    I believe I disconnected the vaccuum line from my fuel pressure regulator. It sputters a little bit as it's sucking it in. Directions on the can. It works let me tell ya!

    Not sure, cars been running funny lately. Got the cel going on every day. I think it helped though, it felt a little quicker. It looked like I set off a smoke bomb when I started it up.

    the smoke is suppose to happen, what exactly is it doing when you say its "running funny" has it been acting like that before you used the foam?

    Yup, going to get an obd 1 tester today. Car stalls out on me every once in a while when its cold, did it this morning, battery light came on a few days ago, but haven't seen it since. It doesn't feel as fast as it should be.

    could be a vaccume leak?

    Anyways ya seafoam is supposed to smoke its clearing out all the carbon/build up. It wont effect/hurt your car.

    Codes read that my O2 sensor is detecting a lean condition, thermactor problems and some other egr issue. I'm on my last string with that egr pos, its been nothing but problems for the last two years. One more error code from it and its getting ripped off.

    a quick summary................you inject it into your motor, let your car idle while it smokes like a freight train and it cleans all the nasty stuff you dont want in your engine out ::) its very popular from all the crap i've read about it
