I really see that stuff in a bottle as maybe buying some time and even then I've not had too much luck with results with stuff like Motor Honey/Motor Medic type stuff. I think it also it might cause troubles getting the stuff back out once you do go to really fix the problem.
I'd much rather to just fix the motor to start with. The longer stuff like that is allowed to go on the more expensive it gets on you.
Back in my teen POS car years I did try many of those things. trying to squeeze a little more out of an engine that needed some TLC. I tended ot replace cars much more often then also.
I ask a lot of my vehicles so I try to keep up on everything to start with. Fixing something not so big early is a lot less expensive then if I wait and try to use some quick fix. I pretty much drive the wheels off a vehicle as I am not in th best place to replace one if something bad happens. My 9 Jeep is well over 200K miles and still runs like new (almost) because I wont allow smaller problems to get bigger. My 130K 98 Explorer does run like new for the same reason.
