2 Can of Seafoam & 1 Can of Deep Creep - 1 can goes into your fuel tank and half of the other one goes into your oil and the other half goes through the brake Booster line. The Deep Creep is sprayed through the throttle body. Let the vehicle sit 15-20 mins. and start up and watch the smoke show. If you have no smoke your vehicle didn't have any carbon build up to clean off.

Seafoam in a WRX
This is a clean-out of my engine with seafoam. Great smokeshow. Seemed a
lil bit peppier as per the buttDyno. Also did this to a friends
Forester today *sorry no vid* but that helped ALOT.
I do not own the car anymore. Traded it in a while ago for a different
Sea Foam motor treatment, should you use it? How should you use it? - Auto Information Series
This video gives my take (opinion) on the world famous Sea Foam combustion
engine treatment additive. Often people reach for Sea Foam when something
goes wrong with their car. They believe flushing the motor out with Sea
Foam will fix it. Not likely, especially with a well maintained vehicle.
This aggressive motor treatment can flush unwanted deposits, crud, buildup
from the inside of your motor or fuel system. It will not fix broken parts.
DIY: Clean Fuel Injectors, Get Better MPG, Get More Horsepower with Seafoam
In this video tutorial, we show how to clean out your fuel injectors, get
better mileage and more horse power using Seafoam. This is a fairly safe
method, but we are not responsible for any harm done to your car.
To clean your fuel injectors, you want to add half a can to a full can of
Sea Foam into your gas tank after performing this procedure.

Sea foam engine cleaner in a Subaru WRX
A friend of mine asked me to tape him putting Sea Foam engine cleaner in
his 2004 Subaru WRX. I had to laugh because a neighbour walked over to ask
if he blew his turbo! Lot's of smoke
that's for sure!
Quick Tip-Throttle Cleaning - EricTheCarGuy
This one goes out to BowlingBallOut who posted a question about a sticky
throttle on his Saturn. It was a great question so I decided to make this
video in response to it. There are many different configurations of
throttle assemblies but for the most part if you have a throttle that is
sticking you might be able to fix it using the procedures in this video. I
am aware you may not able to purchase spray throttle cleaner in some states
now but I'm sure they have some alternative available at your local parts
One very important note here is that if you have a drive by wire throttle
(DBW), then I do NOT recommend this procedure. If you perform this
procedure on a DBW throttle body you may need to have the throttle reset in
order to get your engine to idle or even start. I only recommend this
procedure if you're trying to correct a problem with a sticking throttle.
If you have idle problems, I recommend you check out this article on my

How to Seafoam your vehicle (Also called Top Engine Clean)
This is a carbon deposit cleaner that when used can help eliminate the
carbon deposits that build up in the top end of your engine block. I
perform this about every 15,000 miles on my own vehicle.
Steps to seafoaming:
1. Bring your vehicle up to normal operation temperature
2. Separate seafoam canister into 3 equal parts (one will be for sucking
through a pvc line or brakeBooster
line, one for gas tank, and one for putting in the oil filler cap)
3. Locate the PVC valve that runs through the intake manifold, for this is
where you will initially suck 1/3 of the seafoam canister through.
(If PVC is non accessible then you can use your brake Booster line in the same manner.)
4. Once engine is at normal operational temperature, have another person
sit in the drive seat and bring the engine RPM up to around 1500.
5. Pull your PVC off (or brake Booster line) and start slowly sucking 1/3 of
the seafoam in through either of these locations. Be cautious & steady
handed, you don't want to stall the engine out.
6. Once you've sucked all of the 1/3 portion up turn the engine off &
replace pvc or brake Booster to its
7. Once engine is off, unscrew your Oil Filler cap & pour 1/3 of the
seafoam in as if it were oil.
8. Unscrew gas cap and put the remaining 1/3 seafoam in.
9. Leave the car alone for 15 minutes.
10. Come back to the car and start it up, let it idle for about 10-15
seconds and then BRING ENGINE RPMS TO A STEADY 2000-3000RPM for no more
than a couple minutes.
(major revving or fluctuation can knock carbon deposits loose so please
keep a steady foot)
11. Once this is complete, take your car for a 10-15 mile drive, while
doing so make sure to bring the engine through its total rev band spectrum
to make sure all the carbon deposits have been cleaned out.
12. Once the drive is complete, bring the car back home.
13. CHANGE YOUR OIL & FILTER & SPARKPLUGS WITH KNOWN GOOD OEM SPEC PARTS.
(The reasoning behind this is that the seafoam lowers the viscosity of your
oil, thus weakening its ability to control wear on your engines major
mating surfaces and your plugs get buggered up with carbon after this
tuneup due to the carbon coming loose during the tuneup.. So an Oil/Filter
change & Spark Plugs are a must after seafoaming is complete
14. Tune Up is complete!
How to Properly Perform a Fuel System Cleaning
What I am showing you is the proper way to clean the fuel system of your
vehicle. The vehicle in this video is a 1998 Saturn SL2 with a 1.9L DOHC
engine. It has over 177K miles and is the second time a fuel system
cleaning will have been performed. The last time, I had it done
professionally at a local service center. After 20,000 miles, thought I
would figure out how to do it myself and cheaper.
Items you will need are:
- Seafoam Motor Treatment (or equivalent product)
- Self built intake cleaning hose
Components of fuel system cleaning hose:
- 4ft of 3/8"ID Vinyl Tubing
- 1ft of 1/4"OD Polyethylene Tubing
- 1/2" hose mender
- 3/8" x 1/4" barb connector
- 1/4"x1/8" connector
- 1/4" x 1/8" needle valve
All these items you should be able to find at the local hardware or
plumbing shop. This is just a prototype I have created and will be
refining the design as I go along.
Take the needle valve and attach the 1/4" tubing to one end and the 3/8"
tubing to the other. Use the 1/2" hose mender at the end of the 3/8" tubing
(You will have to force it on because mender is a lot bigger than the
inside diameter of the tubing) as the attachment point of the vacuum line.
I will be using Seafoam Motor Treatment for this video. There are other
similar products out there, but this is the one I have chosen. You will
also need a throttle body cleaner as well. Both of these can be found at
your local auto parts store.
1. take the Seafoam cleaner and separate it into 3 equal parts, or since it
is a 16 oz bottle of this particular cleaner, I chose to separate it this
1. 5oz. for the fuel
2. 5oz. for the oil
3. 6oz. for the intake cleaning.
2. Disconnect vacuum hose from the brake Booster. This is the big round drum looking
thing on the driver side at the rear of the engine compartment.
3. Take the intake cleaner hose you have just put together and attach the
1/2" hose mender to the vacuum line.
4. Take 5oz. and add to the fuel tank. Use a funnel to help keep the
cleaner off vehicle paint.
5. Remove oil cap and pour the other 5oz. in with the oil.
a. This will clean the lower end of the engine.
6. Take the bottle with the remaining cleaner fluid and poke a hole in the
top so that the hose 1/4" hose can fit through.
7. Somehow have it so it is hanging above the engine and that the 3/8"
tubing connected to the vacuum line is straight.
8. Make sure the needle valve is closed all the way and start the vehicle.
9. While running, slowly open the valve and allow a steady stream of
cleaner to enter the engine. Don't open the valve too quickly or you will
let too much cleaner in and may stall the engine.
10. Once the can is drained, turn off vehicle and let it sit for between
a. This will "Hot-soak" the engine and break up the carbon and
tarnish build up.
11. Reattach the vacuum line to the brake Booster. Very important or your engine will
run at higher RPM's and you may not have brakes.
12. During the wait, you can clean the throttle body by removing the intake
hose from your air filter exposing the butterfly valve. Open this valve
and spray in the cleaner. Make sure all surfaces are covered and let this
cleaner sit and break up the build up on and behind the butterfly valve.
a. DO NOT perform this step if you have a Mass airflow sensor.
These are very delicate sensors and expensive to replace. Do not messed
b. If you want to be more thorough, take a cloth or some type
of swab and manually clean off the build up that way it does not get sucked
into the engine.
13. Reattach the intake hose
14. After the wait, start the engine and rev the engine to between
2000-3000 RPM to blow the buildup and cleaner out through the Exhaust. The engine is going to start rough so
make sure you are ready to step on the gas to keep it running.
15. When you see that the smoke is becoming lighter, drive it for about 20
minutes to finish the process of cleaning.
16. You may see a check engine light come on, this is normal. Have someone
scan it to be sure and then erase the codes. It will most likely show
cylinder misfire and O2 sensor malfunction codes. If it is something else
then investigate further.
You have completed a complete fuel system cleaning. It is recommended on
the bottle that you perform this every 2000-5000 miles. I would recommend
every other oil change, or for those that drive a lot, at least twice a
year. This helps maintain horsepower, and fuel
If you have not done this procedure before, it is probably a very good idea
to have this done, either professionally or by yourself.
