Actually, if you have a car under warranty and the only thing
protecting you from a bad head gasket is some crud
buildup, I would be mad and using techron at every fillup
till the warranty ran out - that is seriously poor design.
I learned of the stuff ages ago when a friend (Volvoville mechanic)
said they would dump a complimentary bottle of this stuff in
every car that came in for repairs, its a generation above
the others for what thats worth, wouldn't surprise me if its mostly
Now, I do believe it may accelerate a problem but a well maintained
car has a reduced number of failure points and if you've been adding
this stuff on a decent schedule (ie one tank fillup before your
next oil change) then you've probably reduced your risk further.
