I have been present while people used it. It can blow a bunch of crap through the exhaust that can clog the Cat. Other than that, it seemed to clean it up well.

Sea Foam dates back to when carburetors were the norm. They do have a very mature formula, but it's actually a bit aggressive on a fuel injection system IMO. Better off having a shop run some 3M (or similar) cleaner through the pressure test port on the rail, works better than anything. If you really want to use the Sea Foam you can run it through they gas, or suck it in through any line that will feed into all four holes, a vacuum line on the manifold works well. It does make a smoke screen though. I've actually done that on my 1.6 when it was running funny, it cleared it up but also tripped an 02 code on the #1 sensor. Best of luck to you.

I wouldn't put it in the fuel, just suck it in a vac line.


X2, i poured about 1/3 of the can in thru the brake booster hose and let it sit for about 5 mins. , i started it up and didn't rev it, let it sit at idle and then after a lil while started to rev it up to about 3k and saw clouds of smoke pour outta the exhaust ( i have no kitty CAT ) , after it went away the idle felt pretty solid and i noticed a lil bit better fuel economy.....maybe placebo, maybe not either way its cool
