Nick Jackson: So my 2007 Chevy Suburban 5.3L Vortec only when it starts up cold. It only last for about a couple minutes or driving barely a quarter mile then it stops, but it ticks a little bit. Sometimes more than other days and some days not at all. Would that be the same problem? And if so, how would I correct it?
HeadFlowInc: That's from years and years of not changing the oil, only adding to the crankcase to fill. I've seen this several times, what's amazing is how long the engines run like that! If you tear down the engine there will be hard flaking damage on the cam bearings more so than the lower bearings.
yonny1954: Man how can you blame that poor filter??!!! There is not a filter on earth that could handle that
Richard Valentine: Wouldn't the 2 dis-similar "oils" in and of themselves create a clumping reaction? I've read that before in print. Should be easy to replicate or verify that claim by the same ratio of new materials stirred together into a glass container.. (just to rule that reaction out). May only happen once heated.
Juan Bustos: Take the oil pan off I bet there's still a lot of sludge in there
Yanel Cordova Resendiz: hey i have a 07 tahoe i just got it and its ticking a lot and when i step on it the sound gets a bit louder i believe its the lifters but if i do the oil change do you recommend to use thicker oil? i have the oil right now and everything i have the same one you're using 5w-30 same brand but not sure if i should just go with the thicker one and for the trans fluid do you just let it sit there turned on for a few minutes before changing the oil?
Daniel Vazquez: Can I do this with ANY car..? Including turbo..? Really wondering about it.
RedWhiteAndBlueVideo: You say 5 qts. My vortec 5.3 takes 6qts. Maybe that's the problem, it's been ran a quart low.
Thelegitrager: So can I drive my truck with the transmission fluid in it until my next oil change or do I need to change it out as soon as possible?
Torie Williford: my 2004 yukon xl is ticking and i change oil all the time any suggestions.
Sherry Detla: Hey..will tell you if you put stop smoke. Or any other thick oil treatment..if your burning oil..that thick stuff is the product!! ...Normal oil until I put that stuff in..yup..and it globed out as per you video.....!
All2skitzd: Fram filters suck but it doesnt matter on a case like that because most of that isn't going to be picked up by the oil pump anyways. I would of liked to see the oil pressure on that turd. You was definitely smart to just that other oil through it first. Did you end up keeping the truck?
Jake “LeverActionJake” Zunio: There is nothing wrong with a Fram filter. They are designed to bypass the dirty oil if the filter becomes completely clogged... this feature is a logical innovation foreseen as it is better to recirculate dirty oil then to have the engine starve of oil completely. A filter Is only designed to be used between designated oil changes. The real culprit is the lack of preventative maintenance the previous owner had failed to provide for the vehicle.
Garagealleycustoms: Will a bad oil pressure sending unit make these engines tick or knock?
ok2bfreddyfred: I have a 2009 Corolla, with Synthetic oil... Its clean oil but the lifter does sound like its sticky... should I use synthetic ATF? or Regular ATF.... also is synthetic oil good to use...
GONEWILDFILMS: I'll buy that for a dollar. lol.
mustang geek: Awesome video. I have a 2005 Ford F150 with the 5.4L engine and like most 5.4's they tick also can I put 2 quarts of trans fluid in after I do an oil change or is that to much for a truck that hold 7 quarts of oil? And how many miles should I go before I change the oil out?
Fishing Guy: The sludge that you see there is from dexcool in the oil. Cracked castec head is most likely the cause.
Duwayne Cunningham: Fram is a bad filter, but this is caused by mixing brands of oil guy. Stay with one brand of oil after this engine flush. Also chevy has recommended lifter replacement at 200 thousand. the rollers will have play themselves. You may quiet it for temp, but you will have lifter noise return. Trans oil is an old used car salesman trick.
CRXUGLYKID: My truck takes 7quarts i have a trailblazer 4.2 hOw many bottles should i use ?
