    You know once you get to the last page of that thread you get a message from Al Gore.
    "You have come to the end of the internet. Please return your cable/dsl modem"

    That was lame i know ;D
    (Al gore invented the internet you know..... and thats a big thread about seafoam lol.)

    On your passenger side of the engine, there is a "elbow" fitting coming out of the valve cover. The hose coming off of that is it. I can't remember where it goes back into the engine cause my engine is not the same anymore. But disconnect the hose from that elbow and use a small funnel to pour the Seafoam into the hose (going in the direction away from the valve head). Have the engine running, get a flathead screwdriver to prop open the throttle lever a little off of the throttle stop. This will keep your idle running a little higher so your car won't die when you pour it in. Only use half a can and only pour in a little at a time. Once you do that, if I remember correctly, shut off the car for about 10-15 minutes then start it back up and run the hell out of it till the smoke clears.

    Good stuff.

    I was going to do it but now VertTireSmoke has scared me out of it. I'm looking into the amsoil engine flush. It seems to get good reviews here.

    Guys...!!! Haven't you ever heard of "funnels"? You can get a small set of about 3 or 4 at the grocery store of various sizes from large to small. That's what I did... bought a set for my car. Maybe $5. I use the smaller one for the PCV hose and I use the larger one for my intercooler reseviour (sp?).
