Default Sea Foam Question [Answered]

Just wanted to clarify... When you pour Sea Foam into the PCV Valve, do you need to remove the valve itself beforehand, or simply leave it in? It does not clarify on the bottle.

Thanks!

[EDIT: Actually, the master cylinder line looks to be the best vacuum line, Thanks!]

In our cars, you should never attempt to pour it into the pcv. This is because our PCV'* are down inside our lower intake manifolds and Seafoam is intended to be pulled in through a vacuum line.

Choose a small diamtere vacuum line and allow it to slowly pull the seafoam in to the engine.

Yup. Dumping into the PCV is no different than simply dumping into your oil fill.

Ok thanks. That'* why I always check here first. Seems there are many car applications that don't seem to work the way they normally should with our cars. Always needs to have a slight work-around, hehehe.

Thanks for the advice.

Okay, so to be absolutely certain I don't screw it up, you mean one of these, correct?
