Default Seafoam!

Once again we thank the makers of seafoam for their outstanding product. Just seafoamed the 93 SMOKE SHOW! Didn't last too long, but wow, there was alot of it. Took 6 tries to start it.... It actually made my idle CONSIDERABLY better. I think I might do it again in the next few days just for good measure. Might get some more out.

What exactly does seafoam do to your car? Is it good to use? How/or what do you do with it? Like you pour it in you gas tank??

Well... you can use it in your crank case to clean out varnish and such from oil passages, lifters, etc.. excellent to improve oil circulation and pressure.

or right into the intake through a vacuum line, then shut it off and allow it to steam in the cylinders, it breaks down all the carbon. built up carbon in your cylinders is no good, it can cause many problems. but removing it does all kinds of good, smooths out your idle, improves responsiveness, etc.

THEN, you can toss up to two cans in a full tank to clean your injectors and valves. Normally I do one can (one pint) on a half tank to really get some concentrated cleaning through the injectors.

seafoam is amazing stuff.

Search this forum for Seafoam. You'll get many hits on articles by members who have used it. Some fun videos of the exhaust show also.
