Im probably gonna do what DANTHURS did. Only pour in gas tank and into the intake manifold. Now where the h3ll am i gonna find a shop that sells Seafoam here in Canada.....


Forgot to mention ... will it harm my plugs? because i just spend over $70 on ACDelco plugs few months ago.

I did my 93 and it had about 185 k. It worked well and I used a good bit and it seemed to jam up the cat for a while and bucked and kicked. I took it on a long run and it seemed to be fine after that. I work with CARQUEST and spend a lot of time with the rep that handles seafoam. I looked at the dvd and used it as directed. I have not put it my oil. I seafoamed all my vehicles as well. Some really seemed to be great.
I also use it in my boat to displace water and in my lawnmower gas to maintain it longer. Check out the website. I have had good experience but they say do it as directed. Many swear by it. go on youtube and you will see many people filming it too. good luck with it!

last time i did it, i fouled out all 4 plugs in my miata... and they were ngk iridiums... not cheap by any means and i was really mad... but i got them replaced thru a friend at oriellys in town... id suggest if you can afford it to get some cheap plugs for when you are running it thru just in case... you dont wanna spend another 70 if it does foul them

i was using GM top engine cleaner tho... a lil more abrasive than the seafoam and that might be why they got fouled, dunno tho

if you go for the GM top engine cleaner it is reccomended that you change your plugs after you finish the cleaning, that and an oil change right after doing so

Personally, I would not use something to abrasive with a supercharger. There'* no oil in the rotors. Seafoam has been used by a lot of members here with no problems.

Well finally found a damn store that sales this product here in Canada which ended being "CarQuest" and i picked one up for $10. Im gonna run it through my motor as soon as it warm up a bit here, since its really cold.
Any ideas if it gonna completely fry my ACDelco plugs? I bought the best ones out there for around $70 bucks and i dont really feel like spending another bill for them.lol

I think i put too much in my tank... either that or its something else but mines running a lil rough right now... i know my plugs are fine tho... thought it was them since i just put them in a day before it started acting up, day before i put in the seafoam when i filled up the tank, but the plugs are flawless so i doubt it will hurt them, just dont use all of the can in the tank lol

Your plugs should be fine, it did nothing to my autolites. It may mess up your O2 sensor and cat for a while. So the engine might run rough until it clears up. Put 1/3 can in a vac line, and the other 2/3 can in the gas tank.

I figure MY bonnie problem is the O2 sensor, should clear up in a few days, no cat to worry about
i go on lunch in an hour... will check the codes with the techII and see whats up, engine lights been on for the past day and a half since it started acting up

like i said just stick to Dans 2/3 can not the whole thing like i did... you should be fine lol
