Idk. I use that little extra and just pour it straight through the motor with the plug out to help maybe wash anything out. Dunno If it works. Just habit lol

I do 5qts of 10w30 only cause i get it free. But right before i change the oil i always add a qt of Trans fluid and run it for about 10 to 15 mins so its good and hot. I figure the cleaning agents in the trans fluid help clean the motor. It actually does work.. weve used it at work to help quiet some engine noise.
