I would not recommend cleaning any engine this way. If the engine is so gunked up that this is needed, it's an act of desparation.

If you insist on this approach, use a couple of quarts of cheap oil and the rest diesel fuel. You could also simply pour some fuel through the engine while hot after draining the oil and leaving the drain plug and filter out. Follow that by a few oil changes over just a few hundred miles, draining thoroughly while the engine is at operating temperature.

Regular and frequent, thorough hot oil changes will eliminate the need for ever taking such drastic steps.

Good luck,
Change oil hot and change oil often,
