lets see $8 for a can of restore in an engine that he doesn't want to rebuild to help with reducing oil burn. Sounds like a good idea. Or he could dump over a grand into rebuilding a motor. Id go with the $8 save your money and get the engine you want. I can tell you from experience that restore does a nice job of reducing oil burn. Just for fun used it in a 4 stroke lawn mower engine. It stopped all noticeable oil burn
should you substitute one can for a quart of oil when i change my oil next?
and should i leave this in for the full 3000 mile interval?...
As I said, the can will tell you everything you need to know. It's 11 oz (about 1/3 of a quart), so it will not replace an entire quart of oil, and you can generally add it without overfilling the crankcase. Basically, just substitute the can of RESTORE for 1/3 quart of your usual oil at the next oil change.
As for leaving it in, you treat it just like the rest of your oil.
im burning oil when i rev past 4000 rpm's.... not much but i can see a light cloud behind me.
the reason why this started was because i ran some seafoam through my IM..... i will never reccomend using that on a higher mileage engine because im assuming it decomposed the carbon that has been acting like a seal on my 185k mile engine.
You can also try Castrol for higher mileage engines.
Sorry to hear the bad thing about Seafoam. I used it in my D16 with 200K and no problems. But yeah you do take a chance. I have heard some good results from the restorer too.
If you spent the time to fix it.... Fix it better than it was!
i dont trust any of that **** personally. if i were you , id switch like was said to high mileage oil , and up the grade to 10W30 instead of 5. stay away from that stupid *** seafoam ****. anything you put in your engine besides oil is most likely no good. if you changed your oil when you should , you shouldnt need such things.

Please do some research on oil before you post things like this. 10w 30 is no different then 5w 30 in the summer.
Whats the point? Just take the block apart and replace the piston rings and valve seals. You will always burn some amount of oil, so just leave it if you don't want to rebuild it.

and BTW, Burning oil can also be caused by Worn Valve stem seals
he said hes only keeping the motor for a short time so putting the money into a rebuild is pointless for his situation compared to a quickfix... unless he was reselling the motor after he did swapor whatnot
new post but still nub status so cant post for a few hours
HCIVICSI23 your right man i miss read what you said and we basically said 6 one way half dozen the other ... if he wanted to do anything jsut quickfix it... or just buck up and deal with it til he gets rid of it... sorry for the mixup

Rislone Ring Seal reduces oil burning and exhaust smoke by increasing the viscosity of motor oil. Quiets noisy engines by increasing oil thickness and providing a cushion between worn parts. Contains high shear polymers which provide a seal for worn pistons and rings to help regain lost compression. For use in all internal combustion engines. May be used with all petroleum based motor oils.
Re: Best additive for oil burning? (standbackimapro)
dont even waste your money. I had the same problem, and I tried everything. Additives dont work, you'll just burn that too and you would just be wasting your money. dont let the oil get too low or you'll break the cam in half like I did. just swap it out because that motor is junk anyway.
I have never seen a honda tbelt jump teeth with everything else set and working properly. Does the engine turn over like WAA WAA WAA WAA WAA or does it go WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE? Bent valves?
