There is really no such thing as "Mechanic in a Can". What are you trying to fix? Some additives have small benefits as preventatives but rarely cure any type of problem.

Thanks wrenchtech.
No problem just wondered if these products helped extend the life of an engine avoiding future year and tear. Cheers.
