The oil pump on the left came out of my 1988 8v which I always changed the oil on at 3,000 miles. The pump on the right is from a 1998 2.0 8v which belonged to an old couple and didn't get hardly any service. It had a fram oil filter when I got it. I'm not saying that fram oil filters are bad but I am pretty sure that they neglected to change their oil on time. The whole inside of the engine is like this, sludge. It's only got 107,000 miles too!

Re: Change your oil! (8vMeX)

i deal with this all the time at work, ppl bring in their brand new cars with near 10k kms and they havent changed the oil, some ppl dont understand you need to do certain things like fuel filters, air filters, tranny flush, coolant flush. ill admit its easy to do all this when your the one doing it for next to nothing and it can get costly when shop rates (that are almost at 90 CAD right now) prevent ppl from doing proper maintenance.

Sounds romantic! haha
Yeah the pump still works fine thankfully. It spins smooth so I will be reusing it. I am going to flush the engine with some ATF. You put in like 3 quarts regular oil, and a quart of ATF. Drive it for 50-100 miles and change the oil. It really flushes it out. ATF is like the best for cleaning internal parts.

how is this? i work in a garage and never heard of this lol. ive been told to put some ATF in to quiet down my noisy lifters but never to run that much. something about ATF and oil doesnt seem like it would mix.

ATF has a lot of detergent in it. I do this to my fuel trucks at work. they just idle all day, so they get pretty gross. Every oil change its 7 qts oil and 1 qt atf. Makes a huge difference.

It's OK to say it, 'cuz Fram filters are indeed crappy.
