OIL ADDITIVES TO STOP SMOKE AND OIL CONSUMPTION

My mudd truck in my sig is starting to smoke and use oil the motor still has very good oil pressure. Do any of you know of an oil additive that really works to stop oil consumption and smoking? Just trying to put off building another motor until after the first of the year. Yes I run the crap out of this little 350 in a heavy truck it has had a drink more than once. 
 
THANKS

    During the summer I saw a product that you put into your oil that did just what you where looking for, I cant remember the name, but it was kinda like the stuff they put in gas to make it better, but this stuff went in the oil. Good luck finding it.

    marvel mystery oil and sea foam

     
    Both these products thin the oil and would make smoking and oil consumption worse

    Lucas makes a heavy duty oil stabalizer, ive heard good and bad things about it. Its extremly thick. Its suppost to help with both of your problems. I dont know what grade of oil your running but you could go up to a 20w50 if your not already.

    pull your plugs out, put a table spoon of marvel mystery oil in EVERY cylinder. put plugs back in, let it sit for a botu 2 hrs. then bust er off. it will help reseat your rings if they arent too far gone. you will get a few more hours out of the motor. Ive done it several times. my chevy small block 400 started smokin in my 86 chevy. did this trick and it lasted 4 more rides....

    I am currently building another motor I will not have the money to finish it until after the first of the year as I have other priorities wife and kids christmas ect.
    Trying to get by a couple months that way I can just pull old smokey out and drop in the new motor. Not trying to fix it just bye some time.
     
    Thanks for the tips

    round here all the farm tractors as well as about everything else gets rotella 15/40,we got a ezgo golf cart and it was using lots of oil and since it has been switched it has been cut in half if not more.we use to run straight 30w in all the tractors and then my daddy started using the rotella and it made a big difference in oil consumption.it has some type of additive in it ,i think zinc ,,that makes it work the way it does.it also happens to be in my 450foreman also.

    rotella-t is made to be used in a diesel engine which requires thicker oil due to the compression being much greater. I run rotella-t on a gasoline engine when it starts smoking. but most of the time marvel mystery oil dumped straight into the cylinder will help reseat the rings if they are savable... heck man, if your running a 350, just getcha a rebuild kit and rebuild it one night... i know i can get a rebuild kit for a 350 for about 180 bucks... just a thought, and if its carb'd its real simple but im sure you already knew that.

    I wouldnt do it at all man... that stuff can be more harmful than good.... thicker oil is twice as hard on an engine on cold starts... I haven seen it but I have heard of engines snapping oil pump shafts in half running 20-50 in cold weather.  So imagine adding a 140 weight oil to it.... thats just about all the oil addatives are.  Being your already have problems I wouldnt try to make it any worse

    It was an alright weekend but everything was too thick.  I would just get it fixed right before doing anything else but thats what I do for a living is work on engines so thats my mind frame now days. 

    Get that little green thing ready.  The "DONK" will be there bling blinging!

    I work on engines every day for a living also just trying to put it off until its replacement is finished. But most of the time when i get home I dont want to turn them on my own stuff.
