Question Seafoam (Again, sorta) ...

Hi guys,

Another Seafoam thread, I know!

I'm looking to Seafoam my '05 RS this Friday. Based upon NASIOC searches I've conducted, it seems that I can use a vacuum line off of the throttle body. Does anyone know which line this is? Can I remove this line and let it suck from a bowl/cup of Seafoam? Or do I have to buy a hose to connect to the TB (if you know what I mean) so it feeds toward the TB and not the other way around?

I'll also be adding it to the crankcase & fuel tank. I've got 136,000km (about 85K miles). I'll let you guys know how it goes.

Thanks for your help.

Matt

Also, is this an appropriate schematic and cleaning procedure for the IAC valve?

EDIT: Ooops, I don't think our cars have an IAC due to DBW (2005+)?

I've searched but the answer isn't clear.

Anyone?

This may or may not help, but regular Seafoam is available in an aerosol can now. It comes with a huge straw and a guide to bend it.
I think most of the hoses pre-throttle body and post-MAF should work okay.

you can seafoam any hose that has vacuum. seeing you don't have maf but use a map sensor. remove.intake and expose t.b start it and start pouring it into the t.b best way to do.it as vacuum hose sometimes only reach 1/2 motor....
