Search bar there are probably a million threads on this already. But it's some awesome stuff, add it to your fuel and/or crankcase and/or vacuum line feeding all cylinders..when added to fuel it cleans injectors, added to vacuum line it cleans carbon build up mainly, smooths out your idle VERY well, I had a bit of a rough idle and after first time seafoam use its so smooth, I personally won't put anything in my crankcase but oil, plenty of people swear by it but I choose to stay away..here's a picture of the can for reference if you see it at a local parts store..

No problem bro, do your research, I was skeptical for months about it and when I finally did do it I made sure I did it safely and correctly.

Ok so you didn't put any in the oil? Did you put any in the gas? I really wouldn't put any in the oil also but idk if there is a diff if u do or not.

In the oil no, like I said, I don't trust putting anything either than oil in my crankcase, but many many people swear by it, I just choose to stay away from it, that decision is up to you but again like I said do your research. I've hear that if you do put it in your oil MAKE sure you change your oil within 100 miles. I do put it in my fuel quite often, when i fill my tank (which is not often cuz I'm a broke 21 yr old) I will drop a can in there, I will only use it tho maybe every 3-6 months

IMO put 1/3 into the vacuum line, and the rest into the tank with it a bit low and than fill her up...make sure when you put the seafoam in the vacuum line you do it very slow, with someone in the driver seat keeping her from stalling, I mean it took me 10 minutes to put 1/3 the can in there

Putting it in the oil helps, people say you can leave it in after you do an oil change, but the best thing to do IMO is put it in about 50-100 miles before you do an oil change and you will be good, that way it doesn't sit in there.

Yes I noticed a drastic difference in my idle, that's about it, don't feel more power or anything but does seem a tad more smooth.
