Question Seafoam

Read some of the stuff said about Seafoam. I going to change my oil in a couple weeks and I thought I would try some. Half in the intake and half in the tank. Were do I put it in the intake? On the 2.3 the booster line on the intake is in the upright position. Also how long will this thing smoke.Plan on putting in and run for about 10 mins and change oil.

it depends on how much crap is in the engine on how long it will smoke

Dont pour into intake pull the line off the brake booster and it will suck it from there

i bet yours will smoke for at least half an hour, mine smoked for almost an hour last time i did it, when it finally stopped i drove it a few miles and put new plugs in it, if i were you i would put new plugs in too

hammy, sea foam is cheap, buy a can and read the instructions on it

I bought a can for under 15 dollar I think

I poured some into the tank some into the crankcase and some through the brake booster

Seafoam at the parts store is abought $10.00 looks like a can will do it.I just change the plugs back a few months ago.The plugs I took out I believe were from 1996. They were clean but I check the gap on them it was 89. So there may be some stuff in there.I never thought about changing plugs afterwards, but I will just hate those twin plugs.
