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.

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

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.
