I bought my car in december 2000 with 22k miles and i have 3 dealer services and 3 intrem oil changes by dealer and 2 oil changes done by myself and every time i use engine flush. So i say yes to flush. Oh and my car has done 49624 miles :) Lee :wave:

@ Red_ Sxi do u really think u need to use engine flush?? uve got a relatively new car dont u??? as long as u regularly change oil and filter u shouldnt have to. i change every 5000km n totally disregard the books 15000km recommendation.

i know u guys wont do this but u can also use desiel fuel. no i'm not a quack but it works the same as degreaser but for half the price of engine flush.....unless desiel is expensive there.

put the engine flush in first before u empty the sump run it for bout 10 mins then when the oils fairly warm not too hot undo the sump and drain oil. Simple :)

u buy it from any motor store, its called engine flush, and you do exactly what it says on the tin

u shouldn't use engine flush on high mileage cars though unless its been constantly done before, as there is a chance you can dislodge a big lump of buildup & this get stuck somewhere else causing all sorts of damage

How is this done?

I take it that i remove all the oil from the engine first, then put this solution through the engine let it run through and then drain out?

And where to i buy if from?

A speedy reply is appreciated as i'm servicing my mates car today.
