  1. 20% bonus tag was a big help in me getting the deal I got on a 2016 Silverado LT double cab 4x4. 48k msrp, paid 34k for the truck and still was out the door with a new tag 10k under the msrp. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Thank you very much, but their may be more too it. The oil pan was just pulled due to leaking seal, and it was full of sludge, cleaned throughly and reinstalled. All about 2 months ago. I agree with the used vehicle thing, Iv owned the truck for 5 years and I know that this was going to eventually catch up with it. Wasn't until suddenly using oil that it has finally affected the truck. Thanks again for all your help Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Awesome, thank you. I will start tomorrow by cleaning and using a shop vac to suck out the crude. Then I'll start with the rest of your steps. I appreciate the help! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Okay. Thanks guys. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Ready to get this thing cleaned up and take it for a spin! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Okay. Is there a brand/type of engine sludge cleaner? Iv never done any of this but am excited to give it a shot. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. What is castech heads?? I never have noticed a coolant lose but I did see some fluid that looked like it sitting in the valve spring closest to the firewall.
  7. Okay guys, Iv been lurking on here to find what I'm looking for but wasn't able to come up with what i needed. 2005 Silverado 5.3 L33 motor, 184k on engine and trans. I have had the truck since 138k and have taken very good care of it, always changed fluids on time etc. I have been battling oil consumption and blue smoke on start up. I took intake tube off and found large amount of oil in the intake manifold. I now have removed the driver side valve cover and what I found looks to be like very very poor maintenance from previous owners. Now my question is how in the world do I clean the valve springs/engine sludge out so when I replace my valve cover the old oil reside doesn't clog my new PCV bags build into the cover??? Any help would be much appreciated! Pics attached. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
