Engine Restore?

So.. my car has been running like **** lately. Honestly, I haven't really driven it in the past 5 months.

The transmission is completely f'ed up (don't expect anyone to know about autos) and the engine is leaking oil and running a little weird. I don't expect anyone to know what my oil leak is either, because after 5 mo and $1,000 I can't figure it out.

ANYWAY.. so the engine is running rough, shaking a little, and idles funny. I know I could play with my IACV and all that, but that's not a real fix. It's just a cover up. So I was wondering, what can I do to improve this? After 120,000 hard miles, it's just a bad engine. I checked vac lines, all that, nothing is wrong. So what do you think? Will engine restore work? Or should I use Sea foam or something like that?

PS- I just added in some kind of stop leak, hopefully that will work something for me.

I've used engine restore and supposedly its good for the seals, restores lost
compression. The same goes for Sea Foam.
I dont know, i didn't notice any real difference 1000 miles later.
I guess the placebo effect didnt work on me

Those two things clean out carbon and all sorts of crap that has been built up.

Give it a try, it cant hurt.
Let us know.
