Chevy Vortec Lifter & Valve Tap How To Repair It




What do you think about this video?

dmc31405: I'm completely amazed that there was no metal shavings seen in that filter. To bad you didn't do an analysis on that oil. Nice tutorial for cleaning out an abused motor and quieting the lifters.

JIMBO SLICE: Probably previous owner kept topping off a common chevy motor that leaks instead of doing oil changes, and all the heavy build up just sat in the oil pan.

sirtanon1: So many things wrong with what he's saying.

1 - The reason that sludge is so bad is because the previous owner NEGLECTED the engine and didn't change the oil. This is not caused by the filter.
2 - No, Trans fluid does NOT have a super high detergency. In fact, lab analysis indicates that ATF fluid has a much LOWER level of detergency than any modern motor oil - only approximately 25% as much.
3 - With the level of neglect going on in that engine, ANY filter would have gunked up like that. A cheap Fram, a NAPA, a Puro, or even an expensive Mobil-1 or Royal Purple. It wouldn't have mattered. That sludge was there because the oil was completely worn out and the engine neglected.

David Garcia: and when is cheap oil you change your oil even frequent

Shaun Sharpe: Just tried seafoam, no luck. Then poured a quart of transmission fluid. About 2 and half minutes later knocking was completely gone, oil pressure was back perfectly. My knock was much worse than this video.

weeral1: I feel the same way about Fram filters... but to be fair ANY filter would have choked on all that.

Bobby Bentley: just by the looks of the engine compartment you can tell he doesn't take care of crap regularly.

Bobby Bentley: that's what everyone who doesn't change their oil on a regular basis does blame the oil or filter funny crap

Leroy Brodian: I've never seen a fram do that. i believe the mixing trans fluid with the oil and running it hot,causes a chemical reaction and clumping up the oil. i have herd of mixing the oil with trans fluid to clean the engine,but i think it's best to stick with an engine flush. now all that clumping oil may have left sludge in the engine. big mess.

Dessoville 739: I wanna try this on my '04 Buick Rainer Cxl Plus with the 4.2 Vortec Inline 6 Cylinder. also I gotta fix the lost compression issue. I wanna have a challenge as my backup vehicle.

David Garcia: I don't blame the truck I blame the owner don't change the oil that's what happens you stop using that cheap-ass oil

southlosbls: change your oil when you're supposed to and this won't happen. It has nothing to do with the filter. The oil must've not been changed in a long time!! Personally I use AC Delco not a big fan of frame, but that's just issues of neglect for so long.

Ross Campbell: i use fram filters and thats not a filter problem .... you mentioned a clot i think that
maybe the name and nature of who ever didnt look after their engine ..go figure

toyota38: That is not a filter problem, also that engine holds 6 quarts of oil not 5 quarts!

King Ding a ling: I bought my 4x4 a year ago and watched this vid, it worked well for me. Chunks were falling out. Now it gets changed every 3000. Thanks for the tip. Year and 1/2 later and still runs great. 294,545 miles

beverly weatherly: The trick is to change us oil when ur supposed to

Ernie Maio Jr: boch oil filter's i use them on all my car's thay are good not made of cardbord like fram there almost $20 but its good quality

freddie fernandez: this is not my vehicle but the one i acquired meaning it is yours now. hahaha a funny way of using semantics. LOL besides a filter including any brand can only do so much. neglecting any engine will lead to the condition you have just shown.

Kenneth Richner: my 2001 Yukon has 278000 miles on it I only use pure synthetics! the inside of the motor looks like new, I just had the heads off because of a weak lifter u changed them all, it's all in the way you take care of it and were you live my Yukon is a southern vehicle never saw road SALT! the problem with flushing a motor that way is you could block up motors veins with junk starving parts of the motor that's why they say never to put a high detergent oil in a high mileage motor that has had cheep oil in it all it's life unless your prepared to do a full rebuild when it fails. it's no different than a blocked artery in a person knock the clot loose and it could kill you!! if you're not prepared for the worst!
