Question RISLONE Question?

Does RISLONE Engine treatment work and have any of you tried it?
I have a wicked tick from the lifters will it at least knock the noise down?

Rislone is mainly kerosene, so for the price it would be cheaper to use just plain old pearled kerosine. If you want to clean out the lifters you can use ATF dextron 3,4 or 5 all have lubricity and will clean the internal engine very well. Drain out a quart of oil replace with ATF run engine for 1/2hr drain, you can do this several times and I have heard of people running it for up to a 100 miles of regular driving but if the engine is really dirty I would just let it idle and drain.
You can also put Seafoam in the oil and it will clean it out pretty good also, but atf is cheaper.

Hi. My company is Bar's Products, the makers of Bar's Leaks and Rislone.

Rislone does not have any kerosene in it whatsoever. Many engine flush products do, but our Rislone Engine Treatment does not.

Regarding the lifter tick, there is a very good chance Rislone will diminish or even solve it. You can learn more about our Rislone Engine Treatment right here, including access to its MSDS.

Any questions? Feel free to reply here or call Fred at 800-345-6572 x204. During the weekend our tech support is closed, so our Facebook page is very useful for helping customers with questions:

I am an old guy so you can take this or leave it. The previous poster mentioned ATF and ATF is a high deteregent lubricant, it will clean while it is circulating in your engine, but it will not clean a really grimed up one. I don't know about Rislone but it has been on the market a long time. As with most products if the are used as they are manufactured to be they are generally safe. I myself rely on Lucas products and have good luck with them.
Again with ATF I add a half a quart every other oil change, leaving out half a quart of oil. I sold my 92 Ranger over a year ago with 246,000 miles and I still see it often so this method can't hurt.
