I think it would be better to use a flush because any metal potentially stuck in sludge or soft deposits could be carried out. Also because the oil would be thinned down it seems logical that it could wash the metal & crud out better.Thanks, I did consider using a flushing product it heard so many people saying not to use them as they dissolve a lot of gunk that can get into and block small passages.
I planned on doing the process you suggested but instead of a flushing oil to use a cheaper grade oil for the “flush”
Would a flushing product be better at flushing out metal particles than a flushing oil, thought the flushing oil uses chemicals to dissolve built up sludge, so more for engines that have been neglected and are pretty dirty.
Happy to give it a go if it’s better than using regular oil, not too bothered about sludge build up, my engines pretty clean inside as it’s always had regular oil changes.
That’s just me thinking what I might would do in your situation. There maybe better ways I’m not thinking about though so those are just my best ideas.
Either way I hope it works out the best way possible for you, brother.
