That'* true, carbon doesn't 'hold the engine together' at all. The only thing that could hold the engine together is perhaps sludge build up over an oil leak, and the seafoam in the oil will get rid of the sludge and make the hole very obvious. However, that is highly unlikely.

And I was talking about the vacuum line idea in my previous post. The way I did it, was 1 bottle vacuum, half oil, half gas. Worked great for me. Car smoked for a few days at WOT [I had 1/4 tank and half bottle seafoam].. but all was good otherwise. When I did the vacuum line one though that was a LOT of smoke.. so do it at night, otherwise you may have some complaining neighbors.. and when you drive the car afterwards.. I suggest also doing it at night on roads where nobody travels.

For oil I just pour half of the bottle directly where normaly the oil goes in correct? (Dumb question I know, but I dont want to do anything stupid that really hurts my car and I regret asking) I think there was posted directions here on how to do it so ill reference there, though it may be buried by other posts (forum search can be very unrefined at times )

There was one huge post around here were, I believe Rogue did it, with GM Top End Cleaner [same as seafoam, but from GM]. That will answer every single one of your questions, guaranteed. Just search for GM Top End Cleaner by Rogue..
