Hi all, back again with another **** box
VX sedan V6 Spack (dont know if that has anything to do with anything)
But it milk shaked so i did the head gaskets and running the car trying to boil the water out of the oil, but there is only a small amount of oil getting to the rear 2 rockers on the RH bank (no idea of the left) but the other 4 are dry and its starting to make a a fair bit of tapping
How do i go about getting the pump to pump oil to the rockers
I know changing the oil wont solve the problem so dont suggest it

Peace

I think there lies your issue. ;);). Why have you not dumped the oil and refilled it with new? Even if you buy a $15, 5L of Gulf Western and refill it with that. Then drive it 300km and drain and refill with some better gear. Who in the hell told you, you can boil the glycol and water out of the oil?? It's not something I would even try. If it were even possible the engine would be wrecked before it was all out.

Loads of people do it
But thats not the problem, the lifters presumably are blocked not letting oil get through them to the pushrods
Changing the oil wont unblock the lifters (if thats eve the problem)

Well if that is not the stupidest thing I have ever heard of, I don't know what is. I assume you must still believe Santa is real?

Glycol eats the white metal clean off the bearings in an engine when run with contaminated oil you're probably quickly losing oil pressure
