    Seafoaming an engine?

    Has anyone on here done it? I'm thinking on picking up a kit and doing my BMW 3-Series. What differences did you notice?

    I did it to my firebird quite a few times. Be sure you do it in a WELL ventilated area. How many miles are you the car? What kind of gas do you normally run thru it? I know when I did my car there was an extra bit of power there, and a bit better response.

    The car has 75K Miles, and I've been using 93 Octane it's supposed to take carbon build up out of the engine and intake right?

    yes sir. Dump some into the pcv valve, the brake booster line and into the gas tank. That's were I poured mine. Be sure there's a breeze going or something. A little windy. Your neighbors most likley will hate you once smoking has begun.

    I do this every year to my cars. It is excellent preventative maintenance.

    It only smokes if you pour it in one of the vacuum lines( Its always fun to ride down the road while you truck looks like it is blowing up ). I run it through the vacuum hose off the brake booster, in the crankcase, and in the gas tank about every third oil change.

    1/2 can in the oil; 1/2 can down the throttle.

    I also put 1 qt of transmisison fluid in the gas every month or so.

    That is also a good idea, so I've heard. My uncle told me to do that the help keep all the seals fresh or something.

    Cleans out some deposits and lubricates the fuel system. Transmission fluid is very high in viscosity and detergents.
