    Try searching the Digest Archives at www.dsm.org
    Everyone uses the Mopar Combustion Chamber Cleaner, MCCC.
    You can pick a can up at a Chrysler dealer.

    combustion chamber cleaner really wouldn't have any affect on ticking lifters if you ask me.

    Someone on the tampa board recomended adding ATF to your oil before an oil change, since it acts as a detergent. let the motor run for a short while with it in, then let the car cool down and drain it and refill with new oil. Doesn't do much for cleaning the combustion chamber, but seems like a generally good thing to do as far as keeping oil passages, oil pump assembly, and oil feed lines for the turbo and turbo bearing assembly clean internally.

    may just be snake oil, but worth a shot.

    No I never got to try it. I ended up just replacing my lifters while I had the head off.

    so there probably just worthless old lifters then that are ticking.... is that a relatively hard job.... does it take a while? i hope i would get the revised lifters.... or is that all they sell now?

    changing lifters takes about 5 minutes longer than doing a timing belt.

    If you buy lifters from Mitsu they only sell the revised ones....

    Little info for you guys that ever rebuild a head... If you buy new
    rocker arms they are cast aluminum now.

    If you are buying lifters you can either buy them from FT. Myers Mitsu or there is a guy that's selling them for the cheapest prices around.
    There is also a guy that sells em for $7.75 each on the 3SI org board. http://www.3si.org/vbb/showthread.ph...hlight=lifters

    lifters are very simple to replace w/o removing the timong belt or cams ther is a vfaq od dsm.org that will walk you through it or if you dont feel comfortable to do it i can do it for you no prob. and the best ccc to use it MOPAR COMBUSTION CHAMBER CLEANER about 5 a bottle at any dealer just use it out side and make sure you are standing up wind cause it puts out a lot of smoke and you will need some one else there to help

    I honestly don't see the need for combustion chamber cleaner unless you've been running cheap gas in your car for a while or your intake valve seals have been weeping oil into the cylinder.

    If you run 93 octane just about all formulations should already contain detergents that help to remove any excess carbon deposits.

    A well maintained and tuned gasoline engine shouldn't have excessive carbon build up, some exhaust valve/system carbon build up is completely normal.

    The lifter swap took me 45 mins with the help of my bro. Jason, the ATF thing is completely true. (worked in a lube shop for 8 months ) The gunk oil treatment all that kinda shit is all atf based. Also, to clean the combustion chamber, has everyone forgotten about misting water into your intake system? The water steam cleans the combustion chamber.

    I REALLY don't think solid lifters on a daily driver would be a good idea. The adjusting they require would be a serious pain in the @ss. Just go get a set of the revised lifters and be happy.
