Any idea what is the difference betweeen the oil the engine uses and atf for the rings? Why would atf be a better choice?
Atf will dissolve the carbon build up and free the rings, oil will just sit there. yes pouring down throat is an option I typically don't recommend that method for the fear if not done correctly rods can be bent, fluids typically don't compress well, also you don't know if the mixture actually got into all 8 holes, either way just ensure you get a good soaking to dissolve the carbon.
