    I just started the car up after using the seafoam, i waited about a half hour, and it smoked for like 2 seconds and then stopped. Did I do it right? I thought it was supposed to smoke more then that. :shrug:

    Mine smoked for about 5 minutes at most. Guess your engine is pretty clean... :flag:

    Might want to change your oil now though as a precautionary measure.

    Good advice... did you feed it through your intake or mix it with your oil?

    I changed my oil too per there instructions eventhough I did it through my intake. Didn't pay attention when I did the oil change.

    Haha, I saw that long as thread but I didn't feel like reading it, sounds like it just cleans out your motor and creats a smoke show. Is it harmful to your motor, I don't get it. :SNSign:

    yea it basicly cleans out all the built up carbon from the motor, you feed it into your intake manifold through a vacuum hose....

    I just ran this through my engine yesterday. Used 1/2 a can and the other 1/2 in the gas tank. I put it through the vacuum line to the intake, shut it off. Let sit for 5min (like the can says) and then started it up and took it for a drive around the block and then parked it again.

    I only have 50k on the clock, so can't say i felt much of a difference, but it feels good knowing i cleaned the engine out :nice:

    Sure is fun to use :D
