SkilledEddie: I would be worried that those chunks of sludge would cover the oil pump
screen and restrict oil flow. I also wouldn't buy a truck where someone
never changed the oil.
Jeff Burge: If it saves me money as opposed to buying a rebuilt one, then I'm for it! I
have a 02 Avalanche
Warren Peace: This video reminds me of a bad Taco Bell experience I had. OOOO IT
videocoop: I'd be interested to see the oil change/drained oil AFTER the tranny fluid
treatment. I mean, if the original oil was neglected and the Fram filter
was crap, then I'd sort of expect to see clumps in the oil when drained.
But, I'd be very curious to see what sort of gunk the tranny fluid breaks
loose. Hope you haven't done another oil change on this truck yet - if not,
please video the next oil change and let us see it!
damonlee22: I don't think the fram filter had anything to do with the problem here.. I
have an 2005 Silverado 5.3 I've used fram oil filters it's entire life, and
it now has 293,000 miles and still running strong.
D. Owen: You're the man!!! I learn something new everyday!!!
roodmood1: adironackNY, whats your thoughts on Seafoam vs trans fluid?
vipervin1: I agree with Fram being a low quality filter. I have cut all of them apart
and indeed Fram is a inferior filter. However the sludge condition is not
related to the filter. No single filter would provide filtration to oil in
that condition. BTW I would definitely check the oil pump screen in that
azimmey: I don't see how that ran.
I recently bought a 2000 GMC Classic K2500 4x4 5.7 that was a company truck
with all the records and stickers from oil changes just faintly visible on
the windsheild with 100k on it. I have flushed twice and the oil comes out
clean as heck but the valves still tick, I hate it. It must be needing a
And that sludge is not the fault of the Fram filter.
Austin Craig: Im at 305k miles, im running a wix with 5w30 and im having valve tap...
rja777: Nifty trick thanks. I would have dropped the pan to.
Ray Josephs: The filter has nothing to do with the crud...problem was the oil wasn't
john mills: But be advised, DO NOT crank and or run engine with kerosene only in the
crank case as it will not provide proper lubrication and could be dangerous!
john mills: If the truck is not your daily driver, try draining the oil completely.
Next, replace the drain plug and fill the crank case with K1 kerosene and
leave it parked for 5days. Drain all of the kerosene and replace with new
oil and filter with seafoam additive. At next oil change, there should be
no sediment in the oil drain pan. I have done this before with good results.
fune2010: thank you very much for good information and help i really appreciate it
ERICtheLATE: filling oil filter for "first breath" was my favorite ... good vid!!!
AdirondackNY: if the knock is a sticky lifter that the cam is slapping the bottom of.
then it would help. the trans fluid works great for severe tapping and
clacking but for yours I would say try Marvel Mystery Oil in your next oil
change and stay away from Fram filters. I know of 2 trucks both have 4.3 V6
both were serviced every 3K 1 with 85,000 used FRAM filters & knocked like
your dads the other 255,000 miles was a NAPA auto parts truck and starts
with no knocks in the cold, it got Napa filters & oil
AdirondackNY: look at 6:40 but basicly when you change your oil & filter if it takes 5
quarts put 4 quarts of oil 1 quart of trans fluid run it for 300 miles or
so and change the oil & filter again
AdirondackNY: 45-50 C converts to 113-122 degrees farenheight but no matter what the
outside tempiture is the engine runs at 180 - 205 F depending on the
vehicle. the oil 20-50 and 15-40 is used in diesel engines using the 20-50
oil it has high oil pressure but also a hard time lubracating the cylinder
walls & wrist pins that hold the pistons on the conecting rods. 10-40 might
be better for you. no matter if the engine is running on the equater or
north pole in 10 minutes they both run at the same tempiture.
AdirondackNY: yea this was the worst I have ever seen and since this video 1000 miles
later the oil is crystal clear and no taps in the motor. if it can fix this
truck that was the worst it will fix any car..
ROB S: Thanks. I have a 350 with a sticky lifter. Sometimes ticks in the mornig
sometimes not. I will try this. Cheers
AdirondackNY: yes. as you see in the video I used synthetic oil that i took from another
car to use along with the trans fluid. & this truck is still going strong
today plowing snow
bmelo909: I have a 06 impala ss with 5.3 V8. It gets bad knocking noise when in 4
nosboostice: I leard somthing new today thanks for this video.
bmelo909: I have a 06 impala ss with 5.3 V8...i have bad knocking sound when it goes
to 4 cylinder mode,what could it be
jack london: not sure if it is good idea to run on it for 300 km.
tj55901: just shows how tough chevys are! , even with crap oil they keep runnin!
David Signorelli: I have a 2002 s-10 with 4.3 my lifters have tapped for along time but i use
castrol and change it every 3000 since I got it back in 2003 used. I am
having a problem with the oil pressure dropping to 5 or 10 lb at operating
temp 200F and I am getting a p0304 obd error cyl 4 misfire.changed plugs
wires cap and rotor still misfires. Oil pressure dropped after mechanix
changed intake manafold gasket. any Ideas?
AdirondackNY: YES the very first comment left on this video was from a guy that had the
same problem five years ago and his vehicle is still running perfect today,
this trick saved him $2200
jdmaccord97: omg! its like a horror movie
murilloesteban: well i put 4 of oil and 2 of trany noise still there after 250 miles should
i replace oil .check oil on stem looks good
Flippit1303: ok, since I have been driving I have only used Fram lol But you cant ignore
that Fram is one of the top oil filter companies for a reason. But everyone
is entitled to there own opinions. Diaper thing was funny though :)
AdirondackNY: the filter is not going to make any diferance in pressure, the thinner oil
will drop the oil pressure a small amount but not to zero. if you hooked a
seperate oil pressure gauge to the motor and it is zero pressure I would
imagine the oil is not getting to the lifters enough to fully open the
valves. I would be looking at the oil pump or see how that distributor was
put in because the cam turns the distributor that spins the shaft to the
carledward1968: Sorry Bro Fram hd nothing to do with that.. That was from somebody not
changing there oil regularly. I've used fram for years and never had an
issue. Besides that good video
AdirondackNY: I drained the oil hot, the chunks came out from the trans fluid loosening
it all up. the truck has good head gaskets. I sold it to a neighbor (and
told him all about it) he gave it to his brother who put a plow on it and
is still using it today.
Michael Outlaw: first Victor Uruena Yes you can Add trans fluid to any engine to keep it
clean Second if you stop using 5w 30 10w 30 and switch to a straight 30w
oil you will not have any more gunk in your motor . 5w 30 and 10 w 30 use
Chemicals to emulate a straight 30w oil it is the chemical break down that
causes the sludge build up
Austin Bishop: Toyota is really the only respectable one.
AdirondackNY: yes but you dont want to over fill it
NeilLB7: We had three at work ticking. All got oil changes every 4K. We used 10W-30
CI-4 diesel oil. High detergent. Very clean internals. Had ticking as well.
One locked up. All bad around 150K. Problem is oil pumps wore out. 2 were
saved with new pumps.
TheGMlover1: Does it still hold oil pressure and did you drain some out and put a quart
of tranny fluid or just a little bit
stchman: People need to know that changing the oil regularly is necessary.
AdirondackNY: I remember that was back in the spring of 2008 4 years and no more
problems, so much for that mechanic who wanted to do a cam & lifter job
James Erikson: Holy crap. I'm gonna have to do this to my Jeep... cuz its probably the
same way, since the lifters are probably louder then that Chevy lol. You
can hear it from way down the street! Almost like a rod knock, but I know
its not. Wow though.
SkilledEddie: dude your motor is taking a crap! lol
AdirondackNY: for the misfire I would test the injector and the compression for that
cylinder. the oil pressure I would test to see if the sending unit is bad
and test it with a direct gauge
AdirondackNY: I would change the oil & filter within the next 100 miles and frome here on
in ad a pint of Marvel Mystery oil to each oil change hopeing for the best.
but from what it sounds like you probably have a damaged lifter that is
beond cleaning & if that is the case you would need to replace it.
AdirondackNY: if the seafoam has stopped the tap I would say to wait untill the next oil
change to use the trans fluid. if inside the valve cover has black crud
built up the trans fluid will break it down over time.
murilloesteban: my chevy 02 same problem so i drain ....then put some trany oil to filter
then i ad 4 qt of oil and 1 trany.run for 300 miles what type of oil .my
sburban takes 6 qt. how many oil
