Default seafoam question

im going to try out "seafoam" and was wondering where to pour it in. everything i have read says to pour into a vacuum line. does anyone know if the brake booster feeds to all cylinders? and would it be a problem just to pour directly into the throttle body. anyone who has done this or has any advice please give me some input, it would be much appreciated

I have used Seafoam a couple of times in 2 vehicles. Where you pour it depends on what you're trying to do with it. I've put it in the gas tank (to attempt to clean fuel system) and in with the engine oil (for clicking lifter). I believe the label on the can will advise you too.

i was planning on pouring half into the tank and the other half into the top end. pouring it into the oil case makes me nervous, im running synthetic anyway so im not to worried about the crank case. i was wondering why nobody pours directly into the throttle body, it would definately get to all cylinders and clean all the intake manifold.

put it through the vacuum hose that attaches to the brake booster

i personally would NOT pour it in my crankcase directly, but, it is up to you

the idea of pouring it into the crankcase is to clean sludge and carbon.comon sense would say that u are diluting ur oil possibly losing viscosity but seafoam says it is safe is oil based with mild detergents, i definitely would not leave it in the crankcase and change oil and filter imediately afterward top be safe.
