My experience, performance improvement good. After a week, engine camshaft seized. Small particles got carried over to bearing.

Have to be done very carefully. Ensure, nothing leftover in your system.
Filters not to be removed at any point.

Don't waste $$$. Even if previous owner drag the maintenance interval, just fill up with mineral oil and run for 1K, drain off and repeat until you song.

Think i saw autobacs service package is engine flush using 4 litres of fluid leh... unlike the usual one just pour like 400ml of voltronic into engine oil, ask u rev a bit for 10-20 min... then drain out everything...

wonder if that is any good... and autobacs oil change using their vantage oil or other oil is not exactly expensive.... since it comes with the flush... only fear is later, the mechanic tell u this and that need to change... after the normal servicing.

If you care to take time to hunt for engine flush, there are some, maybe harder to find now, engine flush that needs to be added-in and driven for 200-300miles, before going for oil change.
Its becoming harder to find this type of engine flush.

haha..i was doing engine flush and fuel injector all the time every month 10k at C&C, after sometime, i give up after warranty, cos i wake up and find i am a carrot...hahaha...they rabbit me all the time...hahaha....engine flush and fuel injector always hardsell...iss correct, and any SE price also difference, the older SE charges higher and more insistent.. i like this thread...now i am feeling advised. thanks

just fill up with mineral oil and run for 1K, drain off and repeat until you song....is the correct way...but it grinds metal and produces more wear and engine tear thru revving also, so i think just drive normal, they say japanese engine more durable can last 10 years after that...u must be ready to pay...

I always use cheap mineral oil without changing the filter, run 2-3k, drain, if not happy, drain, mineral oil and run another 2-3k den synthetic oil with filter change. Best drain when engine is still hot, oil more liquified.

I changed engine oil and put the used one in a 20L container.
When it's full I'll empty in into a bigger drum.

What comes out during the transfer are clumps of mud-like substance besides the liquid oil.
They settle and form at the bottom of the container due to inactivity and change of temperature.

Those who experience engine failure after engine flush, probably experience these substance being dislodged by the cleaner.

Once it choked the small oil passage, there is no lubrication for the engine and the engine failed.

For those who say they have no problem with engine flush, they are lucky they have not experienced it as yet.

It doesn't mean they will always be that lucky.

You don't need a flush if you have been using good quality synthetic oil.

Take a look at what happen after using Pennzoil Ultra for 1000 mile, works as advertised.

I think when your engine is pretty clean, flushing won't cause much problem. But then, if it's pretty clean, then no point flushing. What's more important is regular engine oil change and to utilise your car regularly.

The most missed point about engine oil change in Singapore is, most don't clock the extended interval of 15/20K or even 30K within 6 months, and most motorists change engine oil only in accordance to distance clocked, and not distance clocked OR 6 months whichever comes first.
