Does anyone know much about the Slick 50 engine oil treatment? I know it's kind of a super lubricant type thing but does it actually work and make a difference?

Also, would anyone reccomend an engine flush treatment for an old TD with 124K on the clock?

Just noticed that this might get moved, sorry!

engine flushs is a no no, the stuff rots your seals, if you change your oil on a regular time, there is mo need for flushes m8

the Idea of Slick 50 is that it alters the weight etc of your oil... a no no in modern engines as they are very fussy about their oil!!!

Blimey! Thanks for that, I'll be steering clear from now on. Which brings me on to my next question:

Whats the best injector cleaner to use? Or should I stay away again?!

best cleaner is simple my friend put good fuel in your tank and you will not need to put anything else in, use optimax or something like

Thought Optimax was for petrol? I did try BP Ultimate Diesel once but at £1.02p a litre it was a little expensive.

It's just, sounds daft but, my exhaust is supposed to be shiny but I've give up cleaning it because it keeps getting sooted up, so whats the effects going to be within the engine? I'm going to try and get it running super efficient and up to scratch for this NW RR day, so any tips would be cool. :L
