There is good maintenance that should be performed on engines. Changing plugs, wires, throttle bore cleaning, air induction service, fuel injector service, air filter, pcv replacement etc. I do not believe in oil flushing. If you change your oil regularly at 3000 miles or 3 months, you should have no need to flush. If the oil is getting dark too quick, then change it more often. Putting things where they don't belong causes trouble...Ask Micheal Jackson. 77,000 miles is not a lot of miles on an engine these days, if it is properly maintained. If you have a voice telling you to do something nice for your engine and just can't control it, then switch to mobil 1 synthetic oil, but don't switch back and forth.

First buy a can of flush to put in your engine oil. then run your engine for a few days to get hot and breakdown the sludge and varnish inside the engine. Change the engine oil while it is hot and refill with good quality oil. I always use castrol synthetic as a personal preference.

The engine dipstick is the only tool you can use to measure how much oil is in the engine.

I wouldn't recommend it. Vegetable cooking oil is for cooking not for lubrication.

Engine sludge formation includes, lack of proper maintenance, inappropriate oil temperature, use of an inferior engine oil, and engine oil contamination. You can try flushing it out with an oil flush additive but often times this does more harm than good.
