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.
The8TrackChap: Wow. The oil pan is pooping like a dog.
jojojeep1: that tic you here is the lule injection , that motor sound's good'
Lance Taylor: Excellent video, thanks for sharing.
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.
vza423: What was the next oil change like, how often would you suggest this
Justin P.: Not the trucks fault at all, clearly, the oil hasn't been changed in along
Jeff Burge: If it saves me money as opposed to buying a rebuilt one, then I'm for it! I
have a 02 Avalanche
Triangle Choke: Don't blame the filter on this mess. Blame the previous owner for being
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.
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!
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.
D. Owen: You're the man!!! I learn something new everyday!!!
roodmood1: adironackNY, whats your thoughts on Seafoam vs trans fluid?
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
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.
Austin Craig: Im at 305k miles, im running a wix with 5w30 and im having valve tap...
Warren Peace: This video reminds me of a bad Taco Bell experience I had. OOOO IT
rja777: Nifty trick thanks. I would have dropped the pan to.
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.
Jesse Woolard: I put trans fluid in my truck 1000 miles before each oil change and my
motors have over 300000 on both.
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
Ray Josephs: The filter has nothing to do with the crud...problem was the oil wasn't
James Brown: This is what happen when you give it a Hysterectomy, you get clots !!!
very good video and change you oil ....
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.
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.
Russell Jones: I wouldn't blame the FRAM oil filter. Someone must have driven with that
oil for 20,000.
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.
swaggerboy740: U are a really cool guy u give me hope
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
AdirondackNY: look at 6:40 but basicly when you change your oil & filter if it takes 5
quarts put 4 quarts of oil 1 quart of trans fluid run it for 300 miles or
so and change the oil & filter again
AdirondackNY: 45-50 C converts to 113-122 degrees farenheight but no matter what the
outside tempiture is the engine runs at 180 - 205 F depending on the
vehicle. the oil 20-50 and 15-40 is used in diesel engines using the 20-50
oil it has high oil pressure but also a hard time lubracating the cylinder
walls & wrist pins that hold the pistons on the conecting rods. 10-40 might
be better for you. no matter if the engine is running on the equater or
north pole in 10 minutes they both run at the same tempiture.
AdirondackNY: yea this was the worst I have ever seen and since this video 1000 miles
later the oil is crystal clear and no taps in the motor. if it can fix this
truck that was the worst it will fix any car..
ROB S: Thanks. I have a 350 with a sticky lifter. Sometimes ticks in the mornig
sometimes not. I will try this. Cheers
AdirondackNY: yes. as you see in the video I used synthetic oil that i took from another
car to use along with the trans fluid. & this truck is still going strong
today plowing snow
brett garnett: I have a 06 impala ss with 5.3 V8. It gets bad knocking noise when in 4
nosboostice: I leard somthing new today thanks for this video.
brett garnett: I have a 06 impala ss with 5.3 V8...i have bad knocking sound when it goes
to 4 cylinder mode,what could it be
tj55901: just shows how tough chevys are! , even with crap oil they keep runnin!
David Signorelli: I have a 2002 s-10 with 4.3 my lifters have tapped for along time but i use
castrol and change it every 3000 since I got it back in 2003 used. I am
having a problem with the oil pressure dropping to 5 or 10 lb at operating
temp 200F and I am getting a p0304 obd error cyl 4 misfire.changed plugs
wires cap and rotor still misfires. Oil pressure dropped after mechanix
changed intake manafold gasket. any Ideas?
AdirondackNY: YES the very first comment left on this video was from a guy that had the
same problem five years ago and his vehicle is still running perfect today,
this trick saved him $2200
jdmaccord97: omg! its like a horror movie
murilloesteban: well i put 4 of oil and 2 of trany noise still there after 250 miles should
i replace oil .check oil on stem looks good
Flippit1303: ok, since I have been driving I have only used Fram lol But you cant ignore
that Fram is one of the top oil filter companies for a reason. But everyone
is entitled to there own opinions. Diaper thing was funny though :)
