If it is gummed up in the ring area this will do the job at half the cost of the stuff you linked to. It's a diester oil that will dissolve the hard deposit in the ring area and the oil drainback holes behind the oil wiper ring. Pluggage of those holes are the main cause of oil pumping in tired engines. I used it to clean out a 100k mil E30 I bought.
