Flushing the head

Hello Guys,
Is there a way to flush the head of an 86 N/A with out removing it and doing an overhaul? I'd like to pursue the least anount of hassle and would like to just give it an (enema) so to speak, does anything exist to remove the sludge from 175,000 miles of driving?
Thanks in advance,
Frank B

You could always try boiling it like an oil cooler I heard of...........

If possible dip the whole car.

No one thing will work. The best you can do is run ATF instead of oil for 20 min to clean the lubricated parts. Use radiator flush, and run two cans of injector cleaner in about 1/2 a tank of gas. Pulling the valve cover does not give you much access to clean anything.

Take the head off and shower with it. If its ok with Pam.

Thanks Roger, that won't sit to well with Pam hehe...
I'll just leave it alone and have it overhauled at the 200K mark, that'd probably be the best thing to do. I don't have any noticeable engine problems (knock on wood) I was just concerned about sludge causing a problem that's all.
Won't running all of that injector cleaner fry the plugs?.. hmmm.. does it actually disolve the crusty stuff on the tips and on the piston head? any other advice would be usefull also.
thanks
Frank B

Yes its alot of injector cleaner. I am doubtfull that injector cleaner does much to clean valves or pistons. Your car will most likely run rich but the plugs should be fine.

Use a good synthetic oil, it costs more initially but you have more mileage between changes and it doesn't leave deposit's like dino does.

Yeah, he was running 75% ATF

1 qt out of 6 will not hurt - drain out the old oil, add oil & ATF, run at idle for 20 minutes, drain, change oil and filter.

Cooling system - flushing is about the only thing.

"Inside the engine" Techron. In a pinch, you can use Toluene in the gas tank .5 - 1 gal of Toluene and then fill the tank.

Change fuel filter, You can also change the fuel strainer.

Very true, I ran synthetic (Mobil 1) in my Korean econo car and after 100K miles it looked like new under the valve cover.

Hunter. What's your problem? I hope for your sake that I never see you. If you'd like to continue acting this way towards me, why don't we meet somewhere?
Or you can just apologize. Or go away.

Hunter, Frank: a suggestion: go to opposite ends of the room, AND COME OUT FIGHTING!

Seriously: for whatever reason, it isn't working. So please, give each other a little room.

Hunter: your post is uncalled for. If you have a beef with Frank, take it up with him offline: email, PM's AIM, phone calls...etc. are a far better way to deal with this, than to come up with random comments like above.

Frank: no need to be threatening and such. Take a breath, and step away from the keyboard....

EVERYONE: just play nice.

Thank you,
-Z-man, moderator.

Frank,

I just removed my fuel filter Friday. You talk about sludge! I've pulled a lot of fuel filters from cars before, never seen one this bad. I also noticed the fuel line that connects to it was dry-rotted badly. Very glad I did that little bit of maintenance. If you haven't done yours yet you might want to consider it. Just my $.02.
