How can I get rid of sludge in a car engine?

I honestly can’t remember the last time I changed my car’s oil. Terrible—I know. But I was told that there could now be sludge in my engine. Sure enough, when I popped the hood I noticed this gross brown goo. How can I get rid of car engine sludge?

Sometimes car maintenance is hard to fit into our day-to-day schedules and can lead to issues like this. Engine sludge is not at all uncommon.
To get rid of sludge in a car engine, you can use engine sludge remover. Just add the chemical to your car’s oil.
Once you do, allow your car to idle for about 5 to 10 minutes. Change the oil shortly after, following the instructions on the chemical sludge remover.
If you’re not so interested in getting rid of the engine sludge yourself, bring your car to the mechanic. They are trained to remove sludge from engines and can often do it much more effectively.
