I think you answer is drain it out and don't use it again without searching online for other users comments.

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.

No fuel on my outboard motor

Empty out the old gas and refill with new gas, check for broken or cracked fuel hose(s),also change the fuel filter, put in Seafoam Motor Treatment into the gas tank and let it sit to clean the deposits in the fuel system then after its started let is burn all the gas and Seafoam thats in the tank, ( follow directions on the Seafoam bottle ) you will likely see lots of thick white smoke, but its nothing to worry about, its just cleaning the deposits by burning the deposits, once you see little or no smoke its good to drive that boat again, while working on that boat, it would not hurt to have clean, air filter and new spark plugs to help keep the motor running smoothly and keep it running good.

I have a 1995 pathfinder that keeps stalling on me when I start slowing down

Mine did the same thing. We cleaned the throttle body and poured Sea Foam, a gas treatment, in the gas tank... also check the air filter while you are at it. worked for me.

Only right after filling up with gas, the engine seems to either flood or cutoff when arriving at the first stop sign or stop light or better yet from the first higher RPM's down to 0 RPM's. Any ideas...

Bad gas. Put some seafoam in your gas tank or heet fuel line gas treatment. You may have fueled up after the tanker truck filled the gas pumps and water in the tank may have been mixed up with the new fuel.

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.

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!

Where is this valve located? Also, if this valve were bad would it keep the engine from starting when the temperature is below 20 degrees?

you might have water in the fuel lines, because when the fuel lines freeze up you won't get gas to the engine.
put some seafoam fuel treatment in the gas tank will help

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...

Diesel engine... more power.?

I have heard it, but I would advise using the fuel treatment from the auto parts store, that is guaranteed, and made for cleaning. The gas deal could possibly foul your sensors from the cumbustion ratio, and may cause other problems. I would suggest buying a can of "seafoam" I love it, you can put it in your oil, fuel, and intake, and you wouldn't believe the garbage that comes out of your exhaust and in your oil after about 3000 miles. I usually only put it in my oil, and gas, but never tried the intake. Seafoam is the way to go. Should find it at any parts or hardware store. its in a white steel can. Good luck
