    What do you think to this>>>>http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vauxhall-Movan...1%7C240%3A1318

    The idea seems to be a good one.....but not sure it works in reality.

    i used to have a similar one on a previous car and a magnetic sump plug, im sure theres plenty of places selling similar in the uk. im not sure if it did any good but for what they cost it was worth a try.
    previous car was 300bhp with 120k on the clock and still run 100% not sure it was all down to the magnets though
    i think it was more down to oil changes 2/3 times a year.

    The theory is right, but can't agree with some of their claims.

    Personally, if you are going to fit stong magnets, the best place to fit them is to the sump near to the drain. Especially if the sump is magnetic. This will mean that the oil has it's magnetic particles stuck to the sump BEFORE they even go through the oil pump. Remove the magnets and drain oil in the normal way.

    I have magnets fitted to my steel sump cars. I use the magnets out of an old starter motor.
    I can't say for certain what actual improvement they make, but the physics sounds credible.


    Yes, that's me doing stuff without any evidence at all. BUT I make NO claim whatsoever.
