Sea Foam-About Us

SEA FOAM MOTOR TREATMENT for Gas Engine Applications

100% Pure Petroleum
Use in All Engines in All Seasons
2 Cycle, 4 Cycle, and Diesels
Treats 3 Critical Areas: Gas Tank, Fuel Systems, and Crankcase

Cleans fuel injectors
Cleans carburetor jets
Cleans carbon
Stabilizes fuels
Upper cylinder lube
Removes moisture in fuel
Frees sticky lifters
Frees sticky rings
Removes moisture in oil
Cleans P.C.V. systems
Cleans catalytic converter odors
Oxygen sensor safe

How Many Mechanics Use SEA FOAM
In Tune-Up of 4 Cycle Gasoline Carbureted or Fuel Injected Engines
Autos, Trucks, and Tractors
With engine warm, slowly pour 1/3 to 1/2 pint through carburetor or throttle body throat. (If vehicle is port injected slowly pour SEA FOAM through direct manifold vacuum line that will feed all cylinders, possible sources are P.C.V. valve or brake booster line.) This will pull SEA FOAM down on top of the pistons and to the back of the intake valves to dissolve carbon. Turn ignition off. Restart engine after 5 minutes. If severe carbon build up is apparent, use more Sea Foam as previously directed. Make sure exhaust is well ventilated when using Sea Foam in these various ways as fumes will be extreme for a short time.
Pour 1/3 to 1/2 pint into oil crank case to clean rings, lifters, dirty parts and remove moisture.
Pour 1/3 to 1 full pint into fuel tank to clean injectors, carburetor jets, fuel lines and remove moisture.
Immediate Results: Smoother idle, increased R.P.M.'s better throttle response and improved performance. See label on can for detailed results for use in each area.

i have the forum of where they talk about the product but im not sure if i should use this or not just wanted to see if anyone else knows about this product or used it
oh yeah there are some thing that need to be changed when doing this like spark plugs and get an oil changed after a couple of miles of running the product.

sounds an aufull lot like the product marvels mystery oil. never hear of seafoam though. there mostly for older engins. i used marvels to free up a frozen piston due to carbon buildup in my old 71 chevy v8. it worked after about a week with one hell of a backfire. basically there used as a last resort to fix problems on older engins before letting a mechanic take the engine apart and spending more money than it might be worth. if spending $5 on a quart of marvels saves you a pricy engine job its worth it if not your only out $5. you should talk to a mechanic before trying these products first to make sure they wont hurt anything.

I used Seafoam in my old 1997 mazda millenia with 115k on it.
It made white smoke come out for a few minutes and lit up the CEL for a little while but seemed to help with performance.

You just have to be careful if it has never had Seafoam in it before because sometimes it can get rid of the "gunk" that is sealing your engine and cause leaks.
