Sea Foam. does it actually help?

Post by bk7794 » Thu Jun 28, 2012 1:19 pm

I don't think I would ever use this stuff because I could imagine my cat being clogged after doing this, but does it actually do anything productive?

I've never used it myself, but people everywhere rave about the stuff. Personally, I'd hope my car never gets to the point that Seafoam would be beneficial.

If your car gets old, Seafoam would be beneficial. Its Italian Tuneup in a can.

Used it in multiple high mileage vehicles I've owned. Some have experienced clogged injectors (flow tested to be sure) and Seafoam worked great.

BS! I know for a FACT that diesel fuel is better for EVERY engine EVER made. Diesel engines have lasted longer for years, it's a commonly known fact. Why? Because the diesel fuel. So always use diesel fuel!
