I dont know if this has been post before but everyone needs to watch this video! Its kind of long so scan through it. The guy cleans an extremely sludged up engine by pouring 1/2 gal of all purpose cleaner/degreaser into the engine with a qt of oil....Money shots start at the 9:00 minute and 16:00 minute mark

And he uses Mobil 1 on one of those flushes. That cannot be good for your vehicle.

Did this guy pour a water soluble alkaline cleaner into his engine and run it? What? This is insane.

Reading the title, I thought GHT was back on the site.

BTW, drains it into the used oil drum. How is one to recycle that?

Even if an engine makes it through a flush does not mean the flush chemicals have not damaged the bearings for example.

My neighbor buys that stuff from the local Rite Aid Pharmacy. He gave me some bottles to use for cleaning up around the house. It's basically a light cleaner, degreaser, stain remover...and very cheap at $1 a bottle. I'd recommend it for numerous uses. In automotive use, for cleaning EXTERIOR of engines or carpet stains. Contains 2 butyl-ethanol.

This colorless liquid has a sweet, ether-like odor, as it derives from the family of glycol ethers, and is a butyl ether of ethylene glycol. As a relatively nonvolatile, inexpensive solvent of low toxicity, it is used in many domestic and industrial products because of its properties as a surfactant.

Wiki

Used in oil industry, spills, automotive, even in foods. It's a hazardous substance in Calif. Breaks down fairly quickly in air.

Nothing wrong with Mobil 1, but you have to admit that's a waste of good oil for his flush. In the video he says he didn't want to run out and get some other oil since that is all he had on hand. spank
