motor flush

how do you guys feel about this product? I'm thinking of trying it on my next oil change because I've noticed that my oil gets dirty faster than normal...and I'm wondering if anyone on here has tried it and with what kind of results?

I wouldn't do it on a high mileage engine.
What do you consider "dirty faster than normal?"

Dang. Like completely black? That seems unusual. Usually for me, I can do a fresh oil change and it's pure clean, but after I run the motor it has a brown to it. And never gets black before the next oil change.

yea mines gets darker than id like maybe I'm just being too picky but I'm thinking of taking off the oil pan next oil change and making sure the screen for the oil pick up isn't clogged or something doesn't look like to much work anyways

Ya..... That's carbon ..... Oil should stay transparent between oil changes, 3-5k miles.

It's happend to my 88 s10 blazer too. I think it's have a worn piston o-rings. Whole thing burn though the piston to oil pan. That's my option. Might I'm wrong or not.

If the screen was clogged you'd be having low oil pressure issues.
How's your fuel mileage / fuel consumption?
Sounds like the engine is running too rich.

o by the way it didn't run bad it haulls a$$ and everything i think it's just my oil gauge that's bad

It's normal for oil pressure to fluctuate.
The short drives are your black oil problem.
The engine doesn't get fully warmed up. and therefore is always running rich.

would letting my car warm up longer or moving my oil change date up by half solve my problem?

Reducing the oil change interval is probably the best bet.
