My newly acquired 78K mile 2.7t seems to have way more oil gunk inside than=
 other high mileage Audi's I have owned (KH, WX, 7A). I was hoping to be ab=
le to clean this motor out over time. But I am unfamiliar wit any products =

My initial thought was to use a brand of oil with more solvents and conduct=
 a few changes more frequently, like every 2000 miles. I have seen some pro=
ducts that claim to "clean" out the internals, but I am somewhat skeptical =
about these. Would dropping the oil pan and cleaning the lower end of the m=
otor be a good idea?
