My car’s gears are stiff when I change them; which product should I use?2021-08-12T06:43:29+00:00

Wynns Engine, Diff and Gearbox Stop Leak makes gear shifting easier by ensuring better lubrication, even at low temperatures. It protects mechanical gearboxes from wear and tear and prolongs the life of already weakened gearboxes. In addition, it prevents and stops leaks.

I want to add an oil additive to my engine, but my next oil change is still a long way off. Should I wait or can I put it in now?2021-08-12T06:43:29+00:00

Ideally, oil additives should be used a few days before an oil change. However, if the oil has recently been changed, it can be added. To do this, run the engine at idle for about 15 minutes to allow the additive to mix completely with the oil and take care not to exceed the maximum oil level.

I poured Charge! For Oil in my oil tank but the product was very thick. Is this normal?2021-08-12T06:43:29+00:00

Yes, Charge! For Oil is very viscous because it is composed of polymers that improve the viscosity of the oil at high temperatures. To promote its flow, it is possible to “heat” it beforehand by placing the bottle in the sun or near a radiator for a few minutes.

Does Engine Flush treat oil leaks?2021-08-12T06:43:29+00:00

No, the action of Engine Flush is to clean and restore the elasticity of the crankshaft, camshaft and other Spi seals. Under no circumstances can it repair a defective, cut or torn gasket. In addition, overpressure in the oil sump can cause leaks. It is therefore advisable to have the engine checked by a professional.

What is the purpose of a vehicle additive ?2021-08-12T06:43:21+00:00

An additive is a chemical mixture formulated to prevent degradation of fluids and prolonge the life of your car by solving issues created when using the car.

Who is the additive for?2021-08-12T06:43:21+00:00

to all motorists who wish to extend the life of their new/old vehicle
to any motorist who complains about a vehicle with excessive mileage that has lost power
to the owner of a recently purchased vehicle who wishes to protect it from premature aging
to any motorist who travels mainly in the city for short trips

How does an additive work?2021-08-12T06:43:21+00:00

Very simply: an additive is a product that, when mixed with an essential vehicle fluid (fuel, oil or coolant), will chemically treat malfunctions in the engine, fuel system or cooling system and protect the components afterwards.

How often should an additive be used?2021-08-12T06:43:21+00:00

Ideally :
– after every oil change for oil additives
– every 2000 to 5000 km for fuel additives

Can I use an oil additive during running-in?2021-08-12T06:43:21+00:00

This is not recommended. Running-in is a period during which the moving parts of a new engine adjust to each other, so it is necessary not to interfere with this phenomenon. We recommend that you use Wynn’s engine additives only after the first oil change. Fuel additives can be used during running-in.

Do I have to be mechanically gifted to use Wynn’s treatments?2021-08-12T06:43:21+00:00

Wynn’s treatments are very simple to use: 1) Open the cap on the fuel tank (for fuel treatments) or the oil tank (for oil treatments),
2) Pour the treatment inside, 3) Close the cap and it’s done!

Is there an addiction to additives?2021-08-12T06:43:21+00:00

My car smokes abnormally, which product should I use?2021-08-12T06:43:21+00:00

Exhaust fumes can be of several types and colors. It is essential to identify this smoke in order to determine its cause and to remedy it.
Black smoke: Carburetion or combustion problems
Blue smoke: problems with oil passage in combustion chambers
White smoke when hot : problem of water in the exhaust system.
This diagnosis can only be reliable if the vehicle is properly serviced on a regular basis.
Example: A clogged air filter can interfere with combustion, resulting in the emission of black smoke.
The identification of the problem will allow us to advise you on the choice of one of our products.

How to effectively reduce fuel consumption?2021-08-12T06:43:21+00:00

An over-consumption of fuel can have 2 origins :
– Too much friction between metal parts in the engine causing power losses.
– A clogging in the fuel supply system which causes pollution and over fuel consumption.

2 actions are therefore necessary to reduce fuel consumption as much as possible:
– use an anti-friction oil additive to increase lubrication
– Clean the fuel system and injectors with Anti-Pollution Treatment (Diesel or Petrol), then complete with Injector Cleaner (Diesel or Petrol) or High Pressure Injection Protection Cleaner.

When should I pour my additive into the fuel tank?2021-08-12T06:43:21+00:00

For a better mixing of the product in the tank, it is preferable to pour it before filling up at the station.

How long can I keep a multidosage bottle after opening?2021-08-12T06:43:21+00:00

In correct storage conditions, it will last approximately 6 months after opening. It is best to store it away from light or a heat source.

I poured a radiator cleaner in my cooling system and now it leaks. Why is it leaking?2021-08-12T06:43:21+00:00

The Radiator Cleaner is a descaler whose action consists of dissolving soft tartar which is both insulating and corrosive. The cleaning action has revealed points of corrosion caused by scale, creating micro-leaks. The solution: apply a Radiator Leak Stop that will seal the pin-holes caused by corrosion.

I poured a radiator stop leak in my cooling system but the leakage persists. Should I pour another one in?2021-08-12T06:43:21+00:00

The Radiator Stop Leak is designed to clog leaks in a cooling circuit containing up to 10 liters of coolant. The Radiator Leak Stop is made of vegetable fibres that can plug the holes up to 1.4 mm. If its action is not sufficient, this suggests that the holes are larger. Therefore, adding a second bottle would not solve the problem. It is then recommended to have the general condition of the circuit checked by a professional.

I need to change the coolant in my vehicle to which Radiator Stop Leak was added. Will the stop leakage action be maintained or do I need to add another one to prevent the leakage from reappearing?2021-08-12T06:43:21+00:00

The Radiator Stop Leak is composed of plant fibres that position themselves withinin the holes to plug them. They will drain off with the coolant when draining. It is therefore necessary to replace the Radiator Stop Leak when replacing the coolant to prevent the leaks from reappearing.

Why is it important to clean the injectors regularly?2021-08-12T06:43:21+00:00

A contaminated injection system leads to poor fuel atomization in the combustion chamber. This malfunction can result in poor acceleration, unstable idling and over-consumption of fuel. Injector Cleaner (Diesel or Petrol) cleans the injection system to restore optimum fuel atomisation, but also lubricates it to protect it permanently.

Are Injector Cleaner additives compatible with High Pressure Injection?2021-08-12T06:43:21+00:00

Yes, Injector Cleaners are compatible with newest injection systems.
