Re: CRD and Sea Foam - any experience?
seafoam advertises as being diesel compatible and I also have used it on my gasser with good results. in my gasser experience, seafoam works best when added directly to the intake manifold and then left to soak and then take your vehicle for a run. these crd diesels are much higher compression ratio and dumping into the intake make cause internal damage.
i did read a thread on the Sprinter owner forum about a guy that did an crd diesel intake cleaning with a solvent and then removed the glow plugs to allow the intake gunk to spray out, so as not to damage the engine. he said it worked well but I'd like to see the procedure and results myself before attempting it on my crd.
