Just bought car with 111,000 miles on 3.1 v-6 ,motor has sludge in valve cover and am afraid of low oil press . What is the best way to rectify this ? I have heard of the run trans fluid in engine trick but scared of locking up oil pump or worse engine . Runs good and no other probs just worried about low oil press .


DO NOT run transmission fluid in the oil. You can buy engine cleaner that you put in before you change the oil and let it run at idle for a 15 to 20 minutes, then change the oil and filter. It might take a couple of treatments to clean it all out. ... 1998 Pontiac Grand Am

I recently bought a 95 3 liter V6 pathfinder. The engine runs fine (for 154K miles) for about 20 minutes or so then starts to lose power and seriously misfire.

Don't want to throw out stupid money so would like to have a clue where to start. Thanks.

Diagostic I had a diagostic test and no codes, but my idle is very low 700s when it's just sitting in park and it is low in each gear. I took it in and the car place said it is an intermitten problem, but never really investigated. The car place where I bought the car said that it's a small engine and a very under powered car which COULD be the problem, and that you can only change the idle speed now days by computer and that is very pricy. Any suggestions? Anyone with the same probs? if so what

2.7 Engine I bought my college daughter a 2004 Dodge 4 with the 2.7 engine. It now has 40,000 miles on it. I didn't really do the research on this engine before I bought it and now all I hear what a bad engine it is from car experts. I'm curious if there are any people who use this site that have put a least 100,000 miles on this engine without the sludge problem ruining the engine. Also, I'd like to know what maintenance schedule was used for those who got longevity with this engine. I currentl

It fired right up, was driving it home it died, oil light, battery light, and check engine light came on. Checked oil and it is full.

Hi. I have a 2005 VW Passat B5.5, 2.0 TDI DPF, 1968 cmc 100 kw, engine code BGW. I just bought the car, and i really need to know what engine oil to use. I bought 5 liters of Castrol EDGE 5w30 that meets 507.00 specifications, but i want to be definitely sure that this is the right oil. Thanks in advance.


The oil you got is fine,as the car uses more oil as it gets older the lower number should get higher (i.e. 5/30-10/40-20/50)that way you control the amount of oilburn.roughly a pint every 1000miles is about right. ... Volkswagen Passat

I just bought a 2001 Sebring Sedan with the 2.7 engine. I am a home mechanic- only worked on my own cars but have never worked on a 2.7. I bought it from a small towing company which had picked it up as a "donation vehicle" and sold it instead of scrapping it.

The engine was no good because it made a lot of clattering noise when it was started. They
