yeah i've heard of the ATF trick being used.. especially if you have noisy/dirty lifters.. basically.. the ATF foams up in the oil and really does a good job of being a surfactant (that's a grease remover to you laymen). I use the engine flush stuff however religiously.. here's how I use it though..
Run around in your rig on errands.. getting the oil and filter and stuff.. when you get home.. leave the engine running and pour in your engine flush stuff (whether it be Gunk, ATF, or some other brand) and let the engine idle for 10-15 minutes. I then drain oil as usual. Really gets the crud out.. and the Hot Oil seems to melt the sludge pretty good and get it circulating through the filter and dissolved into the flush solvent.. then fresh filter and oil and you're good for a few more thousand miles.. avoid that Z-Max crap that says it does the same job as the solvent/ATF trick.. it's a waste of money.
