An engine flush (in regard to an overdue oil change) is an additive that is put into the crankcase. Usually these take 3-5 minutes of the vehicle idling to dissolve gum/sludge/varnish deposits that build up when you go over the recommended interval. There is much dispute as to whether or not this service is any good at all. Some recommend using transmission oil instead of a brand of 'engine flush'.
A radiator flush, or transmission flush consists of an exchange of the coolant, or transmission oil. These are usually performed with a machine that hooks into your hoses or lines and when your vehicle is idling, circulates the fluid through the machine and transfers new fluid into your vehicle. These are recommended by the manufacturer at specific intervals.
I would try an engine flush to clean the hydraulic lifters. Follow the directions on the can.
I believe it is because most people are right handed and wipe with their right hand. By putting the flush handle on the left, most people will use their left hand to flush, theoretically, the cleaner of the two hands.
its my understanding that its a screen and does need to be changed.i would just get a flush with a trans flush machine.
No, you need to drain and flush the system.
If you wait for a transmission to have problems before you have it professionally flushed, you've waited to long. It really depends on your driving conditions but in most cases I would flush it every 50K, it will pay in the long run.
can crack the engine.
Do you mean flush the oil (not recommended) or flush the coolant?
No they are completely different. A engine flush will only clean the engine a transmission flush will only clean the transmission. These two components use two different kinds on fluid therefor they can not be mixed together.
Not far, anyway. The engine flush is not engine oil ... its only purpose is to, hopefully, clean the inside of the engine areas. That's why it's called "Engine Flush" and not "Engine Oil". Get it out and put the new oil in soon.
Add Engine Flush to the motor oil at running temperature before changing the oil. After adding the product, allow the engine to idle for approx. 10 minutes. Then change the oil and the filter. Engine Flush is compatible with all commercially available motor oils. We recommend cleaning the engine interior with Engine Flush before every oil change.
You will not damage the engine but you can damage the radiator if you use any high pressure. If you only flush and apply no pressure you will do no damage. Use a chemical flush and a water hose and you will be safe.
To flush an engine of coolant in the engine of a Kian Spectra refer to the manual. Auto manuals can be purchased at auto part retails or in bookstores.
You still need to flush the engine block and heater core.
I do it befor every oil change, and my engine is very silent
An engine flush can be done by draining the coolant system. Disconnect the top and bottom radiator hoses, and keep filling the top hose outlet with the engine running, allowing the water to run through and flush the system. Take care to not run the engine too long or it will overheat.
If coolant is rusty or dirty - yes
