Carb/Engine
« on: May 09, 2008, 03:47:02 AM »

The other day Mobby and me were outside of my house takin a look at his car.  My neighbor happened to be outside at the time and suggested Mobby "take some tranny fluid and dump it down the carb" but he told us to make sure we did it behind a factory and only at night cause of the pollution it makes   Anybody ever heard of this?

Ya, we needs to get his carb settled first...he's got tons of other stuff he needs to do as well.  Just sounded a little weird and since Mobby never heard of it (he's my walkin book of car knowledge ) I wanted to make sure it was legitBigMike2008-05-09 10:33:48

Forget the ATF. It's an oil too and will also leave deposits.
Crank up the engine RPMs slightly and just use water to trickle it in while keeping the engine from stalling. Do this for 5 or 10 minutes and the engine should be fairly clean inside.

Never noticed how clean a cylinderhead-chamber is after there has been a leaky headgasket spiling coolant in that cylinder?

Would misting it with a water spay bottle give the same results?

My recollection was a 3 ounce dixie cup of water s-l-o-w-l-y poured in while keeping the throttle open enough to keep it from stalling.

Might plug up a catalytic convertor on a later car though......

I used to go to the Exxon labs in Linden on business.
 
Back then, they were testing the 2.2 and 2.5 Mopars.  The fuel injection was literally washing the valves off as the fuel entered the cylinders.  So the Intahes were real clean after 25,000 miles of fuel testing.  When I tore down my Magnum, the vlaves were the same clean.  The exhaust valves had very little.  So the water on EFI Mopars doesn't seem to do anything.
 
But in the carburated days, it was a different story.
 
Yes Bob, they will clog up the converters.  But in time, the heat generated will burn off the carbon.  I learned that on my 80 while fixing an exhaust leak. . . It's a long story.  Soup cans just didn't hold up.
