How To Seafoam Your Vehicle

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.

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.

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) - Pliers - Screwdrivers - Funnel - 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 way: 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 5-15 minutes. 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 with them. 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 efficiency. If you have not done this procedure before, it is probably a very good idea to have this done, either professionally or by yourself. Disclaimer: I am not a certified mechanic. These videos are created for informational purposes only. If you choose to attempt the procedure shown today, you do so at your own risk.

How To Replace Brake Fluid - EricTheCarGuy
As I said in the video I've been asked about this video for some time and I was happy to get the opportunity to make it. Now that I think about it however I did not address ABS systems in this video however the Subaru used does have ABS. For the most part, you can replace the brake fluid and not have to worry about the ABS, however in some cases you might need to bleed the system with a scan tool in order to get the brakes to work properly. Be sure to check the service manual of the vehicle you're working on before committing to bleeding at the wheels. If you're just removing the fluid in the master cylinder, you should not have to worry about the ABS at all. If you're having brake problems, check out this article I wrote on handling brake problems: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/faq/solving-brake-problems The best place for answers to your automotive questions: http://www.ericthecarguy.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy?fref=ts Twitter: https://twitter.com/EricTheCarGuy Google+: https://plus.google.com/100195180196698058780/posts Information on Premium Membership: https://www.ericthecarguy.com/premium-content-streaming-etcg-content Stay Dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.

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 store. 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 website. http://www.ericthecarguy.com/faq/solving-automotive-idle-problems The best place for answers to your automotive questions: http://www.ericthecarguy.com BowlingBalOutl's channel http://www.youtube.com/user/bowlingballout Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy?fref=ts Twitter: https://twitter.com/EricTheCarGuy Google+: https://plus.google.com/100195180196698058780/posts Information on Premium Membership: https://www.ericthecarguy.com/premium-content-streaming-etcg-content Stay dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.





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 original housing. 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!
