Sea form, its great, its a small adrenaline, its worth the money
just be careful on how much you put in. i put less than the requirement and still gave me a good result, if you put it in your oil, make sure the motor is hot and off before pouring, than let it seat for a while than do a oil change

Like he said seafoam just make sure you do it right and don't let it sit in the engine for more than 100miles.^^^
