sorry to hear that bro.
but thank you very much for to share your experience. i heard from another forum that a driver pour in the engine oil treatment into his evo engine then end up all the valve kena block and cause the engine oil to enter the combustion chamber. i forgot wat oil treatment he used already.

but then i also heard people saying TUFOIL is good to use and it really works at it claimed.

from my survey at net these oil treatment main ingredient is teflon which is solid and it can cover/stick itself to your engine wall.

owh it's teflon that stick with metal.. maybe that X1R not compatible with my current engine oil that cause the mixture not stable or sumthing.. just my 2cents... i need to refer it to my workshop fast before it getting worse..

maybe later if i change oil then i'll give a try TUFOIL engine treatment.. :)

Tufoil is still available at TESCO and JUSCO stores. We apologise for the times that this product is out out stock for a month or more.It moves fast. Hopefully, the replenishment of the stocks can be as fast too.

some "snake oil" addditives have been known to sludge up an engine fast. (i forgot the word to actually describes it but you can find complains like this over many car forums)

this is a more apperent when engine oil in cars (those who add additives & never change oils often enough) over a period of time.

this is how it may look like (worse case)

yes.............
sludge is like a penyakit to engine but got ubat one larr.
the ubat is to dismantle all your engine internal parts.
then use tooth brush and kerosin/petrol to wash it. hopefully the engine is not toast up before u cure it becozs sludge can cause extreme wears and tears and heat at certain part of the engine. this is because it block the engine oil passage or it cover up the engine wall too thick that it is hard for the engine oil to transfer its heat to the engine wall.
sludge can cause the valve canot close tightly; meaning the valve is tersangkut there lor. if your piston head hit the valve then u hear your engine sound different lor and the sound should be louder than normal engine sound. sometimes the sludge can cover the valve spring which cause the valve become always open and the piston head can heat this valve too.
and most important is that fuel injection car has a lot of sensor built inside the engine block. if the sludge cover the sensor then reading become not accurate thus your mileage and power also become not steady.
but dont worry la brother u not living at those place that got winter where the engine oil can frozen and build up sludge.

but i dun know if the oil additive can build sludge or not larr. u have to check it.

About the photos and without prejudice we comment.

The engine is heavily sludged and the causes are known.

1 The engine oil change interval is overextended. We have come across a Toyota owner who changed his engine oil at 40,000 km and the filter was completely blocked by slag ( iron filings ).The sludge hardened on most of the engine parts and the mechanic had to use a scraper to remove it.

2. Prolonged idling with little airflow such as traffic jams and sleeping inside the cars with engine and air-cond on..This is a really bad habit.

3. Engine oil evaporation. Some engine oils are known for serious evaporation. Obviously, they cannot take the heat. When engine oil runs cool, there is no oil loss or evaporation.

4. Insufficient engine oil to run the engine. Oil is way below minimum mark of dipstick level for long periods of time.

Never allow any engine oil to run too hot. Unfortunately, the majority of cars do not come fitted with an oil temp gauge or an oil cooler. In test done in the USA, a mixture of Tufoil with normal engine oil was shown to run 42% cooler. The resultant oil temperature was 42% cooler during a 60 minutes test.High heat kills all engines without discrimination.

Even before oil additives were invented there was sludge.This thing sludge has nothing to do with oil additives, unless the quality of the oil additive is so terrible and horrible. Tufoil has over 30 years of R & D. It's a quality product.
