Treating an Isuzu Diesel Jeepney

Engine type: Isuzu 4DR5 Diesel

Location: Baguio

GTO dosage: 4 x 250ml.

GTF dosage: initially 1 bottle, another bottle was added later on; total = 2

Noticeable Improvement: Smoother Engine Sound, Emissions Significantly reduced!

Witnessed by: GTO Group Baguio and Transport Coop. Officers


This video was taken without considering the privacy of the owner of the vehicle... anyone can contact them to verify what happened to the vehicle.

To save you the time and effort and also to prevent too much unnecessary bother to the owner with so much calls and inquiry, we are taking the liberty to update everyone about the subject vehicle in this video.

Recently, about 3 weeks ago more or less as this post is updated (01/21/12), This vehicle ran out of oil due to a physical leak at the oil pan gasket.

It is general knowledge that no engine can withstand to run for so much kilometers without oil lubrication.

In other words... the engine was ran for so much kilometers without oil due to the leak.

The bearings were replaced and it was top overhauled that costed roughly about P13,800.00 in both Labor and Materials.

The lesson learned: Do check the levels of your oil regularly especially if your engines or vehicles are as old as the one shown in this video.

GTO is not mean to cure everything... it is merely a preventive maintenance solution. It cannot cure physical gasket defects or damages... but it can recondition old gaskets but are not yet cooked/ overheated nor cracked.

A normal untreated engine will freeze or stuck up without GTO protection, which could mean - that the owner would have to replace the whole engine or its cylinder block.

Since this engine was treated with GTO, it did not freeze up, but continued to ran until it has reached the threshold limits of the connecting rod bearings which is susceptible to oil starvation.

The connecting rod bearings are always moving in a circular pattern which can throw out oil lubricants easily, and it is only when there is oil present that can be pumped into the oil capillaries... that these bearings are protected.

This only proved that GTO protected the engine from much further and bigger damage.

A used diesel engine like this would cost more than P50K.

Notes to ponder

NASA claims that the government could slow down worldwide global warming by cutting down on soot emissions. Studies by NASA show that cutting down on soot would not only have an immediate cooling effect, but would also put a stop to many of the deaths caused by air pollution. When soot is formed, it typically travels through the air absorbing and releasing solar radiation which in turn begins to warm the atmosphere. Cutting soot emissions would be an immediate help against global warming, as the soot would quickly fall out of the atmosphere and begin to cool it down.

Cutting back on soot emissions would buy us time in our fight against global warming. Soot is caused by the partial burning of fossil fuels, wood and vegetation. Soot is known to contain over forty different cancer causing chemicals, and a complete cut would offer untold health benefits worldwide.

Environmental conservation has always been a topic for lengthy discussions, but up until recent times, global warming and climate changes were vague subjects, with no hard proof. Not surprisingly, the previous lack of attention to these issues have created a very gloomy outlook on our future. So, considering all this, what could be the biggest contributor to climate changes through global warming? Transportation - the man-made iron horses, flying machines and sea monsters, so to speak.

The question we have now is how green is our transportation? The majority of the worlds' vehicles are fueled by oil (petrol, diesel and kerosene). Even if they rely on electricity, the stations used to generate this electricity use fossil fuels for power! Excluding vehicle manufacture, transportation is responsible for 14% of the artificially created greenhouse emissions, mostly carbondioxide.

Automobiles, trains and planes are all responsible for this problem, but cars are the highest impact-makers. They release approximately six times more carbondioxide than a plane and seven times more than sea vessels.

What is Air Pollution?

Air pollution is somewhat difficult to define because many air pollutants, at low concentrations, are essential nutrients for the sustainable development of ecosystems. So, air pollution could be defined as:A state of the atmosphere, which leads to the exposure of human beings and/or ecosystems to such high levels or loads of specific compounds or mixtures thereof, that damage is caused. With very few exceptions, all compounds that are considered air pollutants have both natural as well as human-made origins.

Air pollution is not a new phenomenon; in Medieval times, the burning of coal was forbidden in London while Parliament was in session. Air pollution problems have dramatically increased in intensity as well as scale due to the increase in emissions since the Industrial Revolution.
