3 Benefits of an Engine Flush

Something you should consider taking care of for your vehicle this Fall is an engine flush, which is exactly what it sounds like – it flushes the gunk out of your engine. And during the month of October, we’re offering discounted flushes at all five of the TGK Automotive shops in the Twin Cities.

 

Let’s take a look at three primary benefits of engine flushes.

 

Remove Deposit Build-Up

An engine flush can clear out deposits in the engine to open narrow oil passages clogged by gunk that’s been floating around in the oil. Releasing those deposits and allowing the oil to flow freely saves wear and tear on the engine and keeps parts moving as they should.

 

Clean Up What the Filter Misses
Most oil filters remove particles as small as 25 microns (about 1/1000th of an inch) – but there are particles circulating in your car’s oil that are even smaller – particles that even the newest, best filter can’t keep out of the system. And even tiny little bits like that can cause wear over time. They can also band together to create sludge and deposits.
If these particles become excessive, clean oil alone can’t flush them out. But the chemicals used in an engine flush can – stopping any further wear and giving the new oil a chance to do its job properly.

 

Clean Engine Parts
If the gunk in the engine oil gets too bad, the parts of the engine can get gummed up. An engine flush removes the gunk, which keeps the parts running smoothly. That in turn can make the engine more efficient, bringing the power and fuel efficiency closer to what the car had when it left the showroom floor.
