SEAFOAM

so the mechanic at work recommended I get sea foam and use that on my car to see if the ticking stops.. said it should clean the engine out and maybe loosen some crap causing the tick... so at break me and my buddy went to napa and each bought some sea foam... we went into the hanger at work and he used his... now his car is knocking so loud haha sounds like its seized up or something who knows... uggh so now I have a bottle of sea foam that im terrified to use .. anyone have experience with this **** and do you think it would actually stop a lifter or whatever from ticking

If you do it right, it should work fine
Some people put it through the wrong vacuum hose

The 99 crown is more like the 96-98 gt's 4.6, but no matter, it should be the same

I wouldn't waste my time or money on that crap.
Your buddy probably knocked some goop loose from the intake port.

You guys use that stuff and then wonder why your Cats get clogged... smh

If you want to clean your engine... the right way....

TAKE THE GODDAMN THING APART!!!

i use a bottle every 20k miles on anything i've ever owned...i'll say most products out there are snake oil, but seafoam is really decent stuff. Not hard to use unless the person does the vaccuum line and adds the stuff to fast. that'll foul out plugs in a heart beat.
