Default Has anyone ever did there own engine flush?

After my oil change I looked at the didstick and it was still dirty. Thyey said I need an engine flush. I want to do this myself if I can cause they said $90 all together for the next oil change and a flush.

as long as the oil is clean you should be okay. Just try to keep the oil changed every 3,000 miles at least.
