    I believe most of these additaves have their place, but they're not the same as actual repair. Usually just postponing the inevitable. Just buying time or, worse, covering up a problem for the next guy.

    Anything except regular oil changes, using manufacturers recommended intervals and oil is nothing more than snake oil.

    These additives only cover problems and may actually damage modern engines.
