Engine Oil Flush Service

One of the numerous significant functions of car engine oil is to maintain a clean engine by removing impurities and contamination. The amber colored brand new engine oil will turn black or get gritty as it dissolves dirt from the engine. In regular oil change, the oil is replaced that keeps the engine clean. In some cases, there is a residual sludge on the engine and the engine oil flush becomes essential. An engine oil flush is carried out during oil change and it helps cleaning the engine to keep it running smoothly.

Engine Oil flush cost

It depends on the type of car you drive and the auto repair shop you go to. Our mechanics are mobile, which means they don't have the overhead that repair shops have. They provide you convenience by coming to your home or office.

What is an engine oil flush?

An engine oil flush flushes the gunk off your engine. Usually, an engine oil flush is carried out with an oil change. Once the old oil is removed, the chemicals are poured into the engine that is then idled for sometime to ensure the cleaning agent reaches all the areas where oil normally goes. The chemicals are then drained and clean oil is poured in.

When to get an engine oil flush?

An engine oil flush is necessary if you:

  • Have not had your car oil changed for a long period of time.
  • Do a lot of stop and go driving.
  • Let your car sit idle for months
  • Bought a second hand car and are not sure if the oil was changed frequently.

What to expect?

An expert mechanic will come to your office or home to perform engine oil flush with your oil change.

How it's done?

The old oil will be removed by an expert mechanic after which engine cleaner will be poured in. Your car will be then idled for a few minutes to ensure that the cleaning agent reaches every spot in the engine. The chemicals are then drained and clean oil is poured in.

How important is engine oil flush?

An engine oil flush may not be necessary if you regularly change your car oil. However, if you have not been chaning your car oil regularly, or are unsure if your car's previous owners did so, you should get an engine oil flush to remove any debris on the engine and prevent severe engine damage. This will maintain your car’s performance and to avoid expensive repairs later.

Jack (the Instamek mechanic) called me back when I requested after viewing the inspection report. He provided some really great information and answered the questions that I had. I'd like to thank him for his thorough and in depth inspection as this has helped me understand the condition of the minivan in question. He was also very cordial and easy to speak with. I give him 5 stars. Thank you... Instamek for all your help with my pre-purchase inspection.On another note, I noticed that a few Google reviews are negative. I would advise that it is likely that a lot of those reviews were for older cars that might not be in good condition. What you have to remember is that they are primarily an inspection service. They are trying to demonstrate the current condition of the vehicle. If they were to miss something, that might expose the buyer to unforeseen repair expenses. So, of course they are going to proceed on the side of caution by listing everything they can see and test. And, they cannot look inside the engine either. So, some items might need to further diagnosed by a physical repair shop or monitored for follow-up later. They are not able to do an exhaustive review given their fee of approximately $200, their limited time associated with that fee, and being mobile with limited equipment. I do not think it is reasonable to expect them, or any other auto inspection service, to ascertain the location of an oil leak either. A lot more time would be needed to diagnosis this. It is even difficult for a physical shop to determine the exact location of an oil leak. Sometimes, it is easy to determine while other times it is difficult if there is a lot of oil caked on an engine. Sometimes an engine will have be cleaned and then monitor where a leak occurs over a certain duration. So I think that a lot of the negative comments are not justified nor are they reasonable. I just thought that I would share my opinion and perspective for future users of the inspection service.read more

The service was very easy to set up, they showed up right on time and provided excellent service. My oil change was super easy to have done while I sat on my couch. They even sanitized my keys for me before giving them back!

I used instaMek for the purpose of a pre-purchase inspection on a used vehicle.Pros: they were so convenient. I work through the day however they were able to coordinate a time with the seller to inspect the car and provide a report to me within the same day. I was also told by the seller that the mechanic who came by was very easy to deal with and did a thorough inspection.Con: as it is a... mobile service they cannot do the most in depth inspection for instance my car had an oil leak but they were unable to fully diagnose where it was coming from.Overall they were very comvenient and also great customer service.read more
