what seafoam is the best to use gas treatment or the one that goes straight into the intake? trying to keep my egr valve and ports clean as possible.

Re: seafoam

i've already read that and it doesn't answer my question. i know how to use seafoam. i want to know which is the best one to use considering that they have two different ones. gas treatment or the straight air intake one.

Re: seafoam

IF you dont want to plug anything, then I PERSONALLY wouldn't recommend using seafoam. It will just knock loose the gunk and it will get stuck somewhere else. I just did this and had to replace my egr port plugs.Take that for what you will, but I believe that running seafoam strictly through your gas tank is going to cause this. Me personally if I were to do it again I would do the gas, then the intake then the crankcase all in the same period of time. That way anything that gets knocked loose one way will get knocked loose again and hopefully burnt off with the next form of treatment. But that's just my own opinion...

Anyways, the regular engine treatment is made for the gas tank too...I wasn't even aware that they made more than one seafoam. Just use the original. Its not a beat-your-head-in kind of decision here man, you're overthinking it...

Re: seafoam

There's 2 kinds of seafoam. Good ol engine cleaner Seafom in that classic can is the first. The second is Seafoam Deep Creep, its just a carb cleaner. Spray into your air intake. Just in a nice aresol can with a nozzle to squirt into your throttle body. Use regular old seafom (the can that you need a funnel to put in your gas tank). Recommended for a prelude would probably be 1/3 can in the Gas tank, 2/3 can in the crank case. (go by what they recommend per qt of oil, i cant remember off the top of my head last time i did it was on a 5.4L v8 camaro :P)

Do all treatments at once, change your oil 2-300 miles afterwards.

For the gas tank put 1/3 can into a FUUULLLL tnak of gas, and drive that tank down to almost (or completely) empty. Time it right and when your tank is empty just do the oil change ;P


Some people say put some into vacuum line, completely up to you. I personally do it once and never again on an engine when i get a car and do an initial all around cleaning.

Re: seafoam

okay leme clarify here. there is 6 types of seafoam ok, 1.seafoam motor treatment, it Safely frees sticky lifters and piston rings, removes carbon build-up and oil residue, reduces pinging and rough idle. For Carbureted or Fuel Injected Gasoline Engines - Autos – Trucks – Tractors – Motorcycles – Marine – Small Engines – Industrial Engines Great for Diesel Engines Too! 2. seafoam can spray for carbs intakes etc any easy internal parts to clean great for egr valves etc.. 3.seafoam deep creep wich is a penetrant like pb blaster but is 100 percent petrolumn. 4. seafoam trans tune wich cleans varnish deposits in the transmission (automatic) and all power steering systems. 5.bug b gone safly removes bugs and debree from driving off lights bumpers grills winsheilds etc.. and as for your question get the origianal bottle pour 1 3rd into gas 1 rd in intake and 1 3rd in crankcase your welcome.

Re: seafoam

seafoam is the most amazing product i have used. i mean it does what it says. the best way to do it is put half in the tank and quarter in the intake and the other quarter in the oil yes i said oil. i did it to my 240 every two weeks its amazing it made my car run amazing. and when you run it through the intake it will start blowing white smoke out the exhaust dont worry thats normal it just burning everything away.

I wouldn't do it that often, or say goodbye to the seals in your engine. I wouldn't be surprise if your spark plugs were heavily fouled from all the treatments.

To the OP, make sure you change out your spark plugs and engine oil after every treatment. Do it once a year, max.
