"I've been using CamGuard in my engines for more than three years now, and I'm convinced the stuff works." --Mike Busch, EAA Sport Aviation

CamGuard is an additive package formulated to address the complex and interrelated problems of corrosion, wear, deposits and seal degradation in piston engines. It is compatible with and designed to improve the performance of all oils including mineral based, semi-synthetic and fully synthetic motor oils in the areas of corrosion protection, wear reduction, deposit formation and seal protection. FAA accepted. Sold by the pint. Also available in a case of 4 pints.

Benefits:

  • Contains powerful multi-metal corrosion inhibitors that prevent rust and corrosion in infrequently used engines. Infrequent engine use can lead to rust pits forming on cam and lifter surfaces. This pitting can result in catastrophic spalling wear requiring a premature engine overhaul.
  • Contains advanced anti-wear additives to dramatically reduce the wear of cams, lifters, cylinders, rings, gears and valve guides.
  • Prevents scuffing wear from “dry starts” by maintaining an active lubricant film on critical parts, even after periods of prolonged inactivity.
  • Utilizes unique ashless deposit control additives that prevent the formation of varnish and carbon deposits throughout the engine.
  • Use in older engines allows component motions to free up sticky rings and valves, increasing compressions and reducing oil consumption.
  • Contains seal conditioners that nullify the effects of heat and time to keep seals supple, flexible, and performing like new.

Have. Used for the 700 hours we’ve owned the plane with good borescope and oil analysis results. Engine time now 3000 hours.

Most people thinks this product works
Its hard to believe that adding a few ounces of an oil additive would make an enormous difference or if it did, that the oil companies would not include this extra protection in their products to begin with. But after getting a "new" rebuilt IO 360 with a bad camshaft from Lycoming, and having to pay $6,000 for a replacement, even with warranty, I'll try anything if it reduces the chance of that happening again.

Increased compression, in addition to corrosion prevention.
I honestly have never dissembled two engines - one with Camguard and one without - that flew and hangared sided by side. I have to take the word of mechanics who tear apart engines and also own their own recip aircraft. They like Camguard. Therefore, I do too.

GREAT ADDITIVE
SEVERAL AIRCRAFT OWNERS TOLD ME ABOUT CAMGUARD. ONE PILOT HAS BEEN USING IT FOR MANY YEARS AND HE IS ALSO A AI MECHANIC. MY LAST TRIP CONSISTED OF 1500 MILES AND MY ENGINE ONLY BURNT ONE HALF QUART OF OIL AND WOULD HAVE USED A QUART AND A HALF BEFORE ADDING CAMGUARD. SO, I THINK THIS ADDITIVE IS JUST AWESOME.

Do you recommend still using an additive like Camguard?

BEST ANSWER: Yes. I use camguard regularly following manufacturers directions. My plane sits for long periods and camguard helps to keep all parts coated with lubricant. Every oil change and every quart of oil added I use camguard. Oil analysis will confirm results.
What size is the bottle?
Keith A on Sep 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Its a pint. I use two pints to six quarts oil every 25 hours at oil changes. I honestly believe in Camguard, great working stuff. I own a 1976 Piper Archer II and has 2258 TTSN and my engine runs like a new one.I have many pilot friends, some being I/A and A/P and all of them use Camguard. GREAT STUFF.
