Instructions will be on the can itself for different applications. I put it in an old Dodge Caravan I owned (years ago now) and I think it did a good job. I smoked out most of my block when I did it.

you can pull the vacuum like off the master cylinder. you will need someone in the car to keep the throttle up a tad more than idle so it stays running.

I would say it wouldn't hurt anything if you did. Maybe wait till you're about due for an oil change and do it all in one day..? Just a thought.

If you put it in the oil, you have to drain it after running the car. If you are gonna put it in the combustion chamber, put it in through the brake booster line sloooooooowly with the car running, too much will stall it and flood it. Pour very, very slowly.
