    Default Sump Clean out?

    Heya Everyone,

    I did this on my old 1997 1.7 astra when i first got it. i removed the sump and scraped and gunked untill everything was gone in there. also cleaned out the bottom end of the engine with gunk. then filled it cheap oil and ran it for 500 miles then changed it over to some decent stuff, just to wash the engine through more than anything.


    after this it sounded alot less "clattery" and allmost quiet.........almost lol


    so i was just wondering would this be any help on a modern car well an 54 Plate 2.0 DTi.

    its just more likley it was the change of oil and scraping the rubbish out from around the crank? or is it just one of those things that you just imagine? lol

    Changing oil - and especially to a good one - will make the car smoother anyway, even without cleaning out the sump. Whether cleaning the sump has an additional effect, I can't say.
