    Cleaning / Flushing After Ceramic Fail

    05 rxp, charger is on way to Jerry,
    i have done some searching and not found what im looking for, The motor is 1/2 out now and will be completely out tonight to make easy to pull the oil pumps, but i am curious to what i can Flush the motor out with, I have seen one Youtube Video where a guy had pump hooked up and was running some kind of solvent though the block. or is it not necessary to do this and just clean out the pump,filters, and replace. and inspect the chain.
    the motor was only ran for less than 5-10 mins as soon as i noticed a drop in Rpms,
    Thanks

    It is very important to wash out the entire engine.
    The washers break into 2 pieces or possibly 1000's of pieces.
    So get that engine as cleaned out as you can.

    Make sure you inspect those oil pumps good because they suck up those washers and chew them into little tiny pieces.

    Just ask me how I know

    I plan on replacing both pumps, but everyone says wash the block out,,, what do you wash it or flush it out with?

    My mechanic used brake cleaner. It was in a spray bottle.
    And he used a couple cans. You could also use gas. Both will evaporate.

    What do you guys do for flushing out the oil cooler I was thinking of hooking a pump up to it and flushing it out with with some type of solvent like mineral spirits and just letting the pump run thru it with a fine screen over the pump to catch any small stuff ?
