Lifetime Cleaner
engine flush

The Lifetime engine flush cleans the interior of your engine powerfully yet gently. In just a few minutes, highly effective cleaning additives remove oil sludge, oil varnish, coking and other harmful deposits that have accumulated in the engine over many years. When the oil is changed, solid particles and liquid impurities are drained with the waste oil.

Why should engines
be cleaned?

As soon as your engine is used, dirt builds up inside it, leading to:
  • Higher fuel consumption.
  • Higher lubricating oil consumption.
  • Higher maintenance costs due to increased wear and tear.
  • Increased emissions.
  • Particulate emissions.

The product

  • Product type:
    engine cleaner
  • Areas of application:
    inland and maritime shipping, utility vehicles, cars
  • Engines:
    petrol and diesel engines,
    suitable for untreated
    or treated oil pans

for vehicles under 3.5t, the oil pressure switch must be changed after engine flushing.

Where does the cleaner work exactly?

Lifetime engine flushing cleans the interior of the engine, including the piston rings and all parts that come into contact with oil. Fresh engine oil can develop its full lubricating capacity again and piston ring performance will be restored.

The results speak for themselves:

  • The engine regains full power.
  • Emissions are reduced.
  • Inadequate lubrication (e.g. for the turbocharger) is prevented.
  • Fuel consumption is reduced.
  • Engine runs more evenly and with less wear.

Engine flushing FAQs

Could engine flushing damage the engine or seals?
The cleaning agents are very gentle. This helps to protect, for example, the elastomers used in the engine over the long term. And to provide additional protection for the seals, Lifetime does not contain ketones.
When is the ideal time for engine flushing?
Lifetime engine flushing can easily be carried out immediately before a scheduled oil change. The cleaning agent is put into the engine at operating temperature and, after the cleaning process, drained off with the used oil during the oil change. Note: do not operate engine with the cleaner/ waste oil mixture inside.
How often should the engine be cleaned?
An engine's need for cleaning depends on many factors – fuel quality, motorway/city driving ratio and much more. As a guide, we recommend flushing the engine at every other oil change.
What happens to the dissolved impurities? Can they clog the oil strainer or the oil ducts?
During the cleaning process, coarse particles are decomposed, and the viscosity of the engine oil reduced, to such an extent that the dirt is either held in suspension or collected by the oil filter. Changing the oil and filter then ensures that no dissolved particles remain in the system and that the engine oil can flow freely.
What happens to the waste-oil/cleaner mixture that remains in the oil circuit after the oil has been drained?
The special formula of Lifetime Engine Cleaner Dark has been modified so as not to form a chemical compound with the engine oil. This prevents over-acidification of the fresh oil by the small amount of cleaner remaining in the system and prevents the formation of polymers.
