bob blackelk: Just a suggestion the Japanese run the syenthetic diesel through there engines supposed to be very good solvent run in engine for 5-15 minutes maybe add to regular oil for couple of minutes might deklog screen.
RAYMOND NATERLIN: You would think some people must have money to burn when you see how they treat and drive their vehicles. But then you see them eating at macdonalds and the fast food outlets like they have never been told the outcome. Then they are at the doctors office with high blood pressure and diabetes and who knows what just like your poor truck.
RAYMOND NATERLIN: i agree about most Fram filters these days but you have the Ultra on there and not Wallyworlds 2 dollar fram. Id say mostly it is just neglect. Hope my truck isnt that bad after i run mystery oil through it. Got a Suburban that had issues of wierd neglect and still sorting stuff out. Thanks for the fun vid.
Gregg Cordell: Also to add to it I agree 100% with Southlosbls and I change my oil at every 3000 miles . Chevy k1500 225,000 miles on it.
Gregg Cordell: Most oil filters are made with a bypass in them for the simple reason that on startup if your oil is cold some of it will not be filtered until the oil warms up some . This is done so that the motor will always have oil flowing through it. Do some research and you will find this out . The Fram is doing its job by letting the oil flow even though the filter is plugged . Somewhere out there is a video on just how much your filter expands on startup when it's cold . I never knew about it . So those of you that like revving your motor when you first start it , you might want to look into finding that video. Trans fluid doesn't do a thing except act as a thinning agent.
charlie hustle: I don't think its the fram. i think he has a blown head gasket.Thats exactly the same thing happened to my chevy my antifreeze kept evaporating.
Dustin Mills: Shouldn't that be a 6 quart engine? Why only 5 qt?
JJ Bookman: Running about a quart of Diesel fuel before your next oil change is an inexpensive way to keep those lifters clean; Diesel has lubricant in it so it won't hurt your engine.
Richard Alvis: wow, the bottom of that pit was as nasty as the engine
brianallen0826: the LS is one of the best ever...when people don't maintain them, then yeah..you'll have problems
Rickey Mitchell: My Lord! No wonder it was so bad!
Rickey Mitchell: it's a GM vehicle, use an AC filter. this problem was not caused by the Fram filter. The root cause was poor maintenance. its been a long time since the oil and filter had been changed in the engine. make no mistake, I am no fan of Fram filters.
Bigrich0g: you look like John Candy bro
Bigrich0g: Trans fluid is not a oil it's a detergent
Vlad Stepanov: Fram XG are some of the best filters out there.
350toocute: This was why the lifters where tapping..The sludge was from not changing oil like your suppose to.
MrBugsier5: reason the atf works, is that its thinner then the normal oil, and can get in to the small holes in the hydraulic valve lifters easier, it will remove the dirt easier then normal used oil, changing the oil wil have the same result as adding atf,, just refresh your oil and filter in time is the best solution to prevent crap in your engine, any filter will get clogged when you let it come this dirty, and the release valve wil open dumping the dirty oil back in the sistem, clogging passages and lifters...
Stephen Kayser: So yeah you put atf in the oil they will separate dumby the two of them dont mix as well as you think they do
steven whitmore: I use royal purple filters
