Can anyone recommend a product for engine flushing?

I have used the forte engine flush before but I have come across bg 109?

Anyone used BG109?

The other thing is the slick 50? Has anyone tried this and can anyone recommend adding it to oil.


What is the best stuff to put in the diesel tank to clean injectors, vnt vanes on turbo, clean egr and clean injectors?

Is there any product that can quieten the tappets?

Cheers in advance

There is no need to flush the engine and flushing can be harmful. What can happen is the flush can loosen harmless deposits in the engine, but then not remove them. Your new oil goes in and after it gets warm and is flowing nicely, the bits which are loosened come off into the oil, so you end up with hard bits floating around in your oil - the last thing you want. If you really want to flush the oil system, the best thing you can do is drain out the oil that is in there, put in some basic mineral oil and run the car for a couple of days so it gets the chance to clean it. After running it, drain out the mineral oil and put in the correct oil.

Here's what we think of aftermarket additives
