Engine flush, when needed?
To clean our motors...
Many years ago, Grandpa and dad always mixes some kerosene in the dirty oil of our ill-running car engines. This rinsed-out the gunk on those dirty pistons, bearings and gears - and keeps the new oil bit cleaner.
Those cleaners were harmful and you took your chance - using them. Most people knew that!
Solvents destroy the oil lube film on moving parts that keeps them lubricated. Does that speak of a possible danger to the motor? Yes!
I noticed there are online experts:
In the taking apart of engines - the parts that needed to be cleaned - sticky rings, valves, lifters and combustion areas. That is where the cause of most problems are located.
They cannot be helped by adding solvent flush or automatic transmission fluid to the oil - as they are way to weak - and also harmful.
Back in the old days,
It did not matter if the kerosene and solvent cause any damage as new parts would be replacing the worn ones, anyway.
We all thought it helped some! But...
But, back then, every engine was overhauled every two or three years. So, if it helped, who knew?
Did you know...
Motor flush additives sold in parts stores and quick-lubes today are kerosene or solvents mixes from the Model A days a hundred years ago?
The bad thing about kerosene and solvent additives as a cleaner for today's engines is this:
Today's cars use
Larger spaces back then required 30w or 40w weight oil - to lube properly - thin oil would get sucked-out and burned.
Part store, and quick-lube
There is not much of a film there between moving parts separating your pistons, bearings, and gears.
With solvents removing the film - damage and danger may follow. So those kinds of flushes are no good!
What is a good cleaner for my motor - to clean & protect it?
I'll get to that answer in a moment.
As you can imagine, those part-store, and quick-lube solvent flush products can increase metal-to-metal abrasion and friction. As they circulate, those solvents wipes-away the oil film, and moving parts touch.
That is no good! And, those products tell you to "never rev up the motor with their product inside.'Does that sound safe to you?
Read their labels because...
That type cleaning starts abrasion - and down the road, eats away many years of life off your car life.
