If oil is changed on schedule, you shouldn't have to flush the engine." There may be a few instances where an engine flush is required, but be aware that engine technology has progressed to the point that many newer vehicles not only don't need and engine flush, they may be harmed by the procedure.

When you remove the buildup your engine will run more efficiently and just plain perform better. Many quick lube type places will claim that you need to flush your engine every 5,000 to 10,000 miles. This is not true. Many modern engines can go 35,000 before needing a flush.
