Re: Oil Sludge in Filler Neck

Sorry for the late reply. If theirs no sludge/pudding on your dip stick at the top or rust on the stick it's more than likely just on the top of the valve cover & fill cap.You could pull that & feel better by cleaning it off.If anybody wants to add Trans fluid I wouldn't add more than 6oz,run the ca...

Re: Oil Sludge in Filler Neck

It's just condensation.Actually its pretty common.Usually caused by short trips & the oil doesn't get hot enough to burn it off.Trans fluid is a good detergent,put some in the oil take the car for a real long drive.
