I heard there was a product out there that will really clean out the "sludge" in your engine and will make you gain a few MPG. Does this stuff really help or is it another fake product. If it is good has anyone used it and what kind of gains did you notice?

Some people on here have used marvel mystery oil. There's another product that some people here have used, but i can't remember the name. something like auto rx. I used a quart of transmission fluid when i did an oil change. The transmission fluid will accelerate wear. It'll loosen up sludge.

a better option is to have an engine flush service done. I did that with my old dakota, they hook up machine (made by bilstein) to oil filter port and vacuum to oil pan. run warm cleaning solution at 42PSI through system to losen sludge, etc. I had this done at pepboys, other shops offer similar service. It was $80 including proline oil change (pepboys brand). synthetics were an additional cost.

if you have alot of sludge you will see a drop in milage, cleaning it will restore milage. My old 95 3.9L auto 4x4 was getting at best 14 or 15, can't recall. after flushing i got 16 city and 23 highway.

If you've always used a good oil there shouldn't be sludge.

a pre-formed opinion, usually an unfavorable one, based on insufficient knowledge.....

Google Amsoil.
Go to the Corporate site.
Look at the line of products. Including engine cleaner.
Technical information on those products is there.

I never heard of 'Sea Foam' or 'Risoline' until reading about them here.
You might note; none of the Amsoil supporters has denigrated your favorite products nor insulted you for supporting them.

Take note, I don't feel the need to hide behind a pseudonym. You remind me of those 'brave' fighters in the Middle East...who wear ski-masks.

Marvel Mystery oil is way old school, been on the market since the 50's. I think it's more of an additive than a cleaner.

Risoline is a serious stripper! Have a sniff of that stuff before you poor it in, gives you a chem buzz.I wouldn't operate the engine very long with that stuff before dumping the oil.

Seafoam, also an old name, is great in the fuel system but again thins out your oil with solvents. Dan M. points out the best flush proceedure.

The Problem with solvents is chunks of sludge can break loose blocking oil passages and creating a new set of problems. Use with caution.

Phuck You,
Neat way to address someone in a friendly manner...
Have you ever told someone about something you believe in? A great Hamburger joint? Good band? Dodge Truck? Where you get your sharp wardrobe?
If you did, I'll bet it was because you wanted them to experience the satisfaction you got.
If you havn't, you must be the selfishest person on the planet.
I drove my Dodge truck half a million miles. The same engine. The same transmission. I use Amsoil. I offer the story so that, maybe someone else may benefit for the knowledge I had. And I paid for.
Would you rather I advised people to have my experience with my S-13? It required 2 engines to go 1/3rd as far.
Do I, a newcomer to this site have to remind you the purpose of this site is sharing information about Dodges?
Oh, when did I ask you to use Amsoil?
And, Phuck You, when you run out of words, why not rest a bit and wait for more to come into your mind. The computer will wait. You don't need to vomit all over the website.

Auto RX is a additive you put in your oil with a new oil filter and over 1500 miles it cleans the sludge. Then you drive a cleansing period of 1000 miles after an oil and filter change. After that you change the oil and filter again and you should be clean. It's then a good time to put in Amsoil or your oil of choice. Trucks with over 100,000 they say to do it twice. This additive is suppose to be better than an engine flush which is harder on the engine. Auto RX somehow slowly grabs the sludge and traps it over time in the oil filter. At least that's what I've read on it. I'm in the process of trying it. Does it work or am I gullible? Guess I'll find out.

just remember that additives are merely a bandage, and in order to eliminate sludge, a rebuild would be in order, and proper care and maintanence would need to occur to prevent reformation or sludge

Just an observation! I've never used Amsoil but I'm going to give it a try. There seems to be a love it or hate it feeling out there. Funny though, I've never read anyone slam dunking Larry for recommending it or using it. Maybe it's the commercial plugs that rev up the negative comments.
