What Is Oil Sludge?
Oil sludge is the breakdown product of over-stressed oil in your engine.
Oil that is stressed by contaminants and oxidation from working thousands of kilometres longer than it was designed to….. Sludge begins to appear in the oil pan and valve covers.
What Does Oil Sludge Do To Your Engine?
Engine sludge causes stuck piston rings, reduced engine compression, power loss, high fuel consumption, oil pressure problems, and even overheating.
Why Is Oil Sludge Affecting More Cars?
In the struggle to pass tougher federal emissions specifications, car manufacturers have raised engine operating temperatures and increased exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). In 1990’s, tighter federal emissions standards were enacted. Fuel mixtures have to run leaner, and leaner mixtures cause higher combustion temperatures. When nitrogen in the air is raised to higher temperatures it is converted into new contaminant cocktails. By the late 1990’s, sludge is appearing as a major problem.
When Is Sludge Not Sludge?
When it’s an oil and water emulsion from a leaking or blown head gasket. If this happens, you get a whitish cream coloured sludge on the inside of the oil filler cap. It’s typically cooler than the rest of the cam case and so the oil/water mix tends to condense there. If it off and the underside of it looks like it’s covered in vanilla yoghurt or mayonnaise, you’ve got a blown head gasket. A way to confirm this is if your oil level is going up and your coolant level is going down. The coolant is getting through the breaks in the head gasket and mixing with the oil.
Periodic Engine Flushing Is Normal For Cars And Trucks After 100,000 Kilometres
Flushing Your Engine Now Could Save You Thousands Of Dollars
Engine rebuilds and replacements due to sludge damage are common place.
In Fact… Replacement Engine Costs Can be Financially Crippling:
- For typical cars can range in price from $4000 to $10,000
- Trucks engines can be from $6000 to $25,000
- Large mine site engines can be $100,000 to $300,000 plus
Regular Flushing Can Prevent Engine Seizures And Further Sludge Damage.
This Is No Ordinary Oil Sludge Remover. This Unique Super Concentrate Engine Flushing Additive Can Be Used On All Types Of Vehicles. Here’s Why…
|Liquid Intelligence 219 is a blend of 100% active purpose specific detergents, formulated to dissolve hard to remove engine oil sludge.|
|In addition to removing oil sludge, Liquid Intelligence 219 is a powerful cleanser that totally removes deposits, solid wear particles and residues from all internal engine components, including piston rings.|
|Liquid Intelligence 219 does NOT contain solvent like other engine flushes.|
Liquid Intelligence 219 Is Safe, Powerful And Effective To Use
Beware of other solvent based engine flushes or solvent mixed with oil should NOT be used as an oil flush as they can do considerable damage to oil seals, o-rings, and can even cause a crankcase explosion.
My Car Is Smoking… What Does It Mean?
Blue smoke is usually indicative of oil burning in your combustion chamber. There are usually two primary causes:
(1) Piston Rings If you do a compression test, and your compression is not within spec, this could be the culprit. Piston rings are metal rings that are in place around your piston. They keep your piston from contacting the cylinder walls, as well as serve as a seal to keep oil from entering the combustion chamber.
As the piston comes up the cylinder, the rings contract, and apply the oil to the walls of the cylinder, lubricating the walls. On the down stroke, the rings expand, act like a squeegee and squeeze most of the oil off of the cylinder walls so it does not burn.
If you have blue smoke while your engine is running, constantly, or even just under acceleration after it is warm, one or more of your piston rings is probably gummed up, and is allowing oil past it, into the combustion chamber where it can be burned.
The solution for this is unfortunately, expensive. Some cars can be done cheaper than others, but on average a ring job in the industry runs about the same as an engine rebuild. Figure on a minimum of $2,000 in labour, and up to $500 in parts.
Liquid Intelligence 219 Super Concentrate Engine Flushing Additive is a blend of 100% active purpose specific detergents, formulated to dissolve hard to remove engine oil gum and sludge. It will also removes gum deposits, solid wear particles and residues from all internal engine components, including piston rings.
(2) Valve Stem Seals Blue smoke is caused by oil burning… dried and hardened valve stem seals will allow oil to seep into the combustion chamber… and produce blue exhaust smoke.
The blue colour is not from burning oil, but from oil failing to burn… The oil forms tiny droplets that make the smoke look blue.
All valve stem seals and gaskets are subject to deterioration, over time.
Using Liquid Intelligence 230 Stop Leak Seal Expander rejuvenates dry and hardened valve stem seals… preventing oil from passing down valve guide… and ending up as blue smoke from the exhaust. Click here to see Liquid Intelligence 230 Stop Leak Seal Expander
Replacing valve stem seals can be a difficult operation… often requiring specialised tooling and the removal of a cylinder head. Just to remove and replace the head will cost about $800 plus gaskets and parts, so a mechanical repair bill of $1500 is a real possibility.
White smoke is typically indicative of coolant being burned in the combustion chamber. There are really only a few ways this can happen, and none of them are good. They are:
In any case, either a partial or full engine tear down and rebuild is in your immediate future. A cracked cylinder head or block can be caused by overheating, dumping cold water on a hot engine that is not running (and at operating temperature), or simply by metal fatigue over time/miles. The last one though, is quite rare. Most of the time when your block or head is cracked, its because the engine was overheated recently. When this will lead to coolant burning or white smoke, is if your head is cracked in between the cooling passages and the combustion chamber, which will allow coolant into the chamber to be burned.
A “warped” cylinder head causes a leak in the cooling passages (or water jacket’s) between the head and the block. This causes coolant to leak past the head gasket, into your combustion chamber. Hence the white smoke. A warped head can sometimes be corrected with a milling machine, checked and re-checked to make sure the gasket surface the head gasket sits on is perfectly level and flat…but this is often as expensive as a new cylinder head, and only works about half of the time.
A blown head gasket happens when the gasket between the cylinder head and engine block cracks or fails. This gasket is usually made of pressed metal, and can, over time and repeated heating cycles, fail. When this happens, the water pump pumps coolant through the engine like normal, but there is no longer a complete gasket in place to keep the coolant separate from the oil and combustion chamber. More often than not, this results in oil the colour and consistency of mud, and white smoke.
Lastly, a cracked engine block can cause white smoke by allowing coolant to flow into the combustion chamber through small cracks between the water jacket’s and the cylinder walls. Keep in mind, all cracks mentioned here will be less than the thickness of a human fingernail, they can be tough to spot.
Excess fuel in the system is usually the primary cause for black smoke.
If your engine is spitting black smoke, there is more than likely a problem with blocked and injectors bad spray patents. Liquid Intelligence 218 Injector and Valve Purge decarbonize cleans valves, injectors and combustion chambers to restore the engines performance and reduce smoke.
What Vehicles Can Liquid Intelligence 219 Be Used In?
Liquid Intelligence 219 is suitable for all petrol, diesel and LP gas engines. It is compatible with all commercially available mineral and synthetic motor oils. Safe and effective for turbocharged and supercharged engines engine seals, gaskets and bearings.
How Do You Use Liquid Intelligence 219?
With the Engine at operating temperature drain your old engine oil, when the oil stops running out of the sump, refit your sump bung.
Add the recommended volume of fresh oil to the engine. You can use cheap super market oil for this part of the job. Run the engine to warm up the oil, and then add the Liquid Intelligence 219 Super Concentrate Detergent Flushing Additive at a 10% solution.
Run your Engine at an idle for 30 minutes…..DO NOT DRIVE VEHICLE. Bringing the revs up to about 1500 to 2000 rpm for 5 to10 seconds every 5 minutes to achieve a dish washer affect.
For Larger truck engines like (Series 60 Detroit, Cat, Mack, Cummins), run at about 1200 rpm.
Drain the flushing oil (you will notice the flushing oil comes out thick and black) once drained refit the sump plug. Replace the oil filter with a new one, wiping a little clean engine oil around the new oil filter’s rubber seal to ensure ease of removal next oil change and refill with new oil to the full mark.
Start your Engine and make sure your oil light goes out and check the sump plug and oil filter for leaks. The oil filter is now full with oil, top the oil up, waiting a couple of minutes for the oil to drain down before you check the level.
Under no circumstances should you drive your vehicle with the flushing oil in the engine.

First appearing in Australian vehicles in the late 1980s, engine sludge is a phenomenon that can affect almost any make of later model petrol engine and can cause extensive engine damage.
The term engine sludge, also known as black sludge, describes the formation of heavy deposits in the crankcase of petrol engines. Its formation can usually be traced to inadequate servicing, such as missed or extended oil change intervals or to the use of poor quality or inappropriate oils.
Sludge can resemble heavy grease or tar and results from the thickening and oxidation of the engine oil. The resulting material blocks the engines lubricating system, causing the engine to seize.
The best method for removing heavy sludge build-up is to dismantle, clean and repair the engine components, however, lesser amounts may be treated without dismantling the engine.
Engine sludge deposits are most commonly found in petrol engines, although sludge can accumulate in diesel engines through a slightly different process.
Diesel oils are exposed to much higher levels of unburnt fuel and combustion soot and over time, these contaminants build up to a level that thickens the oil. This eventually causes oil starvation as with petrol engines.
The small diesel engines used in light commercial vehicles and 4WDs are most at risk of accruing black sludge. Their typically high power output, small oil capacity and increased heat load from turbochargers make them a prime candidate for such problems. Fuel system problems, such as blocked injectors, that over deliver or don’t atomise the fuel properly, can add considerably to the soot and fuel loads the oil has to deal with, speeding up the thickening process.
Sludge and excessive exhaust smoke can be avoided with regular servicing in accordance with the manufacturers specifications and by the use of Liquid Intelligence 219 Concentrated Detergent Based Engine Flush and Liquid Intelligence 218 Injector and Valve Purge. This combination of cleaners will flush the engine block clean of oil contaminates and sludge and decarbonize valve, injectors, combustion chambers and piston rings.
