The 1st sign of the extended OCI was the completely blocked oil fill port.
Please notice the hole I had to poke through the sludge in order to refill the engine.
Engine was quiet with no audible indications of damage.

Why do people do this level of neglect? That's just nuts.

What's the procedure for reversing this mess? Assuming the engine isn't actually damaged. Just conventional oil changes every 1K with some seafoam, diesel, or MMO?

I don't believe this would be reversible

At this point, the best way to even get close to "reversing" this (and that's not even talking about the mechanical damage done, just the sludge buildup), would be to removed the valve covers and oil pan and clean them out.

Wow, you are two for two with the posting of OF anecdotes off extremely neglected vehicles. Not sure your line work, linked thread* seemed to imply customer cars? In any case, folks driving/owning these vehicles simply don't care. I wonder what their places of residence look like. SMH.

I think mostly things like this "just happen " because the car is in the hands someone for whom car maintenance just isn't on their radar. I've known plenty of people who've never cracked open an owner's and don't care to. Too busy, too distracted, uninformed as a car owner, etc., etc.. If I has to guess, I would say there was a first owner that had the car serviced at least minimally and then a second owner who just recently discovered that the car needed to be serviced at all! Anyone else care to guess?

I own/operate a Quick Lube. 35 years and this one was one of the worst I've seen.
Pics are tough without embarrassing the driver.
I took these for documentation and limit liability.
And to share with BITOG, of course.

So you filled this thing, threw on a filter and sent them on their way? I'd love to see a progress pic in a few weeks/months.

Maybe the driver/owner wasn't the only or full time owner. However if they are/were perhaps some embarrassment not a bad thing, but I understand it's a customer. I doubt would register much anyway.

What was the previous fill of oil? Do you know, or was this a new customer?
