On RX7's we use MMO every once in a while to get rid of carbon build up and generally clean up the engine

what you do is take out the plugs, put some Meguirs Mystery Oil in (or ATF fluid if you have a seized engine), turn the engine over, put some more MMO in, put the plugs in, let it sit for a day, then run the engine for a while until everything smooths out. This process restores lost compression and makes the engine run like new

It's also a good idea to put a bottle of MMO in the gas tank when you fill up once a month

I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with MMO in their sentras?

check out z-max, that's what i used to use, then abused it, then destroyed my front crank seal, then kept using it, and for the fuel, try NOS octane booster off-road formula, cleans injectors and such, or also MOC, that's what most dealers use.......

Don't use Z-Max, it's just mineral oil. There was a thread about it a while back where the report proving it was only mineral oil was linked.
