    My adm car, dont know how she lasted at archy!
    What is the best engine flush available? Going to clean the head as much as possible with cotton buds etc, but Im afraid of doslodged depris blocking the oil return return pipes.
    Whats the best thing to do, oil flush & new oil obviously, anything else I can use to clean it up without perishing the seals?.

    been runnin castrol huh?

    diesel is by far the best engine flush you will get. mix 3.5lt of diesel with 1lt of oil, chuck it in the engine and run it for 15mins. drain and repeat

    it will clean out so much of that shit, might not get it all, but it will do alot

    Wow.

    Yeah i'd get as much as you can off then get a few bottles of cheap shitty oil and some oil flush.

    Change the oil without the flush in it and go for a drive, change the oil again and add the oil flush and go on another drive for 20mins or so and change it again with some quality oil.

    Hopefully the first lot should get rid of the larger shit and then the second should clean it properly. Remember to change your filters in between as well.

    I'm not saying this is guarantee'd to work, but its what I would do.

    No idea what oil it has been using, just got it, the oil was very fresh when I got it & still looks good. After limited milage. the gunk was crispy, also totally solid. Oil breath etc all blocked. The oil pressure seemed normal while driving...
    Couldnt believe when I took off the oil breather pipe & then the rocker covers.

    New to Aus/Brisbane, where do I dump all this oil afterwards!!!

    jesus....
    diesel.
    if you get rid of the bulk of it by hand diesel will fix the rest.
    as with dumping, im not a city boy but use a old oil bottle to catch it then take it to the dump?

    Im off to get a can of diesel, will block the oil drain with a rag & fill the rockers with diesel & leave it over night, unless I hear different by the time I come back,
    it shouldnt pass the buckets?

    Have cleaned all I can

    ive got a 200l drum around the back of the house, take like 15 years to fill, costs like 30 dollars to get it emptied or a 6er when the grease trap dude is here.

    but thats pretty serious, id do as much as you could with diseaseal and oil, then finish off with something nice like a wynns product or something,.

    as said, diesel is the best.

    have ytou overheated the car at all? extreme high temps will do this to the oil. its possible the thing was cooking and the temp gauge didnt show a thing....

    I think gunk like that can idicate an import that has spend alot of time in Japan traffic and no oil changes. I'm not sure exactly what causes it. I have seen Camry motors do that also.
