Question Amsoil Engine Flush

Anyone out there ever done an engine flush using the Amsoil Engine Flush just to get all the sludge and junk out of your engine? Was thinking about doing this as it seems to be a very simple job. Really all you do is pour it in the engine, let the engine idle about 10-15 min. and then do an oil change. Or so I've heard that's how easy...lol Any experience or words of wisdom on this task is appreciated. Thank You

I worked at Valvoline for a few years while I was still in high school. They have a product like that, but say not to do it on engines with over 100k miles. I had an old vw jetta that I used seafoam brand engine flush on before, I couldn't tell much of a difference afterwards.

Seems like ages ago, but we had a product like that back in the day, it was called kerosene.

I haven't used any of the modern products as I've not flushed a motor in forever.

The down side to flushing is some of the gunky stuff it breaks loose will end up in the oil pump pick up screen if it becomes clogged oil pressure will drop sometimes to dangerously low levels,I would leave well enough alone & just change the oil & filter.

It's just one more thing they have come up with to try to entice people to open their wallets for. I wouldn't waste my $$$ on it.

Just change your oil on a regular basis. With the quality of oil these days there's really no need for additives.

I did something like this on a high mile slant 6 back in the day. It turned a decent motor into a smoking mess. It knocked all the stuff good and bad outta the motor.

Thanks for the feedback. I think I will steer clear of this, but when you get that maintenance bug, you start thinking of all sorts of things to do...lol
