How do I get all of the regular oil out?
I really would rather not have them mixed, at all, if possible.
Should I just undo the oil pan and let it drain for 24 hours, or something?If I want to change from conventional oil to High Mileage Synthetic, how do I clear my engine?
if it was me doing it i would add a quart of B-12 chemical to it and idle it for 5 minutes that would thin out your oil and would not hurt your bearing in the motor.then drain the old oil out. i would also use the%26lt; wix%26gt; brand of oil filter you can get the at any part place.If I want to change from conventional oil to High Mileage Synthetic, how do I clear my engine?

No you don't you'll be fine. Just make sure that when you change the oil that the engine was up to operating temperature. Don't believe what anybody else tells you. This is the year 2009 Motor oils don't have near the sludging problem that they used to. If you want to change it just change it but I don't think you'll really get a benefit to high mileage oil.If I want to change from conventional oil to High Mileage Synthetic, how do I clear my engine?
If you want to go synthetic, just look for the drain nut on your oil pan. Just take that off and let it drain out. Also replace your oil filter. Let it drain until its all out. Put the nut back on and new oil filter on and refill with synthetic. Takes all of 30 mins to do. :) Good LuckIf I want to change from conventional oil to High Mileage Synthetic, how do I clear my engine?
You don't. Or you take the engine completely apart and clean it with a toothbrush. It's not a big deal, it will be completely gone in a couple oil changes anyway if you stick to synthetic.
Just take it out, get it good and hot and then park it and let it sit overnight so as much oil as possible is drained into the oil pan. Then pull the plug and go watch a couple movies. Till no oil drips out of the drain hole.
You may be able to tilt the pan by jacking the vehicle one way or the other to get a little more oil out, but again, the small amourt of conventional oil left inside really doesn't matter.If I want to change from conventional oil to High Mileage Synthetic, how do I clear my engine?
Easiest way to get the most old oil out of the engine is to do the oil change after the car has sat for at least 24 hours. That gives the oil time to drain down out of the top end of the engine and back into the oil pan to be drained.
Of course to do that you either need to drive your car up on ramps 24 hours before you plan to change the oil or you have to have some sort of hydraulic lift (or a pit...) to get under the car without starting the motor to get under it (unless you have a truck where you can get under the vehicle without lifting it anyway.) Otherwise the 24 hour wait will be for nothing if you start the engine to move the car into position to do the change.
The good news for you is that most of the old oil will drain out of the engine even if you don't let it sit for long. There is always going to be a small amount of residual oil left in the motor between changes - it's a small amount and shouldn't hurt anything. You can safely mix synthetic and regular oil anyway - they're fully compatible with each other so you won't be doing any damage changing from conventional to synthetic oil, even if you make little effort to drain every last drop of conventional oil out before you change to synthetic.If I want to change from conventional oil to High Mileage Synthetic, how do I clear my engine?
i used to work at a oil change place and one thing we did is drain all the oil and replace filter with a new one ...let the oil from the pan drain as much as you can then pour the new oil in (keeping the drain plug off) until you see the new oil coming out ..allow that to drain as well ..replace the drain plug and add oil as normal to proper level and your done.
keeping the drain plug off wile pouring in the new oil will allow the new oil to kind of flush out the old oil (not 100% in first change) but enough to get about 90-95% of it out and only use 1 maybe 2 quarts to do the %26quot;flush%26quot;.hope it helps you good luck. =)If I want to change from conventional oil to High Mileage Synthetic, how do I clear my engine?
Generally you can just change the oil/filter and you will be fine.
But if you want flush the old engine oil, you can get a cleanser from a local auto store like %26quot;Sea Foam%26quot;.
You add it to the old oil, run it for a short time, and then change the oil AND filter. Make sure to carefully read the label. DO NOT drive the car while %26quot;Sea Foam%26quot; is still in the motor! This can potentially ruin your motor.
That should clean it out.
