I've heard that getting an engine flush is dangerous because it can dislodge debris and damage the engine. Is that true? What's your take?
Engine flushes are not for cleaning dirty engines. They're to keep clean engines, cleaner for the life of the vehicle. If you have an engine that is dirty inside; never, ever attempt to flush it. It can be disastrous.

Chevy Vortec lifter & valve tap how to repair it
this video has info on how to fix a severe valve tap or sticky lifter using 1 quart of automatic transmission fluid with 4 quarts of oil. the trans fluid is a high detergent that loosens up sludge build up in a motor from lack of oil changes, you will be amazed at what pouring 1 quart of trans fluid in a neglected motor can do. the truck in this video got a double treatment and now runs smooth with no taps and the check engine light went out as soon as I started it. also after the second treatment I changed the oil & filter and the clumps of sludge that were left in it broke down into the oil from the trans fluid and it flushed it out. I
I realize I bash fram oil filters in this video and any filter wouldnt have helped in this case because the truck was so neglected any filter would have pluged up. howerver,,, Fram in my opinion is cheap crap.and over the years of having hundreads of cars I can honestly say if you have 2 identical engines 1 using Fram the other using Wix or Napa the Fram motor will die prematurely due to lack of filtering.

Compression Testing and What You Can Learn From It - EricTheCarGuy
Compression Testing and What You Can Learn From It - EricTheCarGuy
Here is a video on performing a compression test on an engine to assess it's mechanical condition. An engines ability to compress air and fuel is directly proportional to it's performance since an engine is nothing more than an air compressor once you take away all the controls. A compression test is a good general test that will give you an idea of the engine's overall health but it does not give specific information on what the problem is should there be one, for that a "leak down test" would be required, here is a link to that video.
However if you find yourself looking for the source of a performance problem with an engine, this is a great place to start. This test is often overlooked in favor of looking at the fuel or ignition system, I think that's a mistake, if an engine can't perform mechanically no amount of electronics will make that better.
