I usually just put it through my gas tank and vacuum line. It works wonders and you get a little show to. Just let it get sucked up about halfway through the bottle with a vacuum line going into the intake or wherever, and there ya go. Dont let it die on ya though. Keeping revving the engine while you do it an when you are about halfway, then let it flood it or die out. Maybe let it sit for a few minutes, start it up, then rev it alot to get all your smoke and stuff cleaned out. Watch the tail pipes to because youll see black stuff come out if its your first time!

Oil?? Ive never heard of that but i imagine NO! Oils for oil! It doesnt get circulated out NEARLY as much as gas, if at all, so it would just constantly stay in there. It aint no lubricant! Haha

You can use it in your oil just follow the can directions. I've done both oil and gas. I need to clean out through the vacuum lines. Haven't dine that yet. Love sea foam.

Go ahead and check their website. You can use it with your oil and through your vacuum lines. It won't hurt anything, and they guarantee that it won't hurt any engine components. Just make sure to read the directions.

I used it in my oil once and it wasn't that dirty and drove about 200 miles with it in there to clean. So my engine is pretty clean.

Re: Seafoam

I almost exclusively use this stuff to clean the upper cylinders. Pour the rest in my gas from time to time, but never put it in the oil. I always use high quality oil so I figure it doesn't need the help as bad as my injectors and valves.

If you feel the injectors need it, otherwise just vacuum.

Mind you our cars sometimes idle funny after seafoam. A reset usually clears it up.

I might as well do it all my car only has 66k on it so I shouldn't be too bad but who knows. But is half and half alright to do?

I use about 1/3 a can through the motor. Mine hardly smoked at all at 75k. Just pour the rest in at least 1/2 a tank of gas if you wanna just use it up, or do a friends car.

It's safe in oil but make sure you change the oil after about 2-300 miles....

I guess you could put it there but i think itd be better where the line is on the left side of my picture. With the sensor part in the middle of the line. It leads to the same part but wont stall out as easy. It just disconnects from the sensor

The skinny line that goes from the sensor to the tb. Its on the far left of the pic. If you have it there that works better. I would just suggest a smaller vacuum line
