2003 Mustang GT 5speed -zMax usage

Hello everyone! I saw this product, zMax, advertise on TV and wondered if anyone has used it or if ANY of this kind of product is worth even buying. Thank you!

the best plan is to avoid all fixes in a bottle. some are corrosive, some hold moisture, some just take your money. plenty of cars out there running perfectly fine w/o any additives.

The only additives I can/will recommend are water wetter and GM rear end additive.

Hmmm...I don't watch much TV.
WTF is zMax and what is it supposed to do?

check that...I'll google it.
But since this thread is about zMax, maybe you could tell us about it.

It purportedly adds horsepower, increases fuel economy, enables mini-vans to pass semi-trucks, instantly restores your engine to "like new" condition, removes yellowish tint to interior engine components (?), allows you to drive your jeep home after ripping holes in the oil pan (good call), leaves puddles under air compressors, wards off the devil, makes you invincible, and Carroll Shelby uses it.

What more could you ask for...?

Alrighty then. I don't know if you all were making fun of me or really trying to help. Ha! I didn't have the opportunity for a mechanic to look the car over before I bought it a few weeks ago and the day I brought it home, the passenger window messed up and wouldn't roll up. So ever since then I haven't trusted the car. If that makes sense. Guess I just need to take it to a shop and have them look it over for me. When I'm in town going 30-35 and just barely pushing the gas pedal she kind of acts like she's choking/coughing. Check the plugs maybe. Who knows!?!?! Ugh!

Trying to help man. Too many people waste money on stuff like that, expecting miracles. Same with the $40 chips on ebay that promise 30 horsepower.

Do a good tune-up and replace the fuel filter. Is the Check Engine Light on?

I'm not a man - dude! Lil country girl from Oklahoma. lol
No sir - no check engine light. I think I'm so used to driving an Impala for 5 years that this Stang is like a whole new animal!

Shanbanks is a chick, dude.
You can tell because most dudes wouldn't have "redheadattitud4u" in their signature line. I dunno, Rich...maybe you would.

We're not making fun of you, Shanbanks. We're making fun of zMax.
