What is Engine Sludge?
Engines build up sludge over time from the by-products of combustion mixed with old burnt oil. Sludge is a black tarry substance which leaves baked-on deposits on the working surfaces of your engine and blocks oil-ways, eventually starving them of lubrication and, in the worst case, causing engine failure ("black death"). To illustrate just what sludge can do to your engine, watch this short You Tube video.
Alarming, isn't it? The causes of sludge are varied: hard, fast driving leading to high under-bonnet temperatures combined with the use of mineral oils; lack of maintenance, particularly failure to change the engine oil within 20000 miles; city driving - stop/go starting; an abundance of cold starts/short runs; engine overheating. Some makes and models of car seem to be more prone to it than others. Engine sludge will also invariably contain other contaminants - carbon deposits, metal debris - sometimes small enough to only be visible under an electron microscope, but extremely damaging to an engine as they turn the oil into a grinding paste.
If you suspect your engine has been poorly maintained or if you just want to keep the oil supply throughout the engine functioning in optimum condition, running a proprietary flushing oil like Ametech Restore Motor Cleaner through the engine is well worth while. Ametech Motor Cleaner will dissolve any gunk that has built up in the sump and any varnish, carbon or gums coating the engine metal and flush it out of the crankcase with the old oil. A badly neglected engine may need multiple oil and filter changes to be sure that all debris has been removed. After the engine has been well drained, fit a clean OEM filter and refill the engine to the correct level with a good quality motor oil of a type and specification recommended for your car and fuel type.
Ametech RESTORE Motor Cleaner is formulated to be quick and easy to use. It contains essential lubricants to protect your engine while the detergents and solvents efficiently do their work. Put it in the engine with the existing engine oil and run the engine with the car stationary for 10-15 minutes - that's all it takes.
For all petrol, diesel fuel and LPG motors, with or without turbo.
Compatible with all mineral and synthetic oils.
Before changing oil, pour 1 bottle into the crankcase with the old oil. With the vehicle stationary, let the engine run for 15 minutes, pressing the accelerator occasionally to alternate between low and high rpm. Drain oil. Replace the oil filter.
Fill the crankcase up again with fresh quality oil.
One bottle (250ml) treats 3 to 6 litres of oil in the sump. Use multiple bottles for large volumes of oil.
