Re: oil flush?

cos the engine has stood for a couple years, and when i drained the sump there was some gluggy black sediment.

Re: oil flush?

I would try doing an oil change first.....Putting anything in like solvents would not protect the rings and bearings well....

A couple oil changes and new filters.......
