How many miles are on your motor? I have a can of seafoam somewhere i bought a while back but ive heard a few horror stories about seafoam screwing with tired gaskets and such. Im at 204k miles and id be pretty nervous using seafoam.

Re: Haha, seafoamed the lude

What exactly does seafoam do for your car? Does it clean out the carbon or something?

Re: Haha, seafoamed the lude

Also, I have 140k miles on my lude, someone told me that it would mess up old bearings if I used it. I just changed my spark plugs too, would it get wet?

Anyone with experience?

160k on the clock and that stuff worked wonders! More power, better idle, smooth! Remember to suck up about 2/3 rds of a can through you brake booster vacuum line, thats what cleans the carbon from the pistons and head

Seafoam will not hurt gaskets or seals, if anything it will condition them. If you pour the rest into your oil, go 500mi and change your oil. Don't go much over that or you can damage your engine bearings

I wouldn't go more than 5mi with seafoam in my oil.

X2. 500 miles with seafoam in your oil is just bad news.

Re: Haha, seafoamed the lude

Seafoam is like a cleansing oil. Put some in your hand or on your fingers and rub them together. It will not hurt your engine to run it in the crank case for 500mi.

That doesn't deter from the fact that it breaks up sediments inside the crankcase. I dunno about you but I don't want lose sediment sh!t in my oil and then running through my engine.

Re: Haha, seafoamed the lude

Seafoam's website says:

"This process can be done as part of a pre service cleaning by adding the Sea FoamŪ to the oil at least 30 miles before the next oil change interval. OR it can be done as a preventative maintenance process without changing the oil. You can leave Sea FoamŪ in the oil indefinitely as long as the oil is clean. The addition of a high-detergent oil like Sea FoamŪ may cause the oil to become dirty faster than normal as buildup oil residue and contamination are cleaned. Check the oil at regular intervals and when it gets dirty, change it."

I think they would know best how their own product works. The last time I used it, I put it in my oil ~100 miles before my next oil change. As long as the oil's clean, Seafoam needs some time to do it's job.
