You can use the brake booster line. It won't smoke if you don't run it through the intake.

Just drive it like normal for a couple hundred miles then change. You can leave it till next oil change but I like to do it right away. Use cheap oil for the "flush".

At the very least I'd at least get it to operating temp for a short period of time.

Greetings. The treatment mentioned in the begining of this post where Seafoam is ran through the brake hose and then in the tank, would that be safe for an engine that has 120,000 miles on it that are mostly put on, while on the interstate?
