Sounds like a rehash of 1890's Slick 50 where you're expected to accept that the same forces that wear an engine can be used to restore it.

I cannot imagine a material as hard as ceramic being beneficial when added to motor oil unless it was VERY fine. Might be one of the "rebuild in a can" deals like are on the market. Only one that may work of those that I know of is Restore.

The only other thing I have heard of like this is the sodium silicate (water glass)-based engine sealers. BUT they go into the water jackets to (supposedly) seal cracks, not into the oil.

99% chance this is snake oil.
