Local Chevy dealer asked if would come in and do a seminar for all the techs the issue is so bad, and the Lexus dealer is removing the heads and physically cleanning them and they ask us to demonstrate as well.

wow you know it's bad then and the higher ups should be talking with engineers about a fix for the new cars on the lot.

Also, get this...read an interview endmunds did with GM's chief engineer of the 3.6L engines and he states when asked" We have no issues with carbon buildup on these engines"......unreal spin the talking heads spout.

That one was 50K miles.....but even at 8-15k the valves are already looking pretty bad. Wears the giudes as well causing more ingestion.

Damn, now im really PO'd

Wish Id clued in to the catch can fix 2 years ago when I bought the Camaro. Just ordered mine today

Thing is, ive been remis in my routine checking of my oil level. I run 1200km per week on the highway (steady speed) with mine and just drive to the dealership every 3 weeks for an oil change, so ive never really looked at how much oil i may be using. Mistake on my part I guess. Im just fanatical on changing the often, I need to get fanatical on checking the level.

no way to know how bad mine is at 30,000 km, i may get a sense once a catch can is installed, see wht im getting.

I also dont know how effective the de-coke process is that the dealer did.

Is there anything we can use to clean up the oil mess on our engine ?
I already bought the Rx Oil Catch Can but would like to have my engine cleaned as much as possible.

Thanks

AN upper induction cleaning will loosen some of the deposits, but dont do it to often as every time you do some of the hard particles get pushed between the piston and cylinder wall causeing scouring. Some minor scouring is tolerable, but over time you will do more damage than it helps.

Here is a good link to pictures of ALL DI engines no matter what manufacturer to show how widespread this issue is...its not just GM:
