I discovered this when my avalanche started knocking. I was mad and it was late so I drained the oil and put diesel in instead of oil, ran it like 5 mins and drained out some really nasty diesel, filled with oil and it purs like a kitten. Crankcase is all clean, lifter hammering is gone, ls piston slap is gone, and it has 20lbs more op. decided to do it to the mutt today because it's loosing op and it's a junkyard engine that needs new life. Worked great again.

Yes it does, and very well. Do not do it unless you completely understand what your doing. I run them with 3qts of diesel, you can ad trans fluid to the mix as well for a better clean, but the engine idles for a couple mins watching op gauge, then I slowly bring it to 2000 rpm and hold it for around 3 mins , then slowly bring it down and shut it down. You want no load with diesel in it, it cleans but really is only providing lubrication in the form of being a fluid barrier, so you dont want quick burps of the throttle as you could easily knick a bearing. Diesel has come out black as coal when done. The av I just added oil, drove it 500 miles and changed oil again.

It's not so much the diesel itself doing the cleaning, as it doesn't have much solvent. The key is that it's very thin, so it runs through places much faster and more easily than oil, which rinses out any crud that's not too baked on.

However, as he says, there's some risk to the bearings, so I'd caution this: don't do it unless you think you have a sludge type problem, or a dirty/noisy lifter or 2.

You sure got it made ,with places to go and fart around
My daughter used to live in Vegas,played around out there on 4 wheelers but no jeep.

today the zj gets a new driver's side axle, new fluids, a tune up, cleaning, and possibly a little road time. also going to the junkyard to grab a few things for it and see if i can find any goodies for it. all this after an 18 hour work shift. should be a fun day

My poor ZJ is just sitting around... It's been completely ignored since February because of my S4 and now it's spring so I'm out on the bike all the time. Add to that that I bought another bike to build as a project and now IDK wtf to do with the Jeep lol.

Kinda scary ,but the outcome Sounds good.
Just to be clear you are talking about Diesel Fuel ?
Could U use kerosene ?
