Oil additive to clean out deposits?

Is there anything like that I could add to my oil to help break down sludge and deposits prior to an oil change. Mine is coming up and I remember hearing something that you add to your oil a few hundred miles before you change it and when you flush it out it takes with it some of the crap built up over the years. Anyone heard of this and is it worth it?

Question is a little broad. Best BMW mechanic I know recommends using best oil you can afford & follow factory recommendations for service. If you know that the car has been neglected, there are some products that claim to help. bobistheoilguy.com has lots of discussion to help you decide if you need something besides clean oil. Good Luck!

"Engine Flush"... It thins the oil before a service, I wouldn't do a few hundred miles with it in though... Maybe just 20-30, that'll be plenty of time for it to circulate at temp !!

Eso es todo!

There is and I don't mean 'flush prodict'. You need specific oil type and patience. I'll PM you.
