Default Anyone heard of "Motorvac"???

Hi,

I came back from my usually trustworthy mechanic who recommended I get
a motorvac done on my 1999 honda civic for $150 (Canadian).

Nothing’s particularly wrong with the car, but I do notice some
hesitation when switching gears.

I just wanted to know if anyone’s heard of motorvac and if it is a
worthwhile procedure.



thanks for your help,
--andrew

I don't know personally, but Tom and Ray Magliozzi--the Car Talk guys on
NPR--think it's a good idea.

There are a couple versions, one for oil and one for combustion chambers.

Honda suggests not using this service.

They also recommend the "Wallet-Vac."

Here's what I found on GOOGLE where YOU should have looked;
http://www.motorvac.com/

It's some sort of fuel or oil system cleaning using their detergents.

Or at least asked if anyone has had any bad luck or something like that with
motorvac.
