I have no idea on the flushing part, but it sounds like you may have coolant going into your oil and possibly the other way around as well if you are losing oil.

There are other threads on here that say how to check for coolant in the oil and vice versa. If you have issues, your lower intake manifold gasket is likely on its way out and may need to be changed immediately.

Penzoil is good oil. You need to get that intake changed, you are mixing, just in smaller amounts. Just change the oil when your supposed to.
