"Why frequent oil changes are a very good idea. The oil in this engine had not been changed in several years, which resulted in serious wear and ultimately a scrap engine." [Freak]

Lightweight sludge [Wink] . You should have seen engines in the days of non-detergent oils! I had an old Dodge truck with a flathead and pulled the side covers off to adjust the valves. The entire cavity was packed!

Ah, British humor. Well, for an old Renault V4, that engine is pretty nice. We need to send a few cases of Chemtool and Auto Rx across the pond methinks.

A dab of Auto RX should clear that right up..... [LOL!] [crushedcar] Of course, you'd then have to use a spaghetti colander as an "oil" filter.......

I agree about the example of an engine well cared for.... Lots of varnish. Don't know why they give it as an example of an engine that got good care. I guess it is all relative?
