ENGINE TIME MACHINE: Cleaning Years Of Carbon Out Of My CHEAP Camaro RS

  Դիտումներ 226,572

My $4,000 2011 Chevy Camaro RS has a big problem. The 3.6L LLT V6 is close to timing chain failure. The dealership told the previous owner the 300HP direct injected engine had to be replaced to fix it. In the last video we removed the sludge with the Dynamic Engine Cleaner. Now I'm going to try and clean it with BG Products Platinum Intake Valve and Combustion Chamber Cleaner. This is a typical problem with DI engines and they recommend cleaning them every 15,000 miles.

Is the CRC valve cleaner do it yourself the same as taking it to the dealer and having the valves clean?

You NEED a freakin borescope bro! Wasted 15 odd minutes of my life to find out if it actually cleaned the valves...... did you ever scope it? Link me or show me please for the love of god.

Youre selling us on crap we dont need...dont do this to your Camaro....Its just a car that was not taken care of...Cheap gas, cheap oil, or no oil changes with high mileage, and a bad owner this is what you end up with.

Yeah yeah. That PORCHE is amazingly beautifull. Now, back to the lovely Camaro. Funny how the Renault is freaking you out. I see them all the time, here in Europe. In my country the tax on cars, is a cool 180% ,wich make tha Camaro a very expensive car. That’s the downside. The upside is, that i could go to the hospital, and get the cancer in the root of my tongue, treated for FREE. Last year I had a brain infarkt, luckily my wife, who is a trained nurse..No screew that. Bottom Line is, that iI got treated for free again. I would NEVER have been able , to pay for that, EVER. So I am never biching, about the the taxpressure again. EVER. Well.. Maybe a little bit. 🇩🇰🙋🏻‍♂️❤️👩🏻‍🚀🇺🇸😊😊

WARNING: If you have a HEMI and noticed it slugish or just bought it used spray a whole seafoam bottle in the throttle body. These cars suffer bad from dirty intakes due to the hemis consumption of oil, if you dont have a catch can youre looking for problems.

The Alpine came with the PRV engine that was shared by Peugeot Renault and Volvo. You should see the Murena. The French built some impressive machinery

Is it not more convenient to place your camera on a tripod and put it on a certain point and move it every now and then etc. will also improve the autofocus because sometimes it is really like I have to change glasses again, ha ha ha

Fun fact, the Alpine A610 you saw has the same engine as the Dolorean DMC12, the V6 PRV (Peugeot Renault Volvo). Not the same power though (about 130 hp for the DMC, while the Alpine has about 250-280 hp).

So basically we have no idea if the bg cleaner removes any carbon on the intake valves. No before or after borescope pics? I swear by walnut blasting and Takes only seconds per valve to be in new condition again. I’m very familiar with the lgx in the 2nd gen Acadia. Had to do mine at 20k due to crappy cold idle random miss. After blasting it idled like when we drove it off the lot.

If you go all in on exhaust save yourself the headache and DON'T run long tube headers. They create a TON of rasp. Shorties and MRT or Pypes M-80 mufflers are a decent sounding system for that engine. I have some videos of the Pypes system on a 2010 I use to have.

By the time you have to do a "special cleaning service" every 15K for DI engines, you've more than shot any fuel savings plus running that stuff through the engine most likely dumped more pollution back into the air. So, it seems there's no real advantage over port injection other than adding more EPA BS and lining dealers pockets.

"Cleaning Years Of Carbon Out Of My CHEAP Camaro RS". Without a before and after view of those intake valves, this is little more than an advertisement. You're not going to clean years of carbon off the valves with just minutes of treatment with a "magic" off the shelf chemical with questionable distribution into the intake. My expectations may be a bit on the high side relative to the others who are satisfied with a verbal presentation, but for this process to be meaningful, a visual is indispensable. I also believe your judgment about the GM 3.6L is tainted by the BMW environment you're in. BMW had problems with intake valve coking to a problematic extent I understand, but the GM cars not so much, to not at all with the greatest likelihood by 150k miles being the need to have the timing chains replaced. The valves do get build up on them, but to the extent of driveability issues is not that common and valve cleaning is more of an add on service for the 3.6L. You're more likely to have fuel injector trouble than valve coking trouble with the GM 3.6L. GM should recommend full synthetic oil for all of the GDI motors since it's oil from the PCV system entering the intake to account for that valve coking. It's not my intent to be a party pooper here, but I've cleaned the valves and replaced the timing components in a GDI 3.6L with well over 150k miles on the originals and no associated engine codes as a preventive. For the same reason walnut shell blasting is recommended for cleaning GDI valves (In BMWs I believe), this drip cleaning application should probably not be used on any GDI motor, because dissolved carbon deposits from the valves can enter the cylinder and get between the piston and cylinder wall leading to scouring. This is just a heads up for those watching who may not know any better. It's also apparent that taking these motor up to the high end of the RPM range a few times helps to loosen and clear out some of the "stuffiness".

Nice video, but I wanted to add that there is a cheaper way for DIYers to do this type of treatment at home without paying a shop. First you run the engine at high RPMs and add carb cleaner through the intake slowly to burn off the carbon on the valves. Add it slowly and use up an entire can. Do this every so often to keep the valves clean. Secondly add a catch can to your GDI engine. I have a DIY video showing you how to make your own catch can for under $10. You could always buy one premade if you want to be fancy and spend more money. But all this can be done at home without taking it to a shop so you can save money and do it yourself plus keep your direct injected engine running properly beyond 100K miles.
