Yes, and hope the OP keeps changing the oil filter rather frequently when using kreen.

I'd be looking at the oil filter every 500 miles for peace of mind, but definitely no later than 1,000.

Absolutely, that stuff needs to go somewhere.
I would be concerned about the pickup screen, hopefully the sludge dissolves and passes through into the filter.

Personally, I'd pull the oil pan after the first full treatment if easily done enough.

I would not pull oil pan or try clean anything inside, I would just doing normal oil change regularly. and compare to what ever you did now to the engine compare to preview owner did, you do this engine a favor. Good luck and keep update, love the pix update smile

I check my filter twice a week, its a drop in canister so thats easy enough. Pulling the oil pan is not easy on this car, so for now I'm sticking with checking the filter often, and 500mi OCI.
I am aware that this may be too much for a product to handle, but its worth a shot. And if it works, I'll have great documentation for others..

If your checking the filter i would do 1K oil change, might as well get the full use out of the product.
It may take 5-6K to get this cleaned up.

if it work or it does help clean. its not just skeen doing all the work, its because you changing oil sooner. I think skeen help some but I also think oil alone is the biggest thing to help this engine clean. Still think skeen is just another over hyper product. and year from now prepare for another hyper product replace skeen like they replace auto rx. Engine oil alone is the best to help engine clean. Good luck.

I agree here. Go up to 1,000 miles and keep checking the oil filter.

I'm sure he hasn't hit his 1000 mile mark yet. I'd say this is going to take a while.
