What ratio sea foam are you using? As per the instructions on the can? Was the engine shuddering and bucking before you put in the sea foam? Why did you think you needed to put sea foam in there? Have you replaced the fuel filter? If not, start there.
otherwise take the vehicle to get the trouble codes in the computer scanned..there will be some there..and it may be as simple as a spark plug not firing, coil not working etc.

Having problem with my toyota camry feeline breathing check light coming on car bucking when driving


if your car is bucking when driving it due to a fuel line issue then replace the fuel line if that's not the issue or if it continues then i would make sure your carbuator is cleaned out well and run some seafoam through the gas tank

It could be the fuel filter, bad gas over a period of time, it could be a number of things. Try an additive called Seafoam, you can buy it at any auto parts store. Pour the whole bottle into your tank before you fill up and see if that helps. Maybe you have crude build up. It usually is from using cheap gas but I don't know a time frame of ownership of your car.

I want to SeaFoam my 2000 Chevy Silverado, How much SeaFoam goes in the gas tank and ind the brake hose or oil tank?


DO NOT USE SEAFOAM IN BRAKE RESIVOIR!!!!! That being said it can go into the gas tank and the oil. Use 1 can of Seafoam in the gas tank. If you are going to change the oil soon you can use 1/2 to 3/4 of a can in the oil. Make sure to change the oil in less than 100 miles. Seafoam thins out the oil and if it is in too long can cause some parts to not get oiled enough. Good Luck!

Sluggish during ecceleration, loses power


A 16 oz can of SEAFOAM motor treatment into the gas tank.

Purchase SEAFOAM at walmart, NAPA, auto parts stores.

http://www.seafoamsales.com/how-to-use-our-products.html

Around $9.00 a can.
Be careful putting this stuff in the tank, don't spill on the car's paint!

I do not work for seafoam, I use this stuff and it works!

How to use seafoam on Z32 (1990. nonturbo)? I dont know how to use on vacuum line ?


there are multiple ways to use seafoam on a z32:
gas tank- just add into gas tank to clean injectors, fuel lines, remove deposits from tank itself and clean the valves.
throttle bodies- while leaving the maf sensor on the intake plugged in remove the throttle body hoses one at a time and SLOWLY pour in a little bit of seafoam as a friend revs to about 2k rpms. hold onto the can because there will be suction that can pull the can into the intake. (essentially this is a vacuum approach.
oil- add whole can to oil through the oil cap. run for about 50 miles and change oil. the longer you leave it in the more it will clean things.

depending on your reasoning for wanting to seafoam it the method that would work best varies.
for ticking lifters- through the oil as the ticking sound is a blocked check valve in one of the lifters causing it to slap against the camshaft.
(wynns hydraulic valve lifter treatment from the uk works wonders too)

for cleaning injectors- through gas

just for an engine flush id put half in oil and half in gas run for 50 or so miles and then do an oil change. the gas will take care of itself.

hope this helps...

Runs rough right after starting. runs rough for about 20 seconds and then runs fine after that.


try cleaning ur intake with throttle boby cleaner, an run some injecter cleaner through ur gas tank or use seafoam... (great stuff is seafoam).
if prob. persist check for vac. leak (u can replace all vac hoses for around $20-$25 bucks)
these 2 things should clear it up and r good things to do anyways weather it acually fixes it or not.
if thos dont work check ur sensors (tps, ias) u can go get a free check engine serv. done at autozone then ref. the codes to figure it out or let me know.
good luck and good jeepin
