        It’s been my experience that Seafoam works well for all sorts of things. You can dump it into the engine of a car and run it before an oil change to help break up any gunk that’s accumulated inside the engine due to neglect, you can run it through a vacuum line to help clean out the intake manifold of carbon buildup. It definetly works as advertised.

        Also, you can make it yourself if you want to, for a lot less than you can buy it off the shelf. I posted the recipe over in the tool talk forum, the thread is called Homebrew automotive chemical recipes

          It works pretty good for me. I ran it through my vaccum line to clean out the engine and I put some in the fuel tank and engine oil.

                        It’s a great product, I have used it for years with great results. It’s a tad on the expensive side, but it is a great example of ‘you get what you pay for’.
                        Just prepare for lots of smoke if you put it in the throttle body. 😀

                          The vacuum line, that is on the master cylinder? Also do I need to change the oil after I add the Seafoam and can I add it to the gas tank?

                            I guess I should have read better, I can add it to the gas tank, thanks.

                              How much smoke can I expect, should I do this at my mom’s place in the country or in town?

                                Yes, the rubber line from the brake booster is a vacuum line. There are other vacuum lines that may be more accessible though, such as the PCV line. Without having your specific engine in front of me, I can’t tell you exactly where to find manifold vacuum, but the brake booster is a safe bet. If you’re going to run this stuff down a vacuum line, pour it in slowly, don’t just stick the line into the bottle.

                                As for the smoke, I’ll let youtube answer that one for me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRAV5ln5 … re=related The smoke plume appears about 50 seconds in.
