Seeing smoke? We can help. Our Ring Seal Smoke Repair (p/n 4416) is formulated to help stop blue exhaust smoke, reduce oil burning and prevent plug fouling caused by blow-by. We talk to customers every day about this, so we know a thing or two about the problem, its cause, and how to fix it chemically.
Blow-by is usually caused by gaps in internal engine parts resulting from excess wear. Rislone’s Ring Seal Smoke Repair contains viscosity improvers that thicken the oil film, filling these gaps. It also provides a seal for worn pistons and rings and cushions engine parts to reduce wear and friction. In other words, it’s a car lifesaver in a bottle.
- Stops blue exhaust smoke and reduces oil burning
- Cushions and coats engine parts helping to reduce wear and quiet noisy lifters
- Contains high-shear polymers which provide a seal for worn pistons & rings to stop blow-by
- Retains oil flow characteristics in hot and cold weather
Make Rislone Your Car’s Lifeline
We’ve all seen smoking cars running down the road. If you’ve noticed increased dark smoke coming from your tailpipe, or seen increased oil consumption, your vehicle is probably burning oil. One of the most common causes of a smoking engine is a problem with your piston rings. When these precise seals start to wear, they allow oil to pass through. This in turn means more oil in the combustion chamber than is necessary for lubrication, which leads to visible blue/black smoke from your exhaust.
Replacing your piston rings is a major job. It involves dismantling your engine and physically removing the pistons to replace the rings. Due to the cost, complexity and time involved, you probably want to avoid this unless it’s absolutely necessary. For many cases, our engineers here have created our Ring Seal Smoke Repair product. We’ve spent nearly 100 years perfecting all sorts of automotive chemicals, additives and treatments, including our technician-proven engine piston seal technology.
Every gasoline and diesel engine consumes a bit of oil. That’s normal. Oil is present to provide lubrication for the pistons and rings in the cylinders of your engine. Over time, as your piston rings and pistons wear, they start to allow more and more oil to seep through into the combustion chamber. This causes several problems:
Smoke: As oil burns, burned carbon releases a blue/black smoke that is visible to the naked eye. This is a pollutant that’s not only bad for the environment, but can also keep your car from passing an emissions test.
Contamination: The presence of too much oil in your engine combustion can allow soot to build up in your catalytic converter, exhaust pipes and mufflers. These are costly components to repair.
Consumption: Oil that’s making it past your piston rings is no longer in your engine to provide lubrication. Over time, your oil level will drop and you’ll need to top-off your oil in between oil changes.
Aside from the environmental and cleanliness issues a car engine smoking can case, the cost of modern engine oils is reason enough to act. Our affordable formulas are engineered to stop engine piston seal leaks and to keep your vehicle from smoking.
- How does Rislone Ring Seal Work?
Ring Seal contains viscosity modifiers and high-shear polymers which provide a seal for worn pistons and rings to stop blow-by. Viscosity improver cushions and coats engine parts helping to reduce wear and quiet noisy engines.
- How is blow-by caused?
Blow-by is usually caused by gaps in internal engine parts resulting from excess wear.
- How long does it take to start working?
Results will either be immediate or noticeable within a few days of driving.
- If first application does not completely solve my problem, may I add another bottle?
Yes, for severe problems or badly worn rings, a second application is recommended.
- Can I use Rislone Ring Seal in my diesel?
Yes, it works with all gasoline and diesel engines using conventional, high mileage and synthetic oil.
- How much do I install?
One bottle treats 4 to 6 quarts of oil for regular 4, 6 and 8 cylinder engines. For larger engines, use one bottle for every 5 quarts of capacity. On 4-Stroke ATV, Motorcycle and small engines, including wet clutch applications, use approximately 3 ounces per quart of oil capacity.
- How often should I add Rislone Ring Seal?
Add Ring Seal every 2,000 miles or with every oil change.
- Will Rislone Ring Seal harm my engine?
No, the product is completely safe to use and will not harm any part of your engine.

A must for an abused motor
Stuff works great. Person whom owned vehicle ran it without any oil at times. Duhhh. I have to add 1/2 bottle with every other oil change. Stopped oil burning right away. Rings/cylinders must have been scorched a little.
