Asked by Dec 11, 2010 at 04:00 PM about the 2002 Chrysler Sebring LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

good news . first (Engine flush) the engine get yourself a 350ml bottle of kleenflow engine flush, a litre bottle of Lucas engine oil stabilizer and a 4.4 litre bottle of castrol gtx high milage with anti sluge. Now first run the engine at its high when the thermostat starts openning. This is the point where you would normally see your oil light flikering. 2nd while engine is idling, pour entire kleen flow engine bottle in crankcase for 5 min at 1500 RPM slightly faster than idleing. 3rd drain oil fully till no more drips. 4th replace oil filter with a wix filter do not use fram filters they work good in seebrings.5ft Poor 3/4 of the castrol GTX oil in crank case. 6th start car and at idle pour lucas stabilizer oil slowly till the bottle is finished then add the remaining castrol in engine ...it may need a dab extra from a one litre bottle to have it a the right level. this should fix the problem (only if your engine wasn't knocking alwready ) good luck

Make sure you stop the engine first before you drain the oil (just thought i'd mentioned that cause you never know with some people ) LOL

This is a bad advice on more levels than one. Engine flush, at least if done the way described here, will dilute the oil in the car even after the change. All additives such as Lucas are snake oil by definition. Castrol GTX is nothing special - use good quality true PAO synthetic oil and you won't need any additives.
