    I would say that's a good plan Jase :thumbsup:

    I don't like the idea of adding products to oil. At least after flushing and a couple of changes you should be rid of any muck.

    Another reason to do an annual or 10k oil change using fully synthetic.

    In short, sludge is uncurable but it can be stopped if it is detected early. Auto-RX is your best bet like Elberoth said.

    Hope it works for you because sludge can cause oil pump failure which is not good for your car or wallet.
