    I wouldnt trust it. Dont really need it most of the time. MAYBE some seafoam if you have alot of hard miles.

    NO! No need to flush a working, maintained engine. One you pulled from a junkyard, sat for years? Maybe.

    Nope, would not use that on a modern vehicle. Have used similar products back in the day on 70s model autos with high miles and a lot of buildup and crud. You should not need to use a product like that on your 2017. Just change the oil every 5k and the engine will stay plenty clean.
