    I think they mean products such as Slick 50 etc. Engine flush, if not used on a regular basis can loosen bonded deposits on higher milage cars. Just what I learned back at car college anyway. I've just had a major service including engine flush.

    Redex is used for cleaning the injectors or carbs.

    Engine flush goes in the oil and there are many brands. One person I know uses some desiel.

    Hope this helps.

    flushing is unlikely to be necessary in a modern engine as most modern oils have detergents anyway.
