, RESTORE cannot repair broken parts. RESTORE is not a quick-fix for mechanical problems such as bad timing, burnt or broken valves or rings, holed pistons, perished seals, cracked cylinders, glazed bores, cracked or warped heads or blown head gaskets etc. nor is it a substitute for regular maintenance i.e. oil and filter changes at the recommended intervals. RESTORE will not work in a sump full of black sludge blocking the oil pump pickup. RESTORE is a technological innovation that fights the aging effects of friction and wear. Please obtain a fault diagnosis from a motor technician if you have a problem that you are looking for RESTORE to fix before you commence a remetallizing treatment so that your expectations for RESTORE are not unrealistic.
HOW MUCH DO I NEED?
Ametech RESTORE Engine Restorer and Lubricant can be used in all 4 stroke petrol engines, common rail diesel engines and LPG engines. It is safe for use in turbo-charged engines and with catalytic converters. Engine Restorer can be used in cars, lorries, agricultural vehicles, construction plant, motorcycles (see note below about the use of RESTORE in motorcycle engines), marine craft, garden equipment, power tools and many other appliances. RESTORE is not formulated for use in 2 stroke engines requiring a petrol/oil mix or diesel engines which pump engine oil at high pressures to operate the diesel injectors (for example, HEUI engines).
How much Restore oil to use will depend on the size of your engine or the volume of oil held in the sump. For a first time application we recommend 20-25% of RESTORE to each litre of engine size. For example a 1000cc vehicle you would need one 250ml can of RESTORE, for a 2 litre engine you would need two 250ml cans and for a 4-5 litre engine you would need one 1 litre can. If you don't know the engine capacity but know how much oil the engine holds, use 10% Engine Restorer by volume to the engine oil, e.g. a tractor holding 10 litres of RESTORE would need 1 litre of RESTORE added to 9 litres of engine oil to give you the total oil capacity of 10 litres. Subsequent applications should only need half of the initial dosage.
Ametech RESTORE Engine Restorer & Lubricant with CSL® is usually available in 3 cans sizes - 250ml, 400ml and 1 Litre.
The following chart gives a good idea of the amount to use:
How Much RESTORE to Use

Add to clean engine oil in a clean engine (for best results, flush the engine first if necessary to remove sludge, gums and varnishes) and always fit a new filter. RESTORE is compatible with any standard mineral, semi-synthetic or synthetic motor oil, providing there are no friction-reducers (like chlorine, Teflon, PTFE or Moly) in the oil e.g. Slick 50, Prolong, Activ8, Motorup, STP and Wynn’s friction-reducers. Although RESTORE is compatible with the new range of ester based oils such as Castrol Magnatec, or racing oils like Silkolene R, these will slow down the Engine RESTORE treatment considerably as they contain positively charged particles which polarize metals and so prevent the CSL particles from adhering to the worn metal. If you have had friction-reducers or other oil additives in your engine recently, it’s best to flush the engine before using RESTORE. However, once RESTORE has worked its magic you can go back to your normal additive if you wish.
USE OF ENGINE RESTORER IN MOTORCYCLES
If your motorcycle has a 4 stroke engine and separate oil reservoirs for the engine and gearbox (i.e. a mechanical clutch) then you can use RESTORE Engine Restorer & Lubricant in the conventional manner by adding it directly to the engine oil in the sump. However, if your bike has a wet clutch, i.e. the engine and gearbox share the same oil, you should NOT add RESTORE to the engine oil, because it would go through the clutch and make the clutch pack slip.
If you have a wear-related engine problem in a bike with a wet clutch and would like to give RESTORE a try before going down the road to a mechanical repair, please call us on 0800 977 5682 or 01728 726620. There are different methods of applying Engine Restorer, depending on the type of problem you are trying to cure, but we should still be able to help.
