My 300SD is producing more smoke than I would like it to. The engine runs well, so if I can't fix the problem then it's no big deal, but I would like to run some Redline Diesel Catalyst through it to see if it will help. However, my engine has an oil leak somewhere. My tech told me not to worry about it, because the oil consumption is almost nill (about a quart and a half in 3000 miles with leakage). What I need to know is if using this diesel treatment can in some way affect my oil leak(s). I do not want to make it(them?) any worse. This may be a stupid question, but I would rather ask a dumb question now than replace my engine later. Thanks in advance for the input.
