Seafoam

Just read teh DIY seafoam thing.

Question, Do you have to disconnect the brake booster line? Or can I just put in in teh IM vacuum hose, crank case, and gas tank?

Thanks.

You can do it from the brake booster line or into the IM. I just attched a hose and funnel directly to the IM because it was easier then disconneting the hose from the booster.

yeah he asked me if i had an oil change and I did do one after using seafoam so that wasnt the problem. It was atleast over a month after i used seafoam that my engine failed, prolly cause it was automatic .

Did Seafoam tonight in gas + brake booster line. Worked great, not much smoke but it seems like it idles smoother. I am going to put the last third in my oil tomorow drive for a hundred KM or so then do an oil change with some lucas oil and a fram filter. First oilchange on the new car .

Nevermind the Lucas crap. It'll get the oil too thick in the colder months ahead. Just straight oil is all you need.

What does it being an auto have to do with anything?
