How did the kero soaking work out for ya?
Did it at least remedy the low oil pressure?
I have the vw oil sludge problem.
I have heard mixed reviews between Auto-RX, SeaFoam, diesel soaking, kero soaking, ATF and just get rid of it. I cannot seem to find 1 definitive source of truth.
I am about to drop the pan and go the manual cleansing route as I believe that the screen is partially clogged due to sludging.
The community desparately needs a solution for this.
There was a class action lawsuit recently settled, but it only covers you if 10yr/120k miles or under and have perfect documentation.
--sounds like you are looking @ some damage to yours as you had run it dry. I cringe cold starting my 1.8T, cuz it sounds like she is crying before the oils get to her topside.
