I guess I worded that strongly. As I said, I ran the tests. I was actually hoping some product would work.
I had not heard of Star Tron until I had made a post on another forum about the problems that I was having with a dying motor.

Not being a chemist all some of us have is the recommendation from others. I have just started using Star Tron so in time I'll know if it works or not.

I'll email the makers of Star Tron with a link to this discussion and see what they have to say.
