    It sounds crazy. I am thinking to clean/flushed the engine of my 100K km mileage myvi by changing the EO again after the second day of changing EO.

    Do you think this will work or waste of EO?

    What?

    meaning Monday - Change EO and filter. Tues - Change EO and filter again?

    No point. If you're gonna do that - might as well run it for about 100km before the change. Or flush with Royal Purple oil during your oil change.

    A waste if u have been changing the oil regularly.

    Anyway i have been changing semi syn oil at mileage of only 5k km and fully syn at well below 10k km. Thats a waste too as it can still be used.However Tesco is selling oil at cheap price so i really dont mind.

    Service mostly according to mileage and time

    Monday Change EO and oil filter, tuesday change EO again. My mileage daily about 100km.
    Flushing with Engine Oil Flush. heard alot of bad stories when googled

    just use higher quality oil in slightly shorter interval than usually recommended...

    that would fine enough...



    OR

    like me...i'm using diesel engine oil in petrol car...its really clean internally

    as heavy as lorry... :rofl:


    nope.. works just fine...


    not only on 1 car... but multiple car i currently own...non turbo and turbo...normal daily drive and weekend fast drive...

    key is always keep oil at good level and oil change interval dont drag longer than recommended...(shorter is better..just dont too short like u did)..that is a big waste

    Engine flush is also not good for a car that has high mileage.

    That's not what I wrote la.. I said flushing with Royal Purple oil. Super high detergents amount in their formulation. Using expensive fully syn oil to flush. HAHA

    If really want to do it, buy cheap single grade oil SAE30 to flush then refill with your normal FS

    What's the point and what do you hope to achieve? Recalibrating the butt dyno? Bear in the mind that the filter which you choose not to replace, contains a fair amount of tainted oil.

    okok. thanks for all inputs, looks that regular change intervals / maintenance is the best.
    Thanks

    Out of curiosity, did you open the oil filler cap and see a lot of muck, sludge or varnish in the engine?

    seriously?
    Whats your oil change interval all these while?

    My campro got no sludge at 100k, only some varnish due to high revving action.

    If you have discernible sludge, might I suggest maybe an actual engine flush or even try diesel EO ?

    But replace the filter please.

    As mentioned initially thought of using for a while only, more to flush the engine, but engine became more quiet so I continue using. Now already use for a few years already and oil is cheap. Around RM80 for 7L......lol Mine is Pennzoil 15w-40
