Hi all, I'm doing a service on my l67 and I may have run into an issue. I was recommended the engine detox by a worker at auto pro and just went along with it, ended up picking up a tin. I was planning to do it tonight but plans have changed. I've already dumped the detox in the engine and I was wondering if it would cause any issues with it sitting in the engine overnight?

What does the can say? I doubt it would be strong enough to do much damage sitting overnight in a cold engine but i dont know whats in it ...

Yep. You can leave it over night. Do not drive it, that's a recipe for disaster.

It won't do much of anything because it will be sitting in the sump.

Should be ok.
I personally dont use Detox, or oil flushes as dont want the seals the ruin.
Thats the only thing i can see happening, but these days it should be ok.

Will only cause issues if you drive on it.

Cool, thanks guys. I was just a little concerned cause I've never used the detox before.
