STP engine flush additive - any good?
Bought some Total oil to do a change on my 1.6 HDi - and this stuff was on offer - so I bought some!!
Seems you just add it to a warm engine, before draining, let it run (stationary) for about 15mins, then drain & change oil and filter as normal.

Anyone used it - or seen any reports on it, please?

Hi I had a london taxi fx4 years ago but it came from the factory with a landrover 2.5 petrol engine webber carb and electronic ignition, used this at every oil change 6.000 miles never had a problem.
I'm not sure stirring up the sludge is a good idea with the potential turbo problems.

I guess it would be ok if combined with dropping the sump to clean all the old oil out and clean the oil pick up gauze.

i flush every 1.6hdi i do now with stp or an equivalent never had a turbo problem yet.
Seems like a good idea, then - maybe something I HAVEN'T wasted my money on, then!!
Thanks guys.

I use Forte personally but STP has a good reputation.:thumbsup:

Waste of money if you ask me. You can achieve the same using oil thinners. Don't do it, I doubt you have sludge problems. Inspect your old oil if you think there is something wrong and open your rocker cover to see for problems.
