Re: Engine light on

Poured it down the vacum hose that connects to the brake booster. Yes very slowly

Re: Engine light on

Yes, i had a very rough idle. I poured a whole can in the gas tank, 1/2 can in the crankcase, 1/2 can down a vacuum hose... I did an oil change a few days later and boy did it come out black.. When i removed the resonator, i sprayed some deep creep (another sea foam product) into the throttle body.. That really didn't do much, so i just removed it... It was extremely dirty. i soaked it in some gas, and scrubbed the heck out of it.. i also removed the iac... cleaned that also.. Once i replaced everything.....the difference was UNBELIEVEABLE... extremely responsive and the rough idle smoothed out a little...I'm changing my plugs in the morning.. cant wait to see how that gonna turn out

Re: Engine light on

The old man from the company told me you can add it to your oil anytime and drive all you want.

I have done the brake booster hose trick in the past, but I dont plan on it for at least 40K miles
