My $4,000 2011 Chevy Camaro RS has a big problem. The 3.6L LLT V6 is close to timing chain failure and full of sludge. The dealership told the previous owner the 300HP direct injected engine had to be replaced to fix it. I'm going to try and save it with BG Products Dynamic Engine Cleaner.

Would you still get sludge if you regularly changed oil with an oil extractor through dipstick. I've change mine yearly every 3k there's nothing on filter, or on the cap and car runs just fine.

Any solvent that is capable of diluting any oil build up deposits or ( sludge ) is not going to protect metal to metal surfaces . . best thing is change your oil often .

I do appreciate all these videos. I had mentioned in another video that i just picked up a 2010 RS with 74k miles on it. And with all you're maintenance videos it'll give me an idea of what I may need to do down the road. Or what I can do to prevent it. I'm a crew chief at an auto center. So I have the mechanical skill. But its good to see stuff first hand before it catches me by surprise. Keep it up dude! Thanks again!

I have the same piece or Crap Engine in a Cadillac STS. The chains were allegedly changed under Warranty, in Nov 2016. I think they billed GM for it but did squat. GM really used weak Chains in these engines.

These engines have reputation regarding the chains. My ex had a 3.6 in a GMC that lived long and needed a valve job after 100k miles, but the car was driven hard every day. Lots of stop/go and full throttle hammer down runs. The 3.6 is the class of the field compare to the V6 from Ford or RAM

On the 3.6 one side is always cleaner than the other because of the pcv circulation. The fresh air side is always cleaner than the pcv side or passenger side. These engines require 3000 mile oil changes not 5000 if you want to keep them alive, and you need quality oil.

No load revving the engine, especially for a long time, in my opinion will cause damage to the engine parts. BG will not buy you a replacement engine if you blow it! Why not drive the car while the engine cleaner product does its work. It safer than revving your engine at a high revs with no load on the engine.

To bad you didn't run a compression test first then you would've seen the real magic. It will clean the carbon from around the rings and raise the compression. I've used it and seen it raise the compression 20psi. My buddy's wife drove his truck and asked what he had done to it because it ran so much better. You can't beat the BG products. Their fuel additive for gas and diesel are great too.

I heard a rumor from someone who had a 2011yr Chevy, this person said, Chevrolet, I don't know either the v6,v8, one or the other, will run up to 80,000, the theory of what is said, about when someone says, the engine is blown, well, that's what this person had said about their 2011 chevrolet Camaro, it was probably between the heads n pistons, but I will put this note of thought in the automotive industry, all the way from the factories that make the molded parts to the factories that actually put the parts in the production line, everything is all about QUALITY AND CONTROL, THAT'S IT 100% of the time, the bad thing is about q, n c, is the factories are always thinking they have to push production as hard as possible, THAT IS THE BIG NEGATIVE TO AUTOMOTIVE FACTORY PRODUCTION, SORRY, wayneeden95@gmail.com

My procedure if I bought this car. 1st. since they said CATS. were clogged " GET RID OF THEM " before running the engine at 3,000 RIP UM'S for over an hour. Use straight pipe to replace CATS. FOR THIS CLEANING. 2nd. Clean as much CRAP OUT AS U CAN MANUALLY, I sometimes I use a shop vac. & reduce the hose down to about 1/2. 3rd. Drain oil, Drop oil pan, clean it out & oil pump screen. 4th. I use 50/50 Kero. & engine oil, new oil filter, over fill the engine by a few quarts then let her set for a week. 5th. Drain off 50/50 mix till it's full mark on dip stick. Start engine & run it for 5 to 10 mins. at 1,500 RPM'S or until Thermo. opens. If any knocking, shut engine off & drain. 6th. Refill with 1 QUART kERO. engine oil, till full mark on dipstick, & new filter. Run engine for 1/2 hour at 1,500 RPM'S. 7th Drain oil, Drop oil pan replace oil pump, rep[ace timing chain, then refill with SYNTHETIC OIL & new filter. 8th Replace PVC valve & make sure line is clear, I would also run a OIL Catch Can & vent the side of engine that was dirty. There's different ways of doing this all over the WEB. Also FLUSH COOLANT SYSTEM, CHANGE THERMO. & DROP TRANS. PAN, REPLACE FILTER THEN REFILL. MIGHT WANT TO DO THIS TWICE ? Actually that engine did not look that bad at all, I've seen engines that when you removed the rocker arm cover it was PACKED FULL OF BURNT ON OIL & CRAP.

Usually I wouldn't recommend this kinda stuff on any nice engine since it loosens all the soft stuff but also some of the hard stuff. And having that hard carbon buildup go through an oil passageway and end up on a main bearing or even a rod bearing would do more harm than good. Also I don't usually post crap like this, but why would you want a Camaro V6? Isn't it a muscle car...?!

Use a pickup magnet while draining oil see if it bends the oil stream. If there is metal in oil it will bend the stream oil as it drips out. Valencia BMW had something they sold product that filled engine with liquid cleaner then circulated it inside engine until clean. It cleaned carbon sludge.

What does pouring that into the fuel tank do? There is no part of the engine that can benefit as fuel does not touch the backsides of the valves or any other part of the engine internals to benefit. Also, never do a engine running solvent based cleaning on ANY GDI engine as while most of the hard crystalline coking deposits will be expelled out the exhaust, some is always pushed between the pistons and cylinder walls causing scouring we see when we tear these down to rebuild. And for the 2008-2012 (any with the black plastic valve covers), needs the PCV barb drill mod performed. Remove the barb located on the rear of the passenger side valve cover. Grasp base and twist while pulling straight up and drill bottom 2 holes to 5/64" and the top single hole to 1/8". Re seat back and that will now allow the proper CFM of evacuation flow to correct that flaw. Now, the timing chain wear and stretch is caused by the issues that plague all GDI engines, the excessive amount of raw fuel washdown and dilution as well as dealers using syn blend oil that cannot deal with the fuel dilution and high amounts of abrasive particulate matter. I guarantee you still need the timing set replaced, and only a manual intake valve cleaning can clean all the deposits and also the only safe procedure. NO shop in the US does more of these engines than we do, and have for the past 10-12 years. Anything you want to know, just ask.

Red dirt to me means Arizona, Texas, or New Mexico we have bazillion acres of nothing but red dirt. My dad GMs a ford dealership that handles a lot of oil field fleet contractors. He says some of these trucks come in with out the oil filter covers off and spit red dirty oil, this stuff brings those superduty and ecoboost engines back to life consistently.
