Hey 187 can you tell me more bout this Seafoam??? I got Lucas fuel injector cleaner but after what you told me bout the oil stabilizer they have Im not sure I wanna use it! How much does this cost? What does it look like? and where can I find it?? Thanx
Lucas fuel injector cleaner won't hurt anything. Lucas is a good company, it's just their oil stabilizer to stay away from.
Seafoam is in a cylindrical white bottle with scroll writing. If you come down this way I'll pick up a couple of bottles and we can do the top engine cleanse also to clean out your intake manifold, valves, head, and cylinders a bit.
I don't remember what chains carry Seafoam. Maybe Schucks? I usually shop at a local auto parts store vs. the big chains personally.
I say a full can in the tank, half in the IM, and half in the crankcase. However, I also say no more than a couple of hundred miles on the engine after dumping it in the crankcase before changing the oil. And that's pushing it, especially if you have a dirty engine. I don't think it's good to run in the oil for very long, more as a flush.
I actually ended up using Seafoam shortly after my last post on this thread and you should've seen the smoke coming outta my car from all the carbon buildup and whatnot!! But after the smoke cleared my car ran sooo much better!! They found a new customer in me!! LOL!! I love that stuff, of course it pained me to see my car smoking cuz normally Im the one kinda making fun of peoples Hondas or Toyotas or whatever that are smoking cuz thats normally not good, so I ended up driving with my rearview mirror turned the opposite direction!! LOL!! But it did run a lot better than it had been!!
