    Bought some of that stuff you add to the oil, and let the car idle for 20-30 min, before you drain it. But how to go from there? Do you add new cheap oil and run it through again, (without idle) before you add what the car is gonna run with? I have seen the oil that comes out the second round, and it is all black and filled with sludge and gunk, but is it necessary?

    like i said ive never used it before and everytime my car has had a oil change, either me or garage, its never been used.

    I heard that it removes the lube that assembles engine components but ive have no proof, just worder of mouth.

    Dont quote me on this but i think you need to pure the engine flush into the engine, go for a short (and I mean short) drive to get everything moving, then drain the oil from the sump plug.
