What Is the Best Way to Flush the Engine
Problems in engine operation are often connected to contaminations in the engine. Clogged oil channels, stuck piston rings, lacquer and carbon deposits — all this leads to loss of engine power, compression reduction, oil burning and cylinder and parts scoring.
Certainly there are mild detergent additives in motor oil, but in case of severe contamination they can’t really help you.
The best solution is regular engine flushing with special compositions.
Engine flushing is necessary:
- by intensive operation;
- when using low-quality oil and/or fuel;
- when buying a pre-owned car with unknown maintenance.
But to be really sure that your engine is clean, specialists recommend regular engine flushing. Today, there are various flushing agents available on the market, such as flushing oils, soft flushes, quick five-minute flushes, and flushes containing special additives.
We would like to draw your attention to a well-established XADO product — VitaFlush. It efficiently dissolves tar and lacquer deposits which then can be removed together with used oil.
Application of VitaFlush is quite simple: just introduce it into the engine before the oil change and then idle the engine for 10–15 minutes or drive 20 km (15 miles). Intensive cleaning requires the run of about 150–200 km, or 100 miles.
The agent acts softly and doesn’t damage rubber, which is why nothing bad is going to happen to your car even in case of a considerable overrun (up to 1,000 km/600 miles).
To see for yourself how effective VitaFlush is, you can conduct a simple experiment. Before introducing the flushing agent, collect some used oil. After flushing the oil system collect the same amount of oil into an identical see-through container.
Tilt both samples a little and compare their transparency — the oil collected before flushing is much clearer, therefore, a significant part of contaminations was stuck on parts surfaces and prevented the engine from quality operation.
Furthermore, each portion of the drained oil contains up to three grams of metal worn off from the inner surfaces of engine parts. Simple calculations show that after 20 oil changes the engine loses up to 60–70 grams of metal — the same weight as that of a small bearing! Such metal loss equals critical wear.
VitaFlush contains a unique substance, REVITALIZANT®, which “catches” up to 70% of metal shavings during flushing and returns them to operating surfaces thus saving the engine from costly repairs or a premature overhaul.
There is another amazing flushing agent also manufactured by XADO company — TotalFlush. It possesses an added decarbonization effect, cleans the oil system up to the level of technical purity, and, just like VitaFlush, contains REVITALIZANT®, therefore, can protect the engine from wear. It is applied in the same way as Vitaflush: just introduce it into the oil system before the oil change for 10–20 minutes or drive 20 km (15 miles). In case of severe contamination drive 150–200 km, but not more, because, due to its decarbonization effect, this agent is very active!
Flush the engine whenever you change the oil and its operation will become much quieter and smoother. Application of VitaFlush or TotalFlush with REVITALIZANT® will also prolong its service life expectancy.
