    Hey, so i used this product after i started getting a p3001- cylinder 1 miss fire. originally i cleaned the egr cooler, egr valve and air intake manifold. Cleaned 1st time at 217k miles. I waited to long or didnt know i needed to. Anyways, i drained my engine coolant and put new coolant in the tank. Then i used half a bottle of this stuff and so far it has worked great. my mileage has been 1000 miles and my mpg has gone down 1 mile to 39. Not the greatest fix but it has done the trick for the time being. Let me know if you have any questions. ill continue to update the mileage. but so far it has worked with no issues!

    3259 miles strong, I don’t drive it much because of corona and military doesn’t let me go anywhere. I’ll get an occasional engine shake(possibly the liquid breaching the gasket seal) ive driven it probably an hour at most. Also mpg is back to 40. I keep my eye on the coolant just in case and keep some coolant on hand
