- That in just the same way that cholesterol can clog a heart, so engine sludge can seriously affect engine performance? If allowed to accumulate this can lead to engine breakdown.
- Sludge can soon build up, even in well-maintained engines if poorer quality lubricants are used. Once its established it can be difficult to remove.
- Castrol GTX Professionals formulation is specifically designed to help prevent the build-up of sludge and protect critical engine parts such as cam covers and oil pick ups.
Understanding Engine Sludge
No engine, no matter how sophisticated or technologically advanced is immune to the damaging effects of engine sludge.
Typically engine sludge is a thick dark substance that builds up and can eventually obstruct oil passages, adversely affecting the performance of critical engine parts.
Although engine sludge cannot be detected by simply draining the oil, there are some basic signs that sludge could be accumulating. Common reported consumer symptoms include: banging or other metallic noise in the engine, a build-up of contamination under the filler cap, the engine not warming correctly then overheating or erratic oil pressure. All these can ultimately lead to engine breakdown.
Castrol GTX Professional's formulation works hard to prevent engine sludge forming and fights to reduce the effects of accumulated deposits. Castrol GTX Professional fights engine sludge and keeps your engine working at its full potential.
An enhanced feature of Castrol GTX Professional is its micro filtration technology. We use this filtration technology on the oils we supply to the worlds leading car manufacturers for filling their engines for the very first time.
