    Well I bought two cans at walmart for 8.50 a piece , and was hoping to clean up my old outboard mariner. After about five minutes the difference was unbelievable. So I figured why not seafoam my taco. My truck is a 2010 with 20K miles, and I could not believe the junk that came out of the tailpipe. Now the truck idles and runs like it did the day I got it. What a difference. Anyone have similar results on a newer taco?

    My luck, I'd hydrolock it. Not wanting to even chance it.

    It does work very well for older engines. I think your mind is playing tricks on you though with the '10 @ 20k miles. You should be able to eat out of your intake manifold w/ that mileage. I have 85k miles and mine still runs great.

    Do your neighbors hate you now lol ?

    I seafoamed my sister's car once and she actually got pulled over because the cop thought her motor was about to blown.

    You won't hydrolock it. I've done it a bunch of times to different cars and never had an issue.

    Ha yea looked like the fog was rolling in. On the motor I took a section of gas line with the bulb, stuck one end in seafoam and pumped it straight in, worked like a champ

    Wouldn't hurt a thing. Always good to keep the engine clean. Remember 1/3 straight to engine, 1/3 in oil tank, 1/3 in fuel tank

    Anyone who has abused the hell out of their engine, or who is a little late on the oil change can benefit from this. It helps remove deposits left behind

    Back to square one after the 2001. So...
    You know, i have still not done the induction process on mine, because I have one lingering concern; all that carbony crap that gets blown off the valves and cylinders needs to go downstream, and the expensive cat is...right in harm's away. Seems like it would contribute to the cat's early demise. Any thoughts or experience with this?

    yea it will. Locate the line on the left of the brake booster that goes straight to the engine. Crank up engine disconnect line from booster, slowly let it suck in, cut the engine off, wait 5 minutes, crank up, let it idle and then drive around

    Locate the line on the left of the brake booster that goes straight to the engine.
    Crank up engine, disconnect line from booster, slowly let it suck in the seafoam
    cut the engine off, wait 5 minutes,
    crank up again, let it idle a while and then drive around
