Subject: Is it Possible to Remove Engine Sludge?
I just bought an older vehicle and I'm looking into cleaning out the
inside of the engine to improve performance. I've read that some of
these products can cause damage because the sludge is sometimes lifted
and could possibly reduce oil flow leading to engine seizure. I have
never used any engine cleaning products but was thinking of trying out
Mystery Oil. Is it safe?

Does any have any experience with engine cleaning products?

Sorry to hear that. NBC news in LA ran a story about Jiffy Lube and
the dangerous and dishonest business practices they are recommending
to car owners.

I've decided to lay off the engine cleaning products and just change
the oil more frequently. It's not worth taking the chance.

I personally had a very bad experience with an engine cleaning product and
would never, ever use one again. The additive I used went in with the
petrol and claimed to lift all the deposits off the engine leaving it
sparkling clean. What it didn't make clear was that all these lifted-off
deposits would then swirl around looking for some nice cozy place to block
up. My cylinder head gasket blew within hours of putting the stuff in my
tank.

I think the best approach is simply to change oil frequently.
Watch the oil on the dipstick.
When it changes to a dark color, change the oil again.

Engine cleaning products may get the sludge out faster, but if you
don't then change the oil, it won't be doing you much good.

Personally, I've driven a lot of older cars over the years and the one
thing I've done is to make sure to get regular oil changes.

My favorite car was a '76 Olds Cutlass.
(Well 2nd favorite. My most favorite was a '52 Pontiac, but that's a
different story.)

When I drove that car into the junkyard, the body was rusting away,
the radiator was leaking, the brakes were a disgrace, the steering was
wobbling, the muffler was shot and the transmission was scary.

The only thing in halfways decent shape was the engine.

Thanks. The motor sounds really good except for some occasional light
tapping which is probably due to a sticky lifter. I've read about
using tranny fluid and or Kerosene and doing exactly what you said.
Then add some cheap oil and cleaner and repeat the process.

After I clean this thing out I'll be using Mobil 1 Extended
Performance synthetic oil which in my opinion is the best out there.
When I put the Mobil 1 synthetic in my other car I immediately noticed
the engine temperature went down and ran a lot quieter.

Mobil one is the best, from what ive heard. Lifters are often cured by
tranny fluid. DO NOT push the motor during cleaning

The answer is no. Scientists have been trying to invent a way to remove
engine sludge for thousands of years and the over whelming consensus is that
it can not be done.

The answer is yes. Given enough time and money you can do damn near any
thing, including removing engine sludge.

Add 1 quart of tranny fluid to engine oil, run till warm, not hot. Do not
push the motor at all. You may want to do this a few times if the motor is
really bad. CHANGE OIL 1/2 hour after adding tranny fluid. Slick 50 will
boost compression and fill in tiny scratches on metal parts.

Thanks MMelia! Cleaning the engine sludge out with flushing products
and such is NOT recommended by most auto manufacturers. I'm pretty
sure it can be done safely by the home mechanic if the right
procedures are followed. It can be risky however.

Huh? He is not a home mechanic... lol. I was going to ask him if it was
a good idea or not. Good luck with it... whatever you decide.

LOL! OK, are you saying it's best to wait to blow a rod or two then
deal with the sludge?

No, it was a joke. My brother is a mechanic, I'll ask him about it after
I get out of work.

Usually when the engine blows a rod through the block allot of the sludge
comes out with it.
