    The Flushing could be made cost effective by re-utilising the flushed engine oil (500kms.) , later on after ur next oil change , as the oil contamination in 500 kms would be hardly noticeable.

    Don't go for flushing of such a hi mileage engine. Let it remain so. The reasons you've asessed correctly. Plus if the loose sludge post flushing gets deposited in the sump, then it can block the oil pick up and effects of that would be ruinous.

    @mescotc

    Oil once drained that way is good only to go into the dustbin. Else, the soot which it would've cleared would go back into the engine.

    Ive clocked @8500 , can I strain the oil ( through a fine cloth / or filter paper(s) ) ? the oil will be much cleaner & then opt for a oil change at 15k ?

    dont try funny things. go for oil change. mumbai traffic and 8500kms is enough for semi synthetic oil :)

    no this will be disaster for car :)n lol.

    With the oil in when you engine is hot pour the entire contents of flush in the oil.
    idle your car for 3-4 minutes.

    drain the oil completely till the last drop.

    pour in fresh oil.

    you are done.

    The above mentioned procedure is a recipe for disaster.

    Do not try it on bikes or cars.

    The flushing procedure is same for diesel and petrol engines. Add flushing solution, start engine, idle it for atleast 4-5 mins. I personally prefer varying the rpm's rather than idling, but not revving high.

    For petrol engines one can consider using a diesel engine oil, idling the engine for a few minutes then draining and refilling the engine with the correct oil recommended by the manufacturer. This is because diesel engine oil has a high detergent level. This is a widely used and safe method for petrol engines.

    Can we buy Selenia WR (+the oil filter) off the shelf or do we have to entrust this oil change to a TASS? I would prefer to change the oil every 7500km at most.
