Liqui moly/lubro moly

Looking for this seemingly legendary flush for bmw, but no one in this backward country seems to carry it. Any clues for a American trapped in the People's Republic of Canada?


Times like this I miss Texas. Warm, and full of guns and religion

I get mine from eBay, the seller was in CA, but the flush (and the oil) were shipped from Harrisburg, PA (of all the places!!!). Check with the seller about cross-border shipment, maybe he will ship...

good luck

I like Lubro Moly. I've used all their products. Most important, in my opinion, is the anti-friction additive and gear oils from Lubro Moly. Love them all and use them in the X5 and all my cars.

For those who do not like additive and follow the manual, keep changing your oil every 15k miles and check the oil level at every petrol fill-up, like the book says.

I get mine from either NAPA, or my local indy shop, (sells to me at cost
go online to their website, and see who their local rep is, and see if he will drop off a couple cases to test out!!

15k miles and your oil will deposit in your engine, 10,000kms is good
I bought my x5 from a guy who changed his oil when the dealer told him to and when I did the valve covers there was a lot of burnt oil on the top of the heads @ 95,000km

IMO 10,000kms
or 3-5 months depending on climate


and I would use ATF as a engine cleaner, mix it with you oil when you do you next oil change and the ATF will clean the shit out of your engine, just do another oil change after 1 full tank of gas

I'd put in about a cup of ATF to start if you're going to go that route. Shitload of detergents in there so it should clean it out nicely.

I use Shell Rotella T6 5w-40 which has a decent amount of detergents since it was designed for diesels, so I'm fairly certain my engine is kept clean each time i'm driving it LOL

Sounds good to me. Still have some ATF left over from the PS flush, so will use that. Do I use it as an in-place flush, or do I drive around with it in?

Sometimes I'd grown up working on cars instead of remodeling houses. :P
