They have this almost new product out called Oil System Flush that you can run it in your oil for a couple of minutes and then drain it out and it takes all the water out of the oil for new oil. Would this be same considering that it shoots oil onto the rotor? ANd also I got that Smoke Treatment.

I wouldn't use additives on a rotary. The bearings will not like having chunks of crap going thru. On top of that, the OMP will take it and shoot it into the chamber, you can clog that too with large loose particles coming out.



You would also not use this crap on old piston engines for example, the slush is what's keep the engine together, you put crap like that in, the engien starts leaking oil and cloging it self.



The smoke treatment is just going to make a mess of the chambers, it is basically like a glue, it will not work on the rotaring oil rings. It works great on a piston engine because of the design.

FWIW, I used that engine flush on an older high mileage car and it smoked like a bitch ever since.

Hey dude, i'm dumb, what does FWIW stand for?



I have never done this but just thought about, use ATF in the oil to clean it up, sorta. I remember when i used to work at the shop and an engine with lifters would make noise( stickin) you would pour some atf in the oil and it will clean and cure the sticking of the lifter, making it smooth again. Not sure if this would be good for a rotary, and I'm not talking about atf in the combustion chanbers.
