Sea Foam: Great Way to Clean Your Engine For $10.00!

I'm always a skeptic of wonder products. The "too-good-to-be-true" products usually turn out to be just that..

Well recently, I wanted to try out one of these products. Its called, "Sea Foam." You probably haven't heard of it. None of my friends in the automotive industry hadn't either. And yet, when I went to my local AutoZone, there it was, sitting right there on the shelf in the fuel additives section..

The following is my actual reaction after using it: "HOLY ****! Its amazing!!"

Okay, so now that I have established that in my case it did in fact work, let me talk a little bit about how to use Sea Foam, and how it works.

SeaFoam is a cleaning additive which can be added to gasoline, ethanol, diesel, and oil (both synthetic and conventional.)

When added to gasoline It claims that it can clean dirty carburetors and fuel injectors.
When added to diesel it claims to eliminate water in the system and keep the fuel from gelling up.
When added to the crankcase (oil,) it eliminates sticky lifters, cleans rings, and PCV valves.

I purchased their non aerosol 16oz can. I put approx 6 oz into the oil and the remaining 10oz into the gas tank. The results were almost instantaneous upon starting the vehicle. (Which is a 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 4.0 L6, approx 170,000 miles on the ODO.)

The lifter ticking was gone. The idle was smoother. Even power seemed to be higher. This product really does work..

Please note: When running Sea Foam, be prepared for light to moderate to heavy amounts of white smoke pouring out of the tail pipe. This is normal, and will wear off as soon as all the Sea Foam has passed through the system.

I have a situation where my son is accused of driving my 2004 Subaru Forester with the lights off at night. In my experience the lights have always stayed on. As long as the car is in drive, I believe the lights remain on, is this true?


i think you will find the headlights are on for safety, but not the tail lights, unless you turn ON the lights. common feature in lots of cars, including my outback and my hyundai.

many folks get DUIs from this as they leave the bar, and the road being illuminated before them, they never turn on the lights. the clue is supposed to be that the dash lights are not on unless the light switch is ON. often times in the morning i wonder why i can't turn my fog lights on, always turns out to be that i have not yet actually turned on my lights.

good luck with that
