Isn't that what This stuff is supposed to do

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Havoline-ProDS-Synthetic-Motor-Oil-10W30/54468667

and you get 5 quarts of it for under twenty dollars.

All their products look over-priced. No idea if they work as advertised.

The centrally located "German Engineered" placard at the label's bottom screams bovine scat.

The stuff in the cans probably will have some effect but nothing more that the array of products we already don't buy.

It would be so cool if air conditioning ducts could be accessed for a swabbing and disinfection.

Exactly. A can of Berryman's B-12 and bottle of Techron every five or ten fillups should suffice.

Any flush is a risk. Loosen a big chunk of crud that clogs a oil drain hole going to the pan and your engine is toast.

Should have read:

Exactly. A can of Berryman's B-12 and bottle of Techron in the gas tank every five or ten fillups and severe service OCI's and you'll be fine.

300,000 miles / 535,000km on my Santa Fe and nothing like this was ever used. Why is this needed again?

56,000 miles / 90,000km on my Journey. Never used this. Why is this needed again?

Oh and total I have 1.5 million miles behind the wheel. Never used this. Why is this needed again?

What flavor is it? Marvel Mystery Oil is peppermint. That's what I prefer to use in my truck, and after I shave.

Exactly. 344k miles on my Rav4 and never had a need for stuff like this.

I do think Flushes have their place but to suggest they are needed regularly like the video suggests.... liar

Agreed. It's the only way they can really make money, is by duping people into using it @ EVERY oil change. duh
