    Flushing is just an extra expense. Adequate na ang simpleng oil drain then change the oil. If you have the money then go for it.

    i have read somewhere that you are not recommended to oil flush. this is because these oil flushings are used to make the oil "malabnaw" - - thus allowing it to be drained easily. but, most of the time all of the oil (together with the oil flush) does not get drained. so, when you put in your new oil it seems to still have some flushing left in it.

    Caltex Delo 500 instead of engine flush.
    Delo 500 is a high detergent oil designed for multi-fuel fleet use.

    Change your oil to Delo 500, change your oil filter too.
    After 1000-1500kms.
    Change it again to what you normally use.
    This is what we do when we come across engines which we do not know the service history of.

    Sa bagong overhauled engine lang namin gamit ang flushing (1000km) . After that change oil lang. Sa CR, now that's a different story.:mrgreen:

    Of course, like most things nowadays, there's a condition attached when using flushing oils. In an old engine you really don't want to remove all the deposits. Some of these deposits help seal rings, lifters and even some of the flanges between the heads, covers, pan and the block, where the gaskets are thin. I have heard of engines with over 280,000km that worked fine, but when flushed it failed in a month because the blow-by past the scraper ring(now really clean)contaminated the oil and screwed the rod bearings.

    pdc2, follow Auto_Xer's advice. :wink:
