Dragboat,

Looks like a parts cleaner or industrial solvent. Handle carefully.

"Little Coffee Cup Seal Test" Guys, I'm sure you know that there are many chemistries that will NOT HARM SEALS. They won't cause swelling after
you have used them to clean your engine. What good is it if the seals start leaking? Perhaps because XXX Product cleaned so fast that
third party abrasives lodged behind those seals? XXX Products don't liquify anything; pieces dislodged go to the filter or the oil pan (if all goes well), the exception is seals. They have an affinity for third party abrasives which means "leaks".

Same here Sprintman.

I think I'll stick with Neutra or Auto_Rx as well.

Thanks for all the replies! I think I will just give the Schaeffers 131 Neutra a try. I just wish that it was a little easier to find. I will order it through this website.

See this thread for my experience with CD2 Oil Detergent. Summary - my oil consumption rate in a Saturn SL2 almost doubled. So it worked, but not like I had hoped.
[Eek!] Saturn rings stuck

Katsdad,

I was wondering the same thing. Autozone is the only place I know of that sells KW Flush around here. I think I'll go buy a can of it (only $2.50) and mix it with the correct ratio of oil to flush and put it in a coffee cup like Bob said. It doesn't suprise me it ate away at the cup because there was no oil in it. KW does advertise that it is harmless to moving parts, so there might some merit to that. Other flushes I've seen didn't advertise that.

Probably...I used it at my last oil change. Not sure if it did anything per se. Personally though, I don't see the coffee cup analysis as being worth much as there is NO styrofoam in one's engine. Secondly, the stuff MIXES with the oil and hence, even though the chemicals may be toxic and damaging on their own, when diluted with the existing oil, they probably only "beef-up" what's already in the oil to begin with so that more extensive cleaning may occur. I think unlike auto-rx though, that you're only getting a 'surface' cleaning and/or a rinsing effect...kinda like mouthwash vs. a professional cleaning.

on my first car ever i had a junky motor with high miles... lifters, or something, tapped like crazy. 2 bottles of the cd-2 stopped it (the stuff in yellow bottles claiming to quiet lifters, valves)

eldawg4100, how long did you keep it in there though? It seems like the instructions are vague..."you just add to the oil when doing oil change or anytime"...but, it doens't give a proper cleaning interval.

Was it the Cd-2 that is the oil detergent stuff or the thick stuff to stop leaks and or quiet lifters?

I'm gonna go buy some CD-2 oil detergent and see what it does to a coffey cup. Will post the results later today.

Oh I almost forgot I'll also get some Rislone detergent and see what it does to the cup. The thing is though is I can't find the add anytime formula anywhere around here. I'll keep looking but so far I've been to Autozone, O'Reilly, and Wal-Mart. They only carried the 1 quart stuff. I'll go to Advanced today and see if they have it, but I doubt they will.
