Now for a Video that many of you have been waiting for. I say that because a lot of people ask about this on various forums and some viewers ask about it. The topic is… Sea Foam, should I use it, how do I use it, how do I know if I need to use it, stuff like that. Simply put, Sea Foam is an additive. There are many additives out there for oil and fuel, fuel injector cleaners, oil stabilizers, Marvel mystery oil mix, all these types of things and when this subject comes up, the Sea Foam topic, the first thing that comes to my mind is… aggressive. All of the things I read on the container, all of the things I hear people say about it, all of the results people claim they get from it, plain and simple, it is an aggressive tactic to use when trying when trying to clean out deposits in the fuel injection system and inside your combustion engine. Here is my car, I know how it has been serviced and maintained, I know that the oil have been changed regularly, I do not believe that I have any gunk or sludge inside my motor because I change my oil often and I use high quality oils, therefore, I do not believe that it is necessary for me to add Sea Foam into my crankcase, to try to clean out deposits. When you read the information on the can, what it does and the benefits that you will gain after you use it, it claims over and over again, due to build up deposits, due to deposit build up, due to a build up of deposits, bla, bla, bla, due to deposits, etc. Therefore, if there is no reason for your car to have deposit build up, I do not think it is necessary to use something as aggressive as Sea Foam to try to clean out the inside of your engine. In the owners manual of your vehicle, it recommends using oil that meets certain specifications. When you look at the seal on the back of your oil container, it will list certain specifications that it meets. It will also list certain things in the product as a standard. In all modern day engine oils, these oils contain detergents. These detergents are part of the oil package, different with various kinds of oil and these detergents are designed to clean the inside of your engine while the oil is cycling through the engine. So when you open your oil filler cap and look in there, you can see oil and if it looks dirty or clean in there. As you can see, I have a little bit of residue on the parts inside my oil cap area but it is not a build up of sludge or something that can be scrapped off with a metal object or anything like that. I can not see any sludge in my engine. Sludge usually builds up in the engine as a result of failing to change as recommended or scheduled oil change intervals. There are 3 primary ways to use Sea Foam, as a deposit build up remover. #1 Is pouring a can of this into your fuel tank. The label states that 1 can will treat between 8 – 25 US gallons. Therefore you need to have at least 1/2 of the fuel tank full, 3/4th would be better. Empty the entire contents of the bottle in the fuel tank and it will lubricate the fuel system, the fuel injectors, clean and lubricate the valves, and remove carbon build up and other types of build up debris that may be inside the fuel system or the passages of the engine that fuel will touch. Since it is in the fuel tank this will touch everything that fuel touches. Another way that this can be used (#2), you can pour it into the crank case, into the oil system as a crank case cleaner. That means that you remove your oil cap and pour 1-1/2 ounces of this in the oil system per quart of oil. So, if your engine holds 4 quarts of oil, you should pour 6 oz of this in the crank case. You can do it before or after an oil change. I have read about people putting this in their crank case, then the container states that you should change the oil once it becomes dirty, so you may drive 50 miles, maybe 100 miles, at any rate this product will be stripping the inside of the engine and oil passages of carbon build up or sludge build up and once that oil is dirty/contaminated with those deposits, change the oil. I have heard of people adding this to their oil driving 10 or 15 minutes and leaving a cloud of smoke everywhere they drive in the process. Then they change the oil to remove the contamination and sludge that has been stripped. Again, if you are going to use Sea Foam as a crank case cleaner, add it as outlined on the instructions 1-1/2 ounces per quart of oil, drive till the oil is dirty, then change your oil immediately. If I were to do this, I would change the oil with in-expensive oil, drive another 100 miles, change the oil again. Drive 1,000 miles and change the oil again. Hopefully those 2 or 3 rapid oil changes will get most of the sludge and other debris that the Sea Foam freed up out of the engine so that your car can resume a normal maintenance schedule. The 3rd and final way that Sea Foam can be used is to allow the fluid to be sucked into the engine while it is running, through a vacuum port. There is a special caution on the label that if you let a vacuum port suck this Sea Foam into the motor, make certain that the fluid will be sucked across all of the cylinders, and not just one bank. Example, my car is an inline 5, I have a vacuum tree here behind my throttle body. I can remove one of the capped ports, connect a vacuum hose to it, put the end of the hose into a measured container of the Sea Foam liquid, allow it to be sucked into the intake and it will reach every cylinder. If you have a V6 or a V8 engine, you will need to insure that any vacuum access that you decide to use, it will need to apply the Sea Foam across all of the cylinder, not just 1/2 of the engine, 3 or 4 cylinders. This container has 16 ounces, the instructions STRONGLY URGES that you only use 5.33 ounces of it to be sucked into the intake system. You should measure out about 5.33 ounces of it into a separate container, access the vacuum that you plan to use, start the motor, and let it suck it in the engine while it is running. Anywhere that the air travels in that intake system the Sea Foam will be sucked into, hopefully stripping away any deposits and carbon build up and other things that will be in its path of your injection system, valves and other areas. It claims to be harmless to your o2 sensors and exhaust so it should be safe to do that. Those are the 3 ways to use Sea Foam. Again, I repeat, Sea Foam is aggressive. There are other additives and things that you can use that should do the same job at a less aggressive rate. If you need aggressive results, use Sea Foam. If you do not need aggressive results, use some other product that is not as aggressive. I use Lucas fuel injection treatment to clean my fuel injectors and fuel system. I have read of other oil treatments that people put in their motor but remember, if you are going to do something that aggressively removes deposits or sludge, be prepared for the results that it gives you, having sludge and debris floating around in your engine until you get it drained out. Hopefully it will NOT clog any small ports or get stuck anywhere while it is loose. Just a recap, Sea Foam will NOT fix parts. It WILL NOT repair a burnt valve. It will not fix a fuel injector that has a failed pulse or electronic part. It is strictly designed to clean deposits off of parts inside of the motor, fuel injectors, valves, rings, pistons, stuff like that. It should also remove sludge in your crank case. Again, it will NOT fix broken parts but it will aggressively clean and strip parts in the engine. In my opinion, the best use of Sea Foam is under the following conditions… If you have a vehicle that has been sitting in excess of 90 days and it has old fuel in it, fuel that you do not want to pump out, pour a can of Sea Foam in there and let the Sea Foam stabilize that fuel, help it go through the fuel system. Another good use would be, if you have evidence of sludge in the motor, or you know that the previous owner did not maintain the vehicle properly. You drain the oil and it seems thicker than it should be, it looks extremely dirty or the vehicle has been sitting in excess of 2 years or something like that. Those are good examples of times that you probably should use Sea Foam. If you have any questions, feel free to post them.
