Now if I could make a rig that fogged it in before the throttle body, it would be liquid gold. The booster line goes to the intake, if I remember correctly, which neglects to clean the rest of the induction system further upstream.
Still a good product. I just need to cobble something together for a small, low volume fogger...

Its only like 6 dollars here in Portland.. thats a big price differance.

I did it on my 06 Tacoma with about 65K and my girlfriends 96 Civic with 180K and smoothed the idle and all that just like you said. Great stuff in my opinion...

Girlfriends car smoked like hell for like 15 mins of driving and my truck gave a couple poofs and then was clean . . Cleaner engine with lower miles? I dunno

Yea, it's about $9 per can at Wal-Mart.

I've used it before in the tank and vacuum hose. Got a smoother idle out of it.

We made one with an inline fuel petcock and some fuel line. Works great.

Nothing about seafoam sounds like it could be good for anything in your engine... Just watched a lot of youtube on it. I'm skeptical...

love seafoam. i use it on everything.........trucks/cars/lawn mowers/golf carts. it simply works.

berryman b12 chemtool also works good, but moreso in cleaning gummed up carburetors from lawn mowers and such.

This thread is a good read:

http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/1st...0-seafoam.html

Post 7 has vacuum hose location.

Run engine to get it nice and warm before the procedure.
You can easily disconnect that hose from the brake booster (round black thing on the driver side firewall). It'll be sucking air and the engine will continue to run. I measured out 1/3 of the can in a glass measuring cup and SLOWLY poured it in while my friend gave it gas to about 2000 rpms so it doesn't stall.

Then the truck was turned off for 10 minutes, then I took it for a drive.

I followed the instructions on the can and on the official website.

I don't believe it. Nothing works better that frequent oil changes and maintenance by Toyota( or your favorite garage) every 30k. Most Gasoline has additives to keep your injectors/carbs clean and the valves from loading up with carbon. Believe me guys, this stuff is expensive snake oil.

I imagine you've never used it, if you're making that statement.

lol It's not like it performs a tune up and adjusts your timing. Just cleans the internals a little.

Yea, and it does. But if you have a stretched timing chain or plugged injectors where it can't go through, then it's not going to do a whole hell of a lot.

Additionally, your first question makes no sense, buddy. When did you say what did what?
