It hasn't messed up my plugs. Sea Foam recommends doing it every oil change, I doubt they would give that recommendation if it destroyed plugs, but I could be wrong. I've been doing it on my ride four about 9 months now and have not had a single misfire.Turbogst wrote:It also shortens the life of your plugs and can foul them. After you do it your supposed to change your plugs.. A lot of nasty stuff gets on them. I have been using it for years was great on my eclipse everyone would think I blew my turbo haha. I only do it about once a year.

I just did it again 2 days ago and got the usual massive amounts of smoke, you f'd up somewhere dude. Where did you put the fluid?korbeano89 wrote:
i sea foamed my q and mine didnt even smoke nearly as much as yours, it barely smoked at all.
no i just did a third of the can in all the right places and let it sit for 15 mins, i think lol. and then started it up and it smoked for a lil but it was smoke that you could see through it wasnt dense like yours.Empty V wrote:

What are all the right places? You need to have your engine running and suck it up through a vacuum line. At least that's how I do it, and 1/3 goes in the crank case and another into the gas tank.korbeano89 wrote:

like i said all the right places, i guess ill let it sit in my engine longer next timeEmpty V wrote:

1. Pour 1/3 bottle in your gas tank, 1/3 in crank case where you top off your oil and 1/3 gets sucked up by the vacuum line pictured below. You should have a friend there on the throttle because when you pull that vacuum line the engine wants to die.The vacuum line has a ton of pressure and will implode"" the can if you create a seal so you want to kind of pour it into the hose.
2. After it's all sucked up, reattach the vacuum line.3. Let it run for about 30 seconds then cut the engine. 4. Let the vehicle sit for about 15min so the Sea Foam can do it's thang.5. Drive it on a freeway or somewhere you can run it at higher RPM's until the smoke stops emitting from the exhaust6. Immediately get your oil changed.
That's it! My ride runs great and I do it every 3rd oil change.

Hey Nick, that sounds exactly like throttle body cleaner. Did you notice any performance improvements?sc2nr wrote:I didn't use "Sea Foam" but I've used a similar product (name escapes me) on my 98' Saturn and a buddy's Neon. It was in spray form, took the intake off and sprayed it into the TB while holding the RPM's at 2500. same smog and waiting period.
I'm picking up my 2003 Pathfinder on monday and will be doing this, then oil/filter/sparkplug change.
Does anyone in canada know where to pick this up?
Just takes a new person to be reading sticky posts, and asking newb questions. Thanks for the info, can't wait to dig deeper once I have the truck on Monday!Empty V wrote:I suggest ordering a few bottles online.
The weirdest part about this is that this thread was resurrected and I just got a call 10min ago from a co-worker asking help because he's SeaFoaming his truck outside of my building. WEIRD!
