Barnekkid: ATF in the engine? Never heard that one before. I'll try it.
TheBlackShadow270: Jesus Christ that's dirty. I would have poured clean oil in until it ran
out clean. Then I would change the oil, run it for a week and change it
brianallen0826: How long do u run motor with atf? Do u use a quart of atf instead of oil,
or just add the quart of atf.
Justin Gibson: thanks for sharing this video this is good to know. I just cant believe
someone could neglect a engine that bad i mean it cost 30 buck max every 3
or so months to get oil changed. Hurts my soul to see oil that bad...
vza423: What was the next oil change like, how often would you suggest this
Albone3000: frams might not be the best but they are adequate. whatever happened to
that engine has nothing to do with the filter they used. There is probably
water mixing with the oil and it will just gunk up again.
manny6584: And it still runs. wow
PR O: +AdirondackNY just a quick link to your video update for others interested
in this video:
Chevy Vortec lifter & valve tap update after using trans fluid
thanks for sharing this info, ill be using it on my 94 nissan 300zx na,
previous owners must have neglected oil cuase all you can see is
carbon/tarnish when you look inside oil filler neck. horrible. cant wait to
have a smooth running z again as i wasnt looking forward to ripping into
the engine to rebuild the lifters...
FireEffective: LoL- it was like watching an accident- I could not look away!!!!!! Napa are
What a bleeding mess- I agree 100% on FRAM-
Purolator Pure One- best filter
I run nothing but Rotella in all my engines, including bikes.
BurningTirez: This works great... I have an old 350 carbd that I dont really care about
rebuilding just yet. Had low oil pressure, valve tap, sludge... 1 qt atf in
the oil for 500 miles, I forgot about it but it runs better than ever and
is clean inside.
sixfittyonembitties: I've notices this sound in my 99 Camaro z28. Has anyone done this with an
ls1 like mine? I assume it should work. Also, what oil and oil filter would
be the best for an ls1? I've got about 110,000 miles now.
Mopar Nut: If it is in the pan, it didn't make it to the filter. Can't blame the
filter for not filtering what doesn't go thru it.
lowell curtis: The 1 quart of ATF and fill with oil trick works , been doing it for years
Scott Trigg: I have a 02 maxima that has a slight lifter tap I'm going to try the trans
fluid and see what happens
Lance Taylor: Excellent video, thanks for sharing.
lowell curtis: I got one like that, changed the oil and BOOM ! hahaha scattered ....olds
jewllake: YES! Fram blows. I use motorcraft, A/C Delco( non eco filters) wix,
Baldwin or Napa .
Justin Gibson: lifters will tap in any engine if you dont change the oil.. miles does not
have much to do with it i had a 4.3 with 350,000 and ran like a sewing
machine but the oil was changed EVERY 3000 miles and all that was put in it
since it was new was delo 15w 40.
Aaron pfannstiel: You can't blame the filter it looked like the oil had never been changed. I
only use fram oil filters and have never had a problem with them on my 05
chevy 5.3 that has 153,000 miles on it and countless idle hours.
jewllake: LOL looks like it is taking a long crap! I use about 1/2 quart of dexron
trans fluid every 15,000 miles and run it for about 20 before an oil change
as preventive maintenance. I also use marvel mystery oil. My 5.3's run
nice and quiet.
ScaleCarModels: Great vid just got a 06 sierra 5.3l with 47k miles and starting to hear a
slight ticking/tapping noise. I have learned a lot of these engines in last
few days regarding the vortec series of engines. Will keep this method in
mind just had it changed few days ago running synthetic now. Thx for
posting gonna keep eye on the noise.
jojojeep1: that tic you here is the lule injection , that motor sound's good'
The8TrackChap: Wow. The oil pan is pooping like a dog.
Russell Jones: I wouldn't blame the FRAM oil filter. Someone must have driven with that
oil for 20,000.
Jesse Woolard: I put trans fluid in my truck 1000 miles before each oil change and my
motors have over 300000 on both.
Lane Carpenter: That slop is what happens when you run multi-vicosity motor oil past its
usable lifespan, the viscosity index improvers, or polymers start breaking
down and fall out of suspension to the bottom of the crankcase and end up
plugging your oil filter, the oil goes through the filter bypass unfiltered
and the crud restricts the flow to hydraulic lifters, hence the clatter.
Justin P.: Not the trucks fault at all, clearly, the oil hasn't been changed in along
Triangle Choke: Don't blame the filter on this mess. Blame the previous owner for being
James Brown: This is what happen when you give it a Hysterectomy, you get clots !!!
very good video and change you oil ....
jim davidson: Rislone in the oil is all you need. Been around for a hundred years. Ask
grandpa and your dad about it. They'll educate you quickly on it.
roodmood1: adironackNY, whats your thoughts on Seafoam vs trans fluid?
whitenas: i dont understand why your knocking chevrolet. its amazing it runs as well
as it does with that crap comming out of the pan. if anything its true
testament to how well gm enginiers and builds its engines. you said it
yourself ...if you dont change oil regularly this will happen....it would
happen to any car with that lack of maintinence.......a chevy fan.
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!
Ray Josephs: The filter has nothing to do with the crud...problem was the oil wasn't
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
Christopheranheather: for all the Fram filter lovers yes there are junk google them a lot of
people are having problems with the filter coming apart on the inside and
going threw the motor and stopping oil galley holes up and blowing engines
up, we ran into it at the ford garage on a ford expedition.be me id run
motorcraft, mopar, or Purolator pure one or wix.
rja777: Nifty trick thanks. I would have dropped the pan to.
D. Owen: You're the man!!! I learn something new everyday!!!
swaggerboy740: U are a really cool guy u give me hope
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.
Austin Craig: Im at 305k miles, im running a wix with 5w30 and im having valve tap...
dezertsub: I have yet to determine if it is in fact the lifter making the knock I'm
experiencing...it doesn't make the noise first thing in the morning till
engine is warm, and ONLY does it over 2K RPM. I recently did an oil change
and used 4 quarts of 10-30 and 1 quart of the thick Lucas oil
treatment...still making same sound. What do you recommend, seafoam,
marvel mystery or draining a quart and adding 1 quart ATF? I only ask
because I see you've also recommended the other two. Thanks. 1997 Vortec
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
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.
skipwadoo: I'm betting the oil was never changed.
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
