Basically it's this liquid you run through your gas and vacuum line that clean out your system. You go and buy a can from autozone or somewhere similar for like $7. If you do it and see smoke coming out of your tail pipe don't be alarmed, it's completely normal from burning out all the junk. Also, be sure to change your oil after

I ran this on my old 3000GT and it helped smooth out the way it idled and such. Definitely recommended for older and high mileage vehicles.

I just saw a good YouTube video of a guy doing this to his mustang, he showed exactly where and how to do it. He put some in the oil? Not sure about that. I do know you add some of the can to the gas.

The treatment helps clean carbon out of the engine, which i understand is a problem in this generation Mustang V6.

I'm going to do the same on my 2000 and will also report back.

It's mostly hype and if you research videos where people actually bore scope their engine after treatments, there's very very little change to carbon deposits.
Here's where the smoke comes from....it's the oils in the Seafoam itself burning.
Here you see it used on a brand new engine yet it smokes exactly like people see and claim that's all their carbon being cleaned out.
Yeah...I'll spend that 8 bucks on lotto scratch offs instead.

So the question is what actually works for the purpose?

It worked for this guy. Not as dramatic as one would hope but some carbon did get burnt off

Personally, I've always loved Seafoam. Once, I had a misfire on one of my cylinders, and after using Seafoam in the intake, it ran totally fine. Turned out I had a gunked up injector.

So bottom line isn't it snake oil? By sounds of it doesn't sound too promising.

I just watched this video the other day, not even sure why. I think I was bored.

I have used it many years on small engines and swear by it. Follow direct as a stabelizer and also to de gunk injectors.
I will burn hot. I put too much in my 120 v AC generator and the muffler GLOWED RED. read directions please.
