  • Skry Ghosty
    Skry Ghosty 8 месяцев назад @drink15 That almost happened to me. I had an engine light in my car so I went to get it checked and the "mechanic" came to me saying they couldn't figure out why the light was on so they needed to change the CPU to "figure out" the codes since it wasn't giving them. They said they would change it for $180 and it would take 3 days to be done. Spider sense started tickling and went to Auto-zone to get a check. Got the diagnose in less than 2 minutes and it turned out to be my catalyst converted that went bad. And that's why I watch Chris videos so I can learn to do fixes myself, save money and save myself the hassle of dealing with idiots like them.

  • Charles Putt
    Charles Putt 8 месяцев назад That mechanic needs to be called out. Talk about not having a clue. He can't even help the owner keep the car maintained. That crankcase is ridiculous.

  • Val Bigfish
    Val Bigfish Неделю назад No mechanic in a can will ever get rid of all that garbage accumulated from lack of oil changes. You use chemicals, somehow, someway, that sludge will block up oil passages, and it will self destruct in a very short amount of time. Rebuild or get a scrap yard motor. Better yet, do your goddamn maintenance so it doesn't get to that point...
  • pauljs75
    pauljs75 2 недели назад I think one old trick was to use an oil/transmission fluid mix, and run that temporarily. Not sure if that's always advisable depending on the car, since it could kick some big deposits loose and clog something else down the line. Also makes me wonder if the guy went to the same crappy parts-chucking mechanic for oil changes? What does that oil filter look like?
  • Juan  Suarez
    Juan Suarez 2 недели назад All you do is get a bottle of motor flush . Follow the directions on the bottle then swap out the dirty oil replace with new and repeat the same steps one more time . Purchase another bottle and 1 more time and that should clean sludge.
  • autolance gega
    autolance gega 3 недели назад Can you make a video of cleaning the engine sludge.. That would be great

  • aznnp77
    aznnp77 1 месяц назад I've seen someone run a bottle of "Totally Awesome" cleaner from the dollar tree in theirs. It works really well at cleaning grease, but he actually ran it through the engine for a few minutes (didn't drive it). There were literally chunks coming out of the drain pan.

  • Edward Thayer
    Edward Thayer 1 месяц назад Motor Flush works great for me! Something that bad and I'd do it 2 or 3 times and let it run for half an hour. Then use synthetic oil. And reflush it every 3 thousand miles.
  • vtsarkov1
    vtsarkov1 1 месяц назад Just spray it down with some soapy wooder. Just kidding, of course.
  • KingEversProduction
    KingEversProduction 2 месяца назад Engine oil contains detergents that would clean out the engine sludge. The correct way to do it would be to do an oil change using the cheapest oil. Drive it for a hundred miles. Flush. Repeat and run it for a couple hundred miles and flush again and repeat the process. After a few changes. The sludge should clear out and you can start using the oil of choice.
