well, faulty lambda will cause fuelling to be all over the place and high emmissions. will cause the car to run rich and drink fuel as well. only 30 for a new one so get it changed

it basicly thins the oil and breakes up harmless sludge build-up.

as soon as you put it in and run the engine it will get around every bearing and shell in the engine, then when you drain it and put new oil in you will never get it all out meaning the oil will be thin. also, the harmless build-up of thick oil can actually help the engine by filling the small cracks and holes that appear over time in an engine, remove this build-up and you could make things worse.

to do a good oil change:


get the oil quite hot
drain the old oil
remove the oil filter, drain it and re-fit.
fill the engine up to minimum with new clean (cheap) oil
run the engine up to normal temperature again
drain oil
remove filter
fit new filter
re-fill with good new oil.

this will flush the old oil out of the engine and is cheaper than engine flush.
