I am not a fan of Sea Foam. I've seen it cause more issues than solve any. What is the problem you are trying to solve?

This would not be a good idea. That hose is the vacuum hose for the power booster. You don't want to get any type of moisture in the vacuum system. This will cause the vacuum system to not operate properly.

2010 Kia Soul sometimes won't go in reverse. After I run it forward for a few miles it will work


Sure it's not low on trans fluid? Get a can of Sea-Foam Transmission Treatment(NOT MOTOR treatment) and add it according to directions. If it's a sticky valve body or servo, the Sea-Foam will get it going.
Once it starts working, do a fluid and filter change and it should be okay. don-ohio

My volvo has sat up for hey year and a half and I put a new battery in it yesterday and crank it up and its own a little bit like the older all those it wasn't quiet like it normally he is so I'm wondering...


I would add a little Sea Foam product to oil and if you have 1/2 tank of fuel, add 1/2 can of Sea Foam to gas.
If your gas is old the Sea Foam should help.

I want to do the sea foam on my 2003 silverado 1500hd but I can't find the vacuum line?


You don't need that or any product for use on any vehicle

If you have problems provide the details & go about
properly diagnosing the issues & resolve with a repair,
not a genie in a can

You have instructions on the can

You have egr vacuum hose,you have the throttle
body intake,you have vacuum lines

Sea Foam comes in different forms I believe,
for different entry into intake

Car running lean on bank 2, changed intake gaskets and pcv valve


what does exhaust smell like you may have carbon build up in engine try removing o2 sensors and cleaning with brake clean and reinstalling reset code and see if it comes back and how long it takes to reset also you can put a can of berryman in the gas tank with at least 1/2 tank of gas or more also buy a can of sea foam and install through vacuum booster hose you may see lots of black smoke from tail pipe if so after following instructions for application drive some what hard and if the black smoke continues fore at least a mile keep driving and if you notice a diff in runability but still have a little black smoke buy another can of sea foam and repeat service NAPA has sea foam on sale this month

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..

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


I have been using sea foam for years. A little goes a long way. I usually use a couple of cap fulls at fill up. The same goes for the oil when changing it. I don't use sea foam for the brake system. Only DOT3 brake fluid from a sealed container unless otherwise specified.

Ticking in the motor


Sounds like you have a lifter that is sticking. Purchase a can of Seafoam Motor Treatment at Advance Auto Parts, Walmart, and many other suppliers. I have used this product many times and it is fantastic. This is not a motor treatment such as some of the others you see advertised to improve mileage or stop oil burning. This is a legit product that many mechanics trust. To clean lifters, add 1½ oz. Sea Foam to each quart of oil. Sea Foam will slowly re-liquefy the old oil varnish residue that builds up on lifters and prevents them from functioning normally. This process can be done as part of a pre service cleaning by adding the Sea Foam to the oil at least 30 miles before the next oil change interval. OR it can be done as a preventative maintenance process without changing the oil. You can leave Sea Foam in the oil indefinitely as long as the oil is clean. The addition of a high-detergent oil like Sea Foam may cause the oil to become dirty faster than normal as buildup oil residue and contamination are cleaned. Check the oil at regular intervals and when it gets dirty, change it. http://www.seafoamsales.com/how-to-use-sea-foam-motor-treatment.html
