Just pour it slowly into the brake boosted vac line, pour some in youe oil and gas tank. Just alittle in the ags and oil. Then the rest slowly into the vac line. Also when it goes into the gas line dont freak out when white smoke goes everywhere

AGS is only used by Dyslexic cars.

Yours is probably gas only.

I think he meant "gas". Lol. You can put it in just about anywhere. It's like windex, but for cars.

If you put it in your oil be sure its scheduled before you do oil change because you will need to replace seafoam contaminated oil with fresh oil once you are done before continuing daily use of the vehicle.

No because the people I hang around with are not too ****ing lazy to do a search.Obviously you are too stupid to understand each time a new worthless thread is started that it adds to the search function so when people like me that are not too lazy to use it have to dig through all the bull**** threads that people have started to find what we are looking for.

Ever since they changed the serach function so that it shows all the crap that doesn't have the term I'm looking for IN THE THREAD TITLE, it's too much of a PITA to use half the time. Is there something wrong with asking the local people, hoping NOT to get a douchebag response?



Have you ever made a post in which you DIDN'T come off as disgruntled as hell?

I did this to my Legacy and to Todd's Impreza.... I dunno about Todd's results with his lower miles but it sure cleaned up my high milage (200,000mi) engine. It used to hesitate like crazy and would barely accelerate. Engine feels brand new now.

I put about 2/3s of the bottle through the PCV line that sticks out of the middle of the intake manifold. Just open that up and swivel the hose around so that it sticks up, and funnel it in through there. Have a buddy modulate the RPMs around 2000 so you don't stall it out and pour it SLOWLY. If you dump too much in you'll flood the engine. Dump the rest into the gas tank. I've never bothered with oil because putting a solvent in my oil doesn't seem like an overall fantastic idea.

It's also pretty amusing to smokescreen your whole block with this stuff.

I thought this was what a local forum was for was to get locals who have done and tried things like this and to report their results or help out other locals.

No need to insult people. Use the subscribe feature for the threads you're interested in and then you don't have to 'dig'. Hitting the back button instead of posting your worthless commentary will help prevent this thread from getting bumped anyway. Everything has been covered before.

A couple things.
Put about a half bottle into you bypass valve vacuum line. (small hose on your BPV)
put 3/5 remaining bottle into gas tank.
put the rest into oil, then change the oil in about 30-50 miles. (the oil one is very optional. Personally I think the gas and vacuum line take care of everything that needs it.)
