Hi there and welcome to JA.COM, i will try to assist you with your problem, there are many products on the market to deal with this job, but the best by far is a product by FORTE, its an engine flush, just add to your oil and drive for a while or leave the engine running for about half an hour, then drain the engine oil, depending on how much sludge you have, you may need to repeat, this product is what we personally use in the garage, it works wonders...here is a link to the product..http://www.forteuk.co.uk/product-detail/36/Advanced-Formula-Motor-Flush...hope this helps, kindest regards ***** ***** you require any further help please ask, if not please press the green button to accept as this is how i get paid, once again regards martin.

Hi there, i have personally used this product many times and have had no adverse effects from using it...you can buy this product on ebay or direct from forte, but probably easier on ebay, hope this helps, kindest regards martin.
