Re: Sea foam?

Seafoam is great. Did you get it done? I usually put one can in gas tank, one can for induction cleaning. The oil contaminants arrive via the pcv valve, so I like to introduce it slowly through the same path, through pcv valve. The difference in acceleration after cleaning up the throttle body, runners, valves is great. I have an oil separator now & I can see what is getting sucked up into the combustion chamber.

Mike, please do not reply in this manner.
If you do not agree with the use of a product, please provide a constructive reply with some proof of your opinion.
Replies like this do nothing, but incite arguments on the forums. Thanks, TH


That being said I have used Seafoam in my older equipment with decent results and I think the key is to use it as the manufacturer recommends, but I would hesitate at using in my Mustangs. Before I ever did use it in my Mustang I would thoroughly research it first.

Re: Sea foam?

I use it 2-3 times a year sucked up a vacuum line or the pcv line. If we lived close enough, I would offer to purchase the two cans and perform the procedure for you. It is harmless and is a great, great thing to have done. I would buy it, install it, and warranty any problems you feel it caused. Any day.
SEAFOAM is great stuff helping out Mustang V6's that build up "oil shmeg" & dirt deep inside.

Yeah I warm up the car, let it idle while I let the motor sip it thu the brake booster hose. Also another thing you can try is Combustion Chamber Cleaner. It's a Mopar product and you can pick some up at a Dodge dealership service office. It's in a spray can with a nozzle straw. It would just undo my intake a little bit, slide it over just enough to fit the straw into and spray it in. I think it works better than seafoam but its more expensive.

You can clean the combustion chamber with a spray of water too, just don't overdo it and hydro lock the engine.The water turns into super heated steam and helps clean off combustion deposits and it's a lot cheaper than other options.

I've used this product once... Did whatever the directions said... However, I did not get that awesome white smoke like I've seen in vids on YouTube...

First time I did it I smoked a lot and then when it ran and died down I took it for a ride and it started blowing smoke again and everyone was looking at me like I had a blown headgasket

I like this option.
Theres a nice method of using the windshield washer squirter hose to inject water/methanol while driving under 'load'.
A small restriction can be placed in a vacuum line to reduce the amount being sprayed into the throttle body area.
Take wipers off, go for a drive and use the spray function when under 1/2 to full throttle.
Blasts carbon off combustion chamber on contact.

That's a great idea.
