cleaned out my throttle body last weekend and while I was at it did the valve cover. Looked like it was covered in liquid liquorish. Scaped that clean ok but what to do about the rest



Anything that will completely dissolve it wo I don;t have chunks blocking up passageways?

it may sound a little whacked, but it works quite well. put about half a litre of atf in and run the engine for 20min before you do an oil change. its high in detergents and cleans out most of that crap. also, if youre in buying sythetic oil, it will help prevent this. i was once told by a guy that was an aircraft mechanic, that adding atf was part of their aircraft oil change routine. i however would not recomend doing ths if the engine already burns oil, as cleaning out the sludge will likely cause it to burn more.
