oil flush?

Hey guys I got my hands on some BG products engine performance restore. Its a engine flush. I read you can use it on diesels and it cleans everything out. Breaks up carbon and deposits. then change oil. Should I do it?

I'd just change the oil and add archoil. As @7.3lf550 said, don't fix it if it ain't broke! You might just create a headache for yourself.

I don't like to be the first kid on the block to try something.

One of the things about the 6.0, is you don't pull enough oil out during an oil change to make the oil lighter it always remains black. I think about 1/8 the oil or about a half gallon stays in the system. One quart is in the High Pressure oil reservoir that doesn't drain, than the rest of the oil is in the rails and the HPOP.

So, you never really get anything you add to the oil out. 1/8 of the additive you put in there will still be in afterwards, so unless it's made to run through the engine constantly, then you probably shouldn't add it.

Also, if it does break up carbon deposits, then these liquid cooled filters have small passages that are located prior to the oil filter, so the cooler actually pre-filters anything going to the filter; however, it is the coolant passages that tend to clog up the cooler and not the oil passages.

Well it seems that I shouldn't do the flush. The directions on the can say put in oil, run engine at 1200rpm for 10 minutes then drain and fill with new oil and put new filter on. It is a solvent so some of will stay in the oil system because of the hpop. I got it for free so no loss to me.

A list perhaps of products you have experience with that destroyed a 6.0?

Say goodbye to diesel woes
November 6, 2007




When most people think of diesels, they’re reminded of smoke belching semis, smelly city buses or noisy, poorly engineered passenger vehicles. These perceptions represent actual disadvantages of yesterday’s diesel engine.

In 2002, International Trucks created the 6.0 Ford Powerstroke engine with hydraulic injectors. It built a reputation as one of the most powerful performers in the light-duty diesel market, plus it’s quiet and clean! Unfortunately, the Ford 6.0 Powerstroke is highly susceptible to carbon deposits in its EGR and air intake system. In less than 20,000 miles, carbon build-up has the potential to completely plug the EGR.

In addition, the high soot content of the diesel engine oil plugs the oil passages causing the injector to misfire. This aggravates existing driveability problems of rough idling, hard starting and poor fuel economy.

Until now, the only way to clean the exhaust and fresh air passages was to physically remove the engine components and have them steam-cleaned. This process is costly and inconvenient and, as a result, rarely performed.

Unparalleled by any other diesel service, the BG Diesel Induction Service chemically cleans each component and completely restores the vehicle to peak performance…without engine tear down! This service moves BG Diesel ISC® Induction System Cleaner,™ PN 25532, through the EGR runners and cavities as well as the air intake. BG EPR® Engine Performance Restoration, PN 10932, is added to the engine oil while the induction service is being performed to clear the oil passages of the hydraulic injectors and restore performance.

The EGR valve is thoroughly cleaned with BG Throttle Body and Intake Cleaner, PN 406.

Got this from diesel bombers. Guy was wasting injectors someone posted this.Well Injector Failures wont really be fixed by going to a larger nozzle. It may even make the problem worse. If your having problems with a 6.0 you need to start by looking at the oil change pattern , what oil and so on. BG Products does a oil system flush thats been known to help! What symptoms are you having and we'll be able to help you a little more!
