No, sea foam is good for keeping fuel system clean, it is not that flammable but will burn with fuel. Is the fuel old if so replace it with new high octane and check plugs for fuel fouled

It shuuters an bucks after using seafoam motor treament in gas tank


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.

I have a 1996 Ariens ST-24 snowblower that is hard starting. When it does start it runs just fine. The Tecumseh engine has a primer and I run synthetic oil, 5W30 Mobil 1 and use non-oxy gas with Sea


You could have a hole you cant see in the primer or line to the carb. They vibrate and rub. Make sure you DONT use eco gas. This will turn your gaskets to trash in one summer of not using it. Lastly dump out the old gas and start with new. Snow blowers are famous for condensation building in the tank. Hope I helped

I just replaced my batt after not useing the car for 9 months and the car wont start


How much gas is in the tank? Is the gas old? If you only have a few gallons in the tank i would advise you to put 5 gals of fresh gas and a bottle of sea foam gas addititve.. if you gas is old it starts to turn to varnish and gets sticky, it smells really bad too.Go to auto zone or wal mart to get the sea foam and add it to a five gallon gas can then add your fresh gas into you car tank..You can also get the sea foam in a spraycan form that you can spray directly into your air intake..Can you hear if the fuel pump is running? Take your gas cap off and put your ear up to the filler tube to see if you can hear you fuel pump working, it sounds like a high pitch whinning sound..Have someone turn the key on while you listen for it..

First, look for broken or loose wires in the ignition circuit, and the coil wires. Then try fuel filter. Then, ignition module, coil, and timing. It could also be dirty or clogged injectors.

I have a 1997 dodge pickupwith a 318 engine, fuelled up the other day and now the truck keeps stalling while driving.is it possibly my fuel pump is faulty or could it may need a new fuel filter


I WOULD START WITH THE CHEAPEST WAY OUT. FIRST GET A CAN OF SEA FOAM FROM YOUR LOCAL PARTS STORE AND POUR IT INTO YOU GAS TANK, THIS WILL COST YOU ABOUT $9.00. IF THIS DOESN'T HELP TRY THE FUEL FILTER, AND THEN THE PUMP.

Hard start wont run more than a few minutes


sounds like the air bypass valve may be stuck ,try pulling off a small vaccum line. the valve is used instead of a choke plate. when engine is cold it bleeds air around the throttle plate raising the idle.
