    About 4 years ago I had the Chevy dealer recommend to me a flushing of the fuel system, car was 21 years old but only has 10,000 miles on it. I agreed as the car was having fuel related isssues, they charged me $600 for this service and while I did see a lot of gunk come out of the motor they also did a lot of damage to the car that I am still fixing to this day.

    I don't have anything flushed anymore after that ordeal....

    I change the oil regularly so don't know why I would need to have the internal parts of the engine cleaned unless this is just something new they do to newer engines for some reason. I appreciate everyone's advice however and am glad to be a member.

    I want to than all of you for the advice. My truck runs like a champ and Iím sure it will for a long time to come. Think Iíll pass on this engine/fuel system flush for now, I think the lack of money made the decision a little easier. This is a great site, glad I found it. Looking forward to navigating around and reading all the threads.
