        Developed a loud, annoying "Tick" on my 1994 Mercury Capri 1.6L with 283,000 miles that I've been driving for 9yrs,78 miles a day to work. Used this product and the annoying "Tick" disappeared, that was 11,000 miles ago and now with 294,000 miles still no "Tick"..great product..

                Comments about Motor Medic Motor Flush:

                I was in the quick lube business for nearly 14 years. I've seen my share of poorly maintained and neglected engines during my career. Had numerous cars come through my shop that read full on the dipstick, yet wouldn't even drain when the plug was removed. We always used this engine flush as directed and I've always been amazed at how much 'gunk' would drain after it was circulated in the engine.

                I just recently used it in my own engine after I repaired a cracked cylinder head and had some excessive buildup in my oil pan and valve covers. Poured this stuff in per the directions and let it idle for about 10 minutes. As the title says, it works as advertised.

                      I have a 2002 chevy Silverado with the 5.3 vortec motor and my lifters started to not pump up and I was loosong oil pressure. I went to advance and they recommended this oil flush with the engine optimizer for after the flush. I followed the easy steps and got great results. It cleaned my engine restored the oil pressure and now I am not worried about replacing my engine.

                                  This stuff really works. The oil collected in my pan was incredibly black and seemed to have particles in it...and I know I hadn't driven my SUV in any extremely dirty areas. It's a 1997 and I decided to try this product to see if it worked. It does. I followed the directions and got excellent results...the SUV runs very smoothly. I will repeat the treatment at my next oil change since my vehicle has 160,000 miles on it and I bought it used--and don't know if this has ever been done before. Based upon the results of my first test, I think the second usage will complete the job. I highly recommend this!

                                    Used half the bottle on my 89 Jeep Cherokee 4.0L i6 with 165k miles and the other half on my moms 2006 Cadillac SRX 3.6L V6 with 95k miles. If you are afraid of loosened sludge getting stuck somewhere, then use half the bottle for 3-4min instead of 5. Repeat that every time and you wont have any more sludge. I recommend buying very good synthetic oil after using this.

                                        Hi Eggs, good question! Yes, the oil can be drained after the motor flush is used and your crackcase will not be overfilled. You can follow these directions while using this flush. Check that the engine oil is at a safe level of operation. Then add motor flush to a cold engine before changing the filter and oil. Idle engine at normal speed for 5 minutes. The motor flush will circulate throughout the entire lubricating system of your engine removing sludge, gums and varnishes from the engine and oil pan. It also frees the sticking valves and rings. Then drain oil and remove the oil filter. Finally replace the filter and drain plug and refill engine with new oil.

Motor flush is used for the removal of accumulated gums, varnishes and sludge from internal engine parts Circulated through the engine for 5 minutes before an oil change and especially before changing the oil filter, motor flush will free sticky valves and piston rings allowing oil to circulate freely to all parts of the motor Easy pour bottle 32 oz.

                                        Hi Kyle, the Motor Medic Motor Flush (Part No. MF3) directions are as follows: 1. Check to make certain oil in crankcase is up to safe level. 2. Add MOTORMEDIC Motor Flush to cold engine before changing oil and filter. Idle engine at normal speed for 5 minutes. DO NOT DRIVE THE VEHICLE. MOTORMEDIC Motor Flush will circulate throughout the entire lubricating system of your engine dissolving sludge, gums and varnishes from engine and oil pan. It also frees sticking valves and rings. 3. Drain crankcase and remove oil filter. Replace drain plug and install new oil filter. NOTE: On engines with 75,000 miles or excessive deposits, remove and clean the oil pan to minimize the risk of engine damage. 4. Refill crankcase with oil. NOTE: Extremely dirty engines may require repeat treatment. Follow directions 1 to 4.

                                      I managed to get water in my oil, drained it ready to add fresh & see what happens. Any hints on an additive that will eliminate the residual water. I know I'm a bonehead!

                                        I would not suggest you for the Liquid Wrench High-Mileage 5-Minute Motor Flush as this works to remove sludge and varnish to free sticky valves, rings and drain passages. You may have an issue with the drain valve in the oil filter housing, but it sounds most like a bad gerator pump (low pressure oil pump). However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

                                      my car has about 110k miles, and I got the car when it was about 90k miles. I normally use full synthetic oil. I was thinking about using one of these products right before oil change. I get mix feeling from the answers here.
                                      Basically I wanted to know if I put this product in my car, and drive to get oil change which is like 10 miles away; will it do any adverse effect to my car engine given that my car won't be in the idle state for about 10-15 mins?
                                      Also if my engine gets damaged by using this product, does the manufacturer pay for the new engine?
                                      thanks

                                        This Liquid Wrench High-Mileage 5-Minute Motor Flush with Part No. MF3 is safe to use in your 100K+ mile car. It is recommended to only run it for 5 minutes and then dump the oil and you have to do that in Idle and NOT when driving. When you are not draining the Gunk after use, it might create problems. So follow the instructions and use this Motor flush and you will see the difference. Sorry, the manufacturer will not pay for any of the losses occurred.

                                        Any engine flush is based on diesel byproducts. If flush is left in the system, it will remove some gunk and soften anything remaining, BUT the oil will not be so effective as lubricant as it will be dissolved and on top of that all the dirt will be recirculated in the system.Now any additional additives in the flush could be reactive with some metals or can degrade any rubber parts or gaskets in the system.It is better to drain the engine from flush and old oil and if you are not happy with the result flush it one more time.
