Seafoam engine treatment.

You will be amazed what this product can do. It typically is used as a fuel system additive, but has many other uses. When used as a fuel system additive you should expect almost immediate results. The primary ingredient burns very rapidly and at an extremely high temperature producing a burn-off cleaning effect within the engine and exhaust system. This may cause your engine to run much smoother and quieter. It can also be used as a engine flush to aid in the removal of built up gunk and sludge.

The product is also available in one gallon cans.

Warning: Burns extremely hot!
Use caution when the application is air-cooled.

Sea Foam

Use Shell/BP in my car so I haven't noticed any difference in 5000 mi. maybe if I used lower quality gas it would make a difference.

Comments about Sea Foam Motor Treatment for Gas and Diesel Engines (16 fl. oz.):

Applied to lawnmower (6HP), small 2-stroke trimmer, and 2001 Ford Ranger but saw no improvement The reason I bought it was due to having starting issues with trimmer. After reading the reviews I was so optimistic that I thought it would add to all 3 engines. It just does NOT work! Frustrated with the trimmer not starting, I searched/found online many use the Lucas Fuel treatment.
Oh my, oh my!... I wish I new of it long ago. Trimmer started on 1st pull & now all 3 engines work great!

Comments about Sea Foam Motor Treatment for Gas and Diesel Engines (16 fl. oz.):

I was headed out of town when the MIL light in my 2002 VW Jetta 1.8L Turbo illuminated. It was idling REALLY rough and then the MIL light started blinking (never a good sign) so I stopped at Advance Auto Parts to get a diagnostic. The car threw codes P0300, P0202, P0302, and P420. I hadn't used Sea Foam in a few months so I decided to buy some and add it to my half tank of gas. Couldn't hurt, right? Drove around for a few miles...the rough idling totally stopped. I cleared all the codes (MIL light turned off) and drove around for another few miles to see if it would come back on. Tried to use the diagnostic a few more times but nothing triggered it. Drove the 12 or so miles back to my house and everything seems to be just fine.
This stuff is great!! Seriously, try this first if your car throwing ignition coil codes, catalytic converter codes, or other related codes.

      Comments about Sea Foam Motor Treatment for Gas and Diesel Engines (16 fl. oz.):

      My 5 year old snowblower was starting to surge and sound as if it was running out of gas even with a full tank. I figured it was the carb and anticipated the pain of loading it into my truck ( no trailer) and then the cost and wait knowing a snow storm is on its way bringing 12-14 inches. I bought this stuff and poured an oz into my snowblower gas tanks. I ran it for three minutes then did a big strip to widen my driveway and by the time I was done ( 10 minutes total) my snowblower was running smooth as ever! Best money I have ever spent. I'll use this in all my small engines around the property now.

      I used a can of Sea Foam in my 2001 Subaru Outback and immediately my gas mileage decreased by 4 miles to the gallon. The car does not run any better but it sure killed my gas mileage. I was getting 24 mpg around town and now I get 20 mpg. Don't want anymore of your Sea Foam.

            Gave my 98 GMC Sierra 4x4 the Sea Foam treatment. It cleaned carbon deposits and improved injector and engine performance. Ran about 6 oz. through the intake manifold and saw an improvement in engine performance. You could actually see the carbon being blown out of the exhaust pipes. Gas mileage and overall engine power improved. I'm going to do the treatment on my 06 Trailblazer.

              I recently purchased a used 2008 Honda Shadow Aero 750 with 5,500 original miles. The bike did not get rode frequently enough and sat for approx 10 months. It did not run very well so I drained the old gas and filled it back up with fresh high octane gas (3 gallons) and 8 0zs of SeaFoam. This stuff really helped. After letting the bike idle for about 45 mins and riding for around 80 miles the carburetor functioned much better. The hesitation and back firing stopped. I ran SeaFoam through the fuel system for two more gas tanks full and the bike got even better. GREAT STUFF! I'll be using it in my other two bikes also.

                    I'm having issues with my car losing a little bit of power going uphill. It's barely noticeable, but I notice it. No one else seems to. It's a 2006 Chevy Impala with 205,000 miles. It looks brand new inside and out so I continue to drive it until the wheels fall off. I assume this Sea Foam goes directly into the gas tank?

                      Hi Zman, I'm glad to assist you. Replacing the Intake Idle control valve would be a better solution. Without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it, nor provide you with a 100% answer. I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

                      A:

                      Great question Thomas, I will be happy to help. I can tell you it certainly won't hurt your engine and a great place to start. You may have other issues going on but Sea Foam will definitely clean out the fuel system. To clean the carburetor bowl and jets the manufacturer recommends that you add 2 oz. of Sea Foam Motor Treatment to each gallon of gas oil mix. Sea Foam Motor Treatment will slowly re-liquefy old fuel and petroleum varnish residue deposits, clearing passages and restoring normal functionality. If you wish to spray atomized Sea Foam Motor Treatment directly into the carburetor throat with the engine warm and running, use Sea Foam Spray Top Engine Cleaner and Lube (Sea Foam Motor Treatment in an aerosol can). - See more at: http://seafoamsales.com/cleaning-two-stroke-engines/#sthash.B6elswzw.dpuf

                      I'm happy to help, Peter! Sea Foam Motor Treatment for Gas and Diesel Engines (Part No. SF16) will not be able to clean the throttle body on your vehicle by pouring it into your fuel tank. Fuel does not enter the air stream until after the butterfly in the throttle body.

                      If you are trying to clean the butterfly and throttle body, you will likely need to remove your air inlet tubing/housing and clean the throttle body with a throttle body cleaner, such as Valvoline Carb and Throttle Body Cleaner (Part No. 602333) or CRC Throttle Body and Air Intake Cleaner (Part No. 05078). Some vehicle manufacturers may recommend using only brake parts cleaner, such as Wearever Brake Parts Cleaner (Part No. W7340) or Wearever Low-VOC Brake Parts Cleaner (Part No. W7341)
