This always works for me.drain aquart,litre of oil from motor & top up with Transmission Fluid (automatic).Has great cleaning ability. I would recommend you purchase a product called Seafoam Motor Treatment. I have seen this product work wonders on sticky lifters. Here is their website. http://www.seafoamsales.com/motorTuneUpTechGas.htm Advance Auto Parts and lots of other auto parts and marine supply stores have it. Follow the directions to the letter. It may take 2-3 treatments to solve the problem. It is not cheap, but excellent products rarely are.
Without removing and disassembling the engine, Sea Foam oil treatment is a good product for this.
