    • Most engine oil formulas including Amsoil etc are historically keep clean. Not deep clean. Amsoil in past 3 or so years is making an effort at cleaning.    HPL is new brand and I’m brain dead from dementia from TBI in military so no more deep testing for me. So it seems from what you’ve shared and Grumpy tested HPL  can clean.  Redline was a very good cleaning oil before they went majority PAO. They just overkill additives IMHO.    The diester based oil that I can’t remember the brand name was a very good solvent.    The key question is what do you want to clean? Remember in chemistry like removes like. The carbon deposits for a particular engine piston ring system is mostly fuel related. Not just engine oil blowby.    Finally to answer your question no. Restore and Protect is formulated to clean constantly. 
    • Thank you for your service customboss.   👍🇺🇸
    • I wonder then if oils like Amsoil SS or HPL could clean as well as this Restore & Protect (current version not the older).  When Valvoline says they know of no other oil that can do this, I suppose they are referring to your off the shelf oils.   However, Amsoil SS and even HPL likely don't contain nearly as much high solvency ester as the original Restore & Protect that you were involved with formulating.  So maybe they can't clean as well as some have suggested? 
    • After using the appropriate OBD2 scanner I discovered that ABS codes don't necessarily reset once a correction is made.  For example, it held the code for when I disconnected the front left speed sensor during troubleshooting.    The underlining code for the new hub/sensor: C0040 - Right front wheel speed sensor circuit.  DTC Status: Signal Erratic C0040 - Right front wheel speed sensor circuit.  DTC Status:  Incorrect Component Installed After resetting the codes, all went away except the above.  I reconnected the original sensor and reset the codes again.  No codes now.    Hopefully resolved.
