Re: Seafoam

Use it! Each treatment is one can in gas tank, one can for vacuum hose suction, cleaning of upper intake manifold and combustion deposits. Guaranteed satisfaction.

Re: Seafoam

The easiest way is to pull the pcv valve. Put a straw in the can.

It is the SECOND best engine/fuel system cleaner available on the open market. The only thing better is BG 44K at about twice the cost.

Follow the directions posted by others and enjoy the cleanest engine you have ever owned.

Re: Seafoam

Yeah, BG now sells a product made to be pulled through a vacuum line for upper intake cleaning too. 44K is especially great in gas tank that's for sure.

Putting it thru this line allows it to more evenly flow between both sides of the intake, where as the brake booster is situated more towards the drivers side of it. Really just personal preference

Just don't let the vacuum line suck it all in at one time. Let the engine sip about half a can and turn it off for 15 or 20 minutes.

When you crank it back up go drive some deserted roads and do a few wot passes. The car will belt white smoke worse than a hooker in a cheap motel but will clear up after a few minutes.

Benefits are better starts and a smoother running engine. I would recommend changing plugs shortly thereafter.

I've always used brake booster. You disconnect from the booster side and keep a finger over the hose to keep the car idling
