Engine flush
#3
Heard good and bad things about engine flush. I have always thought of it as a bad thing because it breaks down the oil. When you drain it you only get about 85% of the oil out meaning there is flush still in to damage the new oil and start breaking that down. Also heard stuff about just shifting clumps of oil deposits into bad places etc.


I can't however think of a problem with using just regular flushing oil like this

Basically drain the old oil out --> Fill up to the max point on dipstick with that stuff (Remember to put sump plug back in) --> run the engine on idle for about 15/20 minutes. Few gently revs here and there to build pressure and wash through --> Drain that oil out and change the filter --> Fill with the new oil.

When I did mine it was amazing how dirty the flushing oil got after just 30 minutes of running haha.
