RE: Engine Flush???
sokoloff - 7/11/2005 6:27 AM
I would say that no engine flush is required under any circumstancxes. Synthetic will clean the engine in a short period of time anyway.
See http://www.whnet.com/4x4/oil.html for approved oils.
Can anyone reading the page posting of appoved oils provide a clear explanation of the which, why and what for?? The list is confusing. With a 2000 W210 with the 3.2L 6 there is an obvious choice of the Mobil One Supersyn 0-40, but not the 5-30 ?? and then further down the 5-40 and 5-50 seems OK? That sounds like diesel molasses[:0] And then some non-PAO synthetics and old fashioned dino oil blends (Valvoline DuraBlend) are (somehow) OK.
What happened to meeting API classifications (SM, SJ, SL) and move on ??
Now: 2010 GLK350 4Matic Then: 2003 C320 4Matic, 2006 E320 CDI, 2000 E320, 1994 E320, 1991 190E, 1985 300D, 1983 300D
