    Actually, I'd do it this way. Get a can of BG EPR motor flush and run that through the motor. Then immediately do an oil change with the Shell Rotella T6 and leave it in for 5k miles. Than after that go back to your Pentosin.

    Running the T6 for only a week won't accomplish much by itself.

    Hmmm, yeah I actually already decided against doing a motor flush. Don't want to risk doing more damage than good.

    There is no risk as long as the directions are followed. I flushed my motor and it is flawless. But whatever.

    To each their own. I was initially going to do a flush, even bought the motor medic fluid, but then decided against it after seeing so much opposition on the forums. I will leave it as a last resort, after consulting with some more people, after the more important issues have been dealt with.
    Thanks for your help though. What made you choose BG EPR as opposed to other types of flush?

    I recently had to repair my DISA due to to regular rattle (only had 49k miles on it and actually looked pretty good still). Used the G.A.S. repair kit ($70) which provides reassurance, too, that DISA parts won’t fall into the engine.

    I realized I never got back about my problem. The sound I was hearing at cold start was indeed sticky lifters. After 2 oil changes, I never hear that sound anymore. BUT now I am back to discuss that I also am hearing a VANOS rattle at 1750 rpm, even after doing the beisan anti-rattle kit. I even checked the pistons after installing the new rings, and there was very minimal axial play; much less than originally. OP, is there anyway you could elaborate on the loose heat shield connection?
