holy crap i am a toyota tech and i havent seen one that bad. maybe use kerosine or something to clean the engine out and hope for the best
dont waste any $ on any flush
Its cocktail time
goes like this:
2 quarts kerosene or diesel (kerosene preferred)
1 quart atf
2 quarts motor oil, light stuff, like 10w30
2 oil filters
drain oil, and install a new (cheap) filter, fill'er up with the cocktail
start and let idle for 20 minutes (do not drive)
replace oil filter
replace oil filter
most of the gunk SHOULD be gone.
Drain and refill with motor oil and a fresh filter.
variation to the cocktail include 1 additional quart of atf instead of kerosene or motor oil.
Perform at your own risk, its a hail Mary pass, not recommended for engines that DO NOT need major cleaning, might do more damage then it will solve.
+1I would salavage that man.
Drain the oil, fill it up alllllll the way to the oil cap with kerosene and let it sit for 3-4 days. Drain, pour a gallon or two of kerosene through it with the drain plug out.
I would then just run some el cheapo walmart oil with 1 quart atf added. Run that for like 20 min idle and then change it all again.
Then change the oil every 500 miles with long highway blowouts inbetween.
Shouldn't cost you more than 100$ and ill bet you it wont die.
Thanks everybody for the thoughts. I AM very mechanically inclined. I have built a couple of collector cars and a race car so I know my way around a small block chevy engine. but jap FWD is not a strength of mine...
I took the back valve cover bank off tonight and it was worse than the front one. This engine is shot, this car is getting crushed. Sorry to say it, but it is...
I've already started to part this car out. With the scrap metal prices being $9.50 for every 100 pounds, it makes the most sense to sell you guys everything you need for cheap and then crush the rest.
This car is NOT pristine, it's been wrecked 2 times.
I'm just not going to spend my time or money trying to save a car that I paid $1500 for when there are much better projects for me to spend time and money on.
if you need parts hit me up soon, this is going to the shredder in 1.5 weeks.
