Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Achieva
I can assume that you mean Sea Foam, the motor treatment. The stuff doesn't work particularly well, but it does pump a lot of smoke out your tailpipe.
They claim that you can dump 1/3 in the crank case (like adding oil), 1/3 in the fuel tank, and 1/3 through the intake. You don't have to do it through the intake, but here's how:
Locate your throttle body (where your air filter leads to - if you need help finding this, have someone step on the gas with the car off, you'll see a cable) Here you'll see some wires and some tubes.
Trace one of the tubes to a clip or junction on the firewall and unclip it with a pair of pliers.
Insert a funnel into the tube, start up the engine (it will run horribly) and slowly add the Sea Foam over the course of 2-3 minutes. If the engine tries to stall out, give it some gas (you can twist the throttle by hand, remember that cable that moved when someone stepped on the gas?). You should see some smoke come from the tailpipe, this is normal.
Rev up the engine - not too high! Keep doing this until the smoke stops pouring out of the tailpipe.
Don't forget to reconnect your vacuum line.
