DIY Rx8 Seafoam Cleaning
MAKE SURE ANNOTATIONS ARE ON. This is a DIY of me seafoaming my Rx8. This is being done on my 2004 with 98k miles. This is the second time I've cleaned my 8, the first being at 70k. I hope this is helpful! All the instructions are on the annotations. To make sure everyone's clear, you inject each port twice in order to relieve some of the strain from the starter. Should be roughly 4 oz per port, 8 oz total. You can pour the rest in the tank to help clean up your fuel injectors.





P0420 How To Diagnose A Bad Catalytic Converter -EricTheCarGuy

These tests work as you can see in the video. So the next time you have a P0420 or someone tells you your catalytic converter is bad you'll know what to do to find out if that is indeed the case.

Does Lacquer Thinner Clean Catalytic Converters? -EricTheCarGuy
Link to Scotty Kilmer's Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5icTmYItwiE After watching Scotty's video I was curious if it would actually work. Since we know from my video on diagnosing catalytic converters that the catalytic converters in my Subaru were bad, I though it was a perfect opportunity to try out this theory. I used about 1 quart of lacquer thinner to about 7 gallons of gas. I drove a total of 200 miles and tested the converters. The testing showed a very slight improvement but nothing that I would call significant. It was worth a try. I can say that I did not notice any issues with drivability during or after the test. It may not have fixed the problem, but it didn't seem to cause any other problems either. I feel the check engine light that came on was just a coincidence and not the result of putting lacquer thinner in the gas tank. Here's some useful links for you.

Cleaning Catalytic Converters with Sodium Hydroxide -EricTheCarGuy
Let's face it, replacing a catalytic converter can be expensive. So if there's a way to clean them, I'm sure you'd rather try that first before paying good money for a new one. After 2 other attempts to clean my catalytic converters I've decided to try sodium hydroxide this time. In my previous attempts I did not follow the recommended procedure for cleaning. In this video I make sure that I follow a procedure that will hopefully yield a result and allay any concerns about my cleaning methods. Let's face it, catalytic converters can be expensive, very expensive. If there's a way to clean them over replacing them, I'm sure you'd want to give that a try before you shelled out the big bucks for a new one. So in this video I show you another possible method of cleaning your catalytic converter. Remember this isn't even worth trying if your catalytic converter is physically damaged. Also, be sure to fix the underlying problem that caused the catalytic converter not to function in the first place. If you have a misfire or an engine that burns a lot of oil, be sure and address those issues as well, if not, you'll likely be right back where you started in short order.

Clear check engine light for less than 5 dollars
More Tutorials on my CHANNEL: http://www.youtube.com/user/moccina *This video is an EXPERIMENT I wanted to try on my car, and is for INFORMATIONAL purposes ONLY. This fix is for off-road use. The content shown in this video is not intended to encourage emissions test cheating. I enjoy the process of testing theory because you always learn something new, regardless of the outcome. Using a spark plug defouler kit, I install a "buffer" in between the downstream oxygen sensor and the catalytic converter. Quite often, frustrated car owners get the P0420 code for reasons other than a bad cat. I have heard of people getting the code just because they removed the converter and reinstalled it. It can also happen if you run your vehicle out of gas etc... etc... It is also common for car owners to get the P0420 code, replace the converter, and both o2 sensors-- only to have the code come back after 1000 miles or so. This can be a very frustrating, time consuming and of course-- expensive venture. Here is one way to resolve the issue. Good luck and have fun!
