Today i removed the oil pan from my wd to replace the oil pan gasket. I noticed that was sludge build up on the cranks and the block. I wondering if it would be a good idea to remove the sludge from the engine or not to? thanks Joe

like old and soundguy said, definately clean it up as best you can with the pan off. what you have to be careful with is the sludge that dissolves, breaks loose, and starts moving around in the motor. it can clog the pickup screen and filter. keep an eye on the oil pressure. if it starts dropping, drop the pan and clean the screen, change the filter. i add a quart of dextron trans fluid along with the oil. it is a high detergent and does a good job cleaning. i wouldnt work the motor hard for the first two oil changes to get most of the goop out. marvel mystery oil works good too

As Old sugested.. I'd clean as much manually as i could. Then id refill with as cheap detergent oil i could find, and buy a 2-pack of oil filters. I'd also add a little MMO to my oil.. run her for a good clip and let her get woarm while working, then drain that oil after a few days, and change the filter and then put in your regular oil.. etc.

I would remove as much of it as you can, scrap it off and or use carb cleaner to clean it off. The be sure to run a good brand of detergent oil in it and change it a few times in the near future

Let me hypothetically ask you this question: who WOULD want sludge in their engine????
