djspawn00 Posted October 19, 2006 Share Posted October 19, 2006 I recently acquired an 02' gs300 with 41k on it, 8k miles later the engine sounds like my mazda 626 with 150k on it. A friend of mine said it was the lifters making all of that noise and suggested an engine flush due the the sludge that may be forming in the engine. Previous owner was a leasee and did not take care of the car. He recommended that instead of using the Gunk brand Motor Flush that I instead use a mixture of ATF fluid and cheap 10w-30, followed by an oil/filter change using full synthetic 5w-30 a couple of days later. Has anyone heard of using ATF to clean out an engine? He does own a lucrative shop that deals with only high end german, italian, and a few japanese cars but this just seemed a little far fetched. Any feedback would be really appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
