Title: Carb/Engine
Post by: Mike 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 (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)  Anybody ever heard of this?

Makes allot of smoke.  It's supposed to clean out carbon

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 (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)) 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? (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)

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. (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)

I'll do you one better and comment in October! (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley17.gif)

I recently did the water-down-the-carb trick, too, and it works great.  Use a plastic water bottle with one of those pop-top, nipple-type ends (like on a bottle of liquid dish soap).  It's much easier to control the rate of flow into the carb that way.

Be VERY careful about pouring water down your carb!!! Water does not compress anywhere near as much as a gas, and so if you overdo it with the water, something has to compress - and that usually means a rod bearing and even a bent connecting rod.
 
Jet engines (like the ones on a B-52) use water injection because they are a simple rotating assembley, but engines with rods and pistons don't car for it too much! Has anybody ever seen a car that was in a flood last more than a week before it threw a rod right out the side of the block? I was forced to live in Mississippi for a few years, and there were tons of FLOOD cars on the used car lots that were sold to poor unsuspecting Air Force kids. They had to pony up even more $$$ for new engines shortly after buying these cars.
 
Use like to use a MIST (windex bottle), a little bit at a time, and I give it enough time between squirts for the idle to clear up.

yeah. . .
 
gradual but steady on a engine about 1000 rpm usually does the trick.  It will let you know when you put too much in by breaking up.  All you want to do is casy allot of steam.  The super heated steam fractures the carbon and whisks it away so it can clog the converter.  LOL (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)  (It will burn off. . .  )
