    I have used diesel fuel with good results as well. You might want to considet pulling the pan depending on how bad it is.

    You usually want to change the oil while its warm. Oil has suspension properties in it and the junk would be in the oil, not on the bottom of the oil pan and it would drain with the oil.

    You might want to consider putting new oil in. Running it for a day on the water and draining it while its still warm. It will help 'flush' it out and get that crap off the bottom of the oil pan.

    Thats how I would handle it.

That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    Can i get a amen The diesel fuel can be kinda risky you cant rev the motor, only let idel for like ten minutes. And honestly if it hasn't run for say a long time and it is nasty oil the diesel and old oil is like sand on main bearings. ATF is still oil and is has inhibitors that keep it from burning and contains good solvents to keep the valve body in the trans clean.

    Crank case "cleaners" of any kind are very risky IMHO. they do thier job of removing deposits very well and you run the risk of some of that sediment being left in the low reaches of the pan (hard to effectivly drain on a boat) only to be drawn up to the screen . When I get a vehicle with a concern of sludge or varnish etc I do several short interval oil changes with a good detergent oil . Those oils have properties which surround dirt and deposit particles and safley carry them off . my 02 Tom

    *recently worked with an Atty on a deal where a quick lube joint sold him a crankcase clean , vehicle only made it from Ventura to Bakes ,the residual junk that didn't drain, plugged the oil screen about 90% ,Smoked the lower end

    I'm with you Tom. The last thing you want to do is take those carbon deposits, sludge, or whatever out of suspension and have them floating around the engine. Seems to me that might be an expensive problem. Imagine if one of those carbon deposits made it up next to the piston skirt and cylinder wall. Carbon is hard stuff and is usually what makes up sludge.
