The easiest one to use is the pcv valve while running. Put a drinking straw in can and hold straw up to pcv valve to suck in slowly. The oil vapors that contaminate travel through the pcv valve so it's not a bad place to introduce it. Otherwise use the vacuum canister line.

Good deal. You'll notice smoother idle, acceleration, MPG, ect.. I do the Seafoam cleaning in the gas tank and one can for upper intake right before I drain the oil for oil change. For the hell of it, I replace the fuel filter every oil change too. My oil changes are 6,000 miles+ though, using Mobil1 Extended Service 5w-30.

Yeah the idles kinda rough right now but ive read that you needa put some miles on it then its smooth. That true for you? And i only put it in the upper intake and gas tank because i just changed my oil not to long ago but im going to add it next oil change forsure

Re: sea foam + vacuum line

I slowly sucked it up in there till it smoked no more. Did it slow, for about 45 minutes. A little bit at a time. I have never, ever put it in my oil. The only time I would do that for someone else, is if I were to find sludge inside. And rather than putting Seafoam in the oil, I would first try using Pennzoil Ultra and a high quality oil filter like Amsoil, Royal Purple, or K&N. I use Mobil1 ES myself, but I know that the Pennzoil Ultra cleans out engines very, very well. Especially dirty, sludgy ones.
