I'm not trying to be argumentative, but I have a simple analogy here:
Jer is sick and has an "accident" in his pants. He strips off his clothes and jumps in to a soothing bath. He washes off his "accident" in the tub. Jer then drains only 2/3rds of the bath water and then refills the tub with hot water. Tim, immediatetly, strips off his clothes and jumps in Jer's tub and actually enjoys it?
If you noticed it doesn't matter how much water was originally in the tub, it is still contaminated with Jer's "accident".
As far as air goes, there is a little air in the oiling system at all times. Case in point, each manufacturer says not to overfill the oiling system so the crank doesn't aereate the oil. When filled properly, there is a space between the crank and the oil level what is in that space? Air. This machine injects a motor oil additive so there isnt a dry start up.
Besides, the man who invented this oil flush machine holds a double doctorate in Chemical Engineering AND Automotive Engineering. He also invented Techron/Techrolene and was in the group whom perfected synthetic motor oil. He is a god in our industry.
I'm sorry that I'm acting like a "know-it-all", I am a Technical Advisor for a automotive lubricant and chemical manufacturer...it's what I do.
Hopefully you guys aren't mad at me.
