Default Just used seafoam for the first time

Well I decided to see what all the hype was about this product. I can tell everyone has had a good experience with this so I figured my engine could use a little cleaning.

I did this along with my CAI today and WOW what a difference.

I just put half the can through the line under the booster and then the rest in the tank. Let it sit for an hour, started it up let it idle, and drove it hard. The smoke didnt last too long and it wasnt as crazy as i had seen in videos on youtube but there was a good amount. But I will tell you what my throttle responce was so much better and acceleration was incredable. best it has been since having the truck for 4 months. I was actually going to reset the pcm today but I couldnt get the negative battery cable off the damm battery. But after driving it didnt seem like i needed it. I was shifting a lot better on the highway and I didnt have to put my foot down all the way and wait for the engine to finally get going..


I didnt put in the in crank because I just changed the oil last month with RP. I was actually wondering if it would be ok to use again at say the end of august when I change the oil again to use seafoam again? Let me know what you guys think of that idea. I will probly have used 6-7000 miles of RP. I know it lasts a long time but the oil that was in it before was really dirty from when I bought the truck so I wanted to run that less then what I could then change it and be even more sure I got less crap in there

But anyway, great product. Next time I use it I will try to make a video of it do 3rd gen guys who have trouble will be able to figure it out quicker

It has better throttle response BC of cleaner pistons/intake valves. Good stuff.

You just bought one can of it? I've thought about doing this but with my new exhaust setup I think I might wait a little while

Yes just 1 can. I used almost half in the brake booster line and the rest in the tank. Twards the end of the summer I will put some in the crank when I know I am going to so an oil change. What new set up do you have? I dont see how it could affect it in anyway

Did you do a spark plug change after the seafoam? I read that it fouls out your plugs.

Sorry, you read some bad info, no need to change the plugs; in fact, they should be cleaner!

Nice report on the sea foam. I used it on my first car - a 2000 Camry - when it had 180k miles or so. TONS of smoke out of that little 4 cyl motor. Actually, the reason I did it was because my CEL came on for the EGR valve on that car. Sea foam cleaned it out and CEL went off after another 3-5 cycles. It stayed off for about a year until the EGR valve completely went. But after my experience with it, I'm a believer in the stuff
