Chevy 5.3 Liter Lifter Noise And Motor Flush Solution How To

What do you think about this video?

Kevin Jackson: What did the oil pressure look like before teardown?ย  Mine ticks like this has 40psi ย all day long.

in motion: The 5.3 is the ls1 right?

7gen Virginia: Great video Brian! Suggestion: Use this sequence to clean the crud out of the lifters - 1. Solvent (Berryman, Gumout, etc.) 2. Light spray Oil (PB Blaster, Liquid Wrench, WD-40, etc.) 3. Rubber tipped air gun on the push rod ends to blow the crud away. Repeat the sequence 3 or 4 times, and of course change the engine oil & filter when you're done. The solvent is great at dissolving the crud, but the oil has enough viscosity to carry the crud away. Adding the light oil and compressed air really clears it out. Thanks.

Jordan Bronson: If anyone else is reading this now (2017). 1. Check your Oil, might be as simple as LOW on Oil !!! 2. Try cleaning it with 1 Quart of Trans Fluid + 1 Ounce of Gumout or Seafoam for every Quart of Oil. 3. Run that for about 10 Minutes..., if you hear LESS Lifters or LESS NOISE... YOU ARE IN GOOD SHAPE... Run that solution for 50-75 Miles, then do a complete New Oil Change + Filter. NOTE: In my case, it was just LOW on OIL and yea I freaked out like most People do, so try that first !!!

ejlebaron: Amazing Results!!!

I do most of the work on my own vehicles, but I'm pretty hesitant to get inside the engine. My 2005 Suburban suffered from increasing started out a small periodic tick and became a noisy tick I could hear when driving on the freeway. It was getting worse and worse. So, I was about to bite the bullet and take it in for whatever the mechanic had to do. this was not an exciting prospect. Would it cost $500? $1000? More?

When I saw this video, it gave me hope. I went and bought the carb cleaner and engine flush, followed the exact steps laid out in the video. After the oil change, I was surprised that there was no more noise, but figured that might be due to idling and the new oil. The real test came when I took a drive to a nearby city on the freeway pulling a trailer. Loads usually induce the racket if nothing else does. No Noise! After a half hour on the freeway and 20 minutes of city driving, I heard a very slight tick once while idling. I think I'll do the flush again at the next oil change.

Total cost: Under $10 besides normal oil change. I'm so happy! Thanks for this great video.

corneliu marian: This video helps me to get my car fixed, thank you for your help

JASON'S WORLD: Great Vid! This helped many people apparently, Great Job!!

Jamtommy1: Are you using just one quart of the engine flush with the old oil ?

Thomas New: I love love love...seafoam...
I swear by it through the air intake on every vehicle. NOT sure about turbo engines
And I have always poured half a can in my engine oil about 500 miles before oil change.
Makes the engine very happy. I use in my mower and all small engines also.
I have a 2007 Tahoe with this same 5.3 engine and the seafoam keeps the noise down to zero.
I used for 230000 miles in my last car -99 Acura TL through intake, oil and gas and in my new 2013 Hyundai Genesis sedan with the 5.0 engine.
Hard to argue with a product that has been around so long. And no I don't get paid by them...though I should

TAIT JENSON: man you are dumber than dirt. I didn't even finish the video

NebukedNezzer: When my 1999 6L LQ4 was new. it had a lifter tap for the first few min till the engine started to warm up. After the dealer free oil change about 6mo later. I changed to mobil 1 and a new oil filter. problem went away and never came back. oil has something to do with this?

g: ok so this sounds goes though..

tape three little straws together on the end of a can of carb cleaner..put it in the oil hole and hit three quick bursts about ten seconds apart..go to lunch.. come back and do it again..

then use your compressed air gun with long tube and rubber tip, and stick her down in there and give it a few blasts at around 90 psi.. repeat process skipping lunch break (unless you're fat and lazy like me) then a squirt oil in the hole, and put her back together.. should you desire, you can perform a motor flush at the same time, but it's not necessary

Gunguy Forlife: was a good video til 11:43....SMH

Ali Saleh: just use 1 quart of ATF it will quiet those lifters within 5 minutes

Josh Zotz: winning!

Daffy Duck: Will it be better if you scream ????? Seems to be common among Americans ?????????????????????????

David Martin: Ok, how about if you have to pull out lifters? Do a video on that

Dana Smallwood: The moment you see the bronzed over valve train components, order a new head. You have a cracked head. It is a Castech head which is well known to crack on the 5.3L.

Garrett BigBear: diesel gas... ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

kramden: too bad, the engine looked pretty clean inside.
