1. Warm the car up
2. Put 1/3 in PCV, 1/3 in gas tank, 1/3 in oil, while leaving the car on?
3. Turn the car off in a minute
4. Let it sit for 10 minutes
5. Drive till no more smokes coming out of exhaust
6. Do an oil change within 50 miles.
arent you supposed to take the 1/3 that goes in the pcv system and rev while putting it in? otherwise the car will lock up and dye (nothing bad you just have to re-start it) The way i did it was to pull the brake booster vacuum line out and have a cup of seafoam and just let it suck it up while someone is giving it gas for a while till its all in there then let idle for about 5-10 minutes then drive it out. And the oil thing Def change your oil before about 50 miles just as precautionary measures.
Here is the million dollar question though. (I used to use it on my RS all the time)
Can you use this on Turbo engines or will this be really bad on the bearings in the turbo?
I know this is a old post, but I just seafoamed my car, along with a full engine restore oil additive and my car feels great now. I used the oil additive to clean up my engine somewhat before I converted to Synthetic. I bought some synthetic 5w-30 and now my car runs so much smoother.
Yeahh, I put a third in my pcv valve by sucking it up in a cup then I switched to synthetic and ran premium and my car felt GREAT.
I know I had a lot of gunk and buildup and i think it really helps those that have a lot of carbon deposits in their engine. This stuff is great if used right, but some people seem to have bad experiences unfortunately. For the gas thing, I'd rather just put in Chevron fuel system cleaner and call it a day, stuff is great.
i have used this in my 200K CRX with good results. expect a huge smokeshow though. replace your plugs costco sells big bottles of the chevren fuel injector cleaner stuff. how to use seafoam, from their website.
I would put it in your 1/3rd in gas tank first, then 1/3 in oil let that run for like 5 minutes and then the last third i poured slowly down the pcv valve. You're definitely going to need someone to keep your idle's up or the car will stall. Afterwards, my car felt a whole lot smoother. You have to change the oil right after because seafoam thins your oil.
Sidenote: no matter how cool the giant cloud of smoke looks behind your car...DO NOT WALK THROUGH THAT SHIT....i made a mistake and it was like breathing in straight carbon monoxide...
other than that it did wonders for my car... i had a weird idle problem that sorta went away
