How to flush engine


The most common way to flush an engine is by draining the oil. Put 1 gallon of engine flush treatment in. Start vehicle and allow to run for 5 minutes. Drain the flush treatment, and add the recommended amount of oil.

How do I flush the radiator?


your choices are take it to a radiator shop for a pressure flush,or you can try a chemical flush from cans that they sell in parts stores.a chemical flush does not even come close to a pressure flush.but you will need to flush engine too.

Hi, A service center just recommended an engine flush for my 2001 xj8 vanden plas. I wondered if this is a Jaguar recommended service? Thanks, Andrew


I'm guessing they mean the cooling system. It is a good idea with any engine to have it flushed periodically. Permanent antifreeze is not permanent. It needs to be repaced regularly and it is a good idea to flush the system to clean out loose gunk when you do this. Unless Jaguar says NOT to do it, it should be done especially if it has never been done on your car. Hope this helps.

Engine flushing


If you are talking about an engine oil system flush, NO

If you take care of your car, change oil at recomended miles or time, use good quality oil and filters, then a system flush will do nothing for you but lighten your wallet.

Flush engine - transmission


Engine & Transmission Flush

You might have been told, by your dealer or mechanic that your engine oil or transmission fluid are very dirty, & an engine or transmission flush, is recommended. The flush will clean the engine or transmission, & those will last longer. This is only part true a clean engine or transmission will last longer, but I'm not sure that flushing them is the best way to clean them.


What Is An Engine Or Transmission Flush?

Flushing is forcing high pressure of fluid against the normal flow of the fluid. In simple words if the normal flow is left to right, the flush would force the fluid right to left.

This is done by connecting a machine that will force special solvents back through the engine and transmission. The idea is that by forcing cleaning solvents backwards through the system, it will get all the junk and garbage that has formed over time and "flush" it out of the system. In theory this sounds very good, but in practice, it can be dangerous.


The Dangers of Flushing your Engine or Transmission

Flush machines force high pressure cleaning solvents back through the engine and transmission and clean out some of the accumulated junk that has formed, so far all is good. Now the problems start, engines have small passages and galleries through which oil or automatic transmission fluid flow and there are one-way valves that keep the fluids from backtracking for whatever reason.

By using an aggressive cleaning procedure like flushing, large chunks of accumulated sludge are broken off and forced backwards through these galleries and valves and, more often than not, lodge tightly and block them. This cuts off the normal flow of the fluid and causes lack of lubrication in an engine and abnormal or no shifting in a transmission. The results are expensive repairs, or more often, engine or transmission replacement.

That's my knowledge about the subject, hope it was helpful,
Joe.
