Impressed with the first purchase ordered 2nd one for my another oil change within a month..upgrading to correct liqui moly toptec 4100 5w40 based on vw 505.01 standard for my rapid from previous self-explored liqui molygen 5w40 which is based on incorrect vw505.00 standard.
A PREVIEW TO PURCHASE:
Ever since i used Liqui Molys Super diesel additive in my skoda rapid 1.6 diesel 2014 model, i was highly impressed with the performance of it, where it really made an acute difference to my existing engine noise.
Thus eager to check the performance of more products in its arsenal ,i ordered its gear box oil additive,its 5W40 Molygen Engine Oil & Engine oil Flush.
ABOUT OUR PRODUCT :
My observations of the product from packing to performance so far have been:
@ The can arrived packed in a simple known amazon carton pack which I felt wasn’t exactly secure to save the can from dents while shipping & handling, Could have damaged & spilled the contents.
@ The liquid inside is a golden colored liquid to be poured into the engine oil compartment in engine off condition.Procedure for the same listed below.
@ The use of engine flush is a must when changing the brand of oil as mixing of oils is not good for engine health.
@ Against a printed MRP of 425, purchased it for 316 bucks which is quite reasonable given its quantity.
@ The picture of the product shows the product name , Engine Flush Plus but the received product has only Engine Flush label printed over it which for me, is not so important as far as it’s a genuine liquid moly product & does its intended job.
Since its filled in india after being produced & developed in Germany ,can labeling may differ.
@ The product causes severe eye irritation & can be fatal if swallowed or it enters airways ,hence extreme caution in handling is advised & surely keep it away from kids.
@ The quantity packed is mere 200 ml but sufficient for engines up to 4 liters of engine oil.
Suggested use procedure:
1.) Add the contents of the can to the warm engine with old oil.I added it when i could see smoke coming from the engine oil as it was quite hot even though standing at workshop after a drive run of 120 kms.I was skeptic if it won't cause any explosions but it did not.Still if you could spare some time for oil to cool down a bit go for it.
I poured the full 200 ml into the 4.3 liter engine old oil to clear.
2.) Start the ignition & allow it to idle run & get into circulation for 10 minutes.This allows the solution to mix up in the oil , remove & dissolve all the wear/tear or soot deposits over engine into the solution.
3.) Finally Switch-off the engine & drain the old oil.I did not try it but may be i should have poured in a little amount of new oil & drained it too to ensure perfect residual oil removal.
4.) The older golden castrol engine oil poured into my engine came out jet black in color as shown in the picture.Though it was a bit sticky still having all soot deposits dissolved in it.
@ The purpose of the product is to flush out the harmful residues & deposits from the engine to prepare it nice and clean for the new engine oil & it exactly does as intended.
Final Verdict :
Judging the performance of such products in an assertive manner is always difficult as no one can peep inside the engines to inspect but as far as a comparative performance is considered draining engine oil with this flush looks to surely remove much more impurity than simply draining oil & thus I am sure it flushed & prepared my engine for the new addition of oil.
It is also mentioned that this product is smooth over the piston seals of the engine as well.
Hence given the reputation of liquid moly products & for a mere price of 316 bucks, I suppose it’s worth trying & always recommended if going for a brand change even if upgrading to another version of the same brand.
