I used sea foam,poured a can through my air system-brake booster.and now my jeep is iguess you woud say studering,missing,any Idea why?
Various cleaners my cause temporary performance weirdness after you use them, but they shouldn’t persist. If there’s a lingering issue, I suggest having a mechanic check it out. The cleaners should never do any damage unless poured into the wrong place.
Obviously didn’t use product as intended. Website and can clearly state to use the upper engine, intake cleaner spray, not the liquid. That goes in the tank and engine oil. Also don’t pour it in the brake booster! Put it trough the throttle bottle before the valve and keep throttle up. Use product as advised!
This stuff is awesome. My truck was stalling out when I was idling. Went to the store and got Sea foam motor treatment, instantly my car was running properly again.
What kind of car do you have? My car is doing the same thing ! I have an 01 infiniti i30. I’ve heard good and bad about seafoam.. but still don’t know what to do. I can’t afford to change the fuel filter right now.
I have a 05 Mazda 6 and had tugging and jerking after using another gas treatment. My mechanic told me to use Seafoam and put premium gas in the car (fill up) I ran it about 30 miles already and haven’t felt the tugging anymore.
I have a 2011 cruze. I used a can of spray sea foam. Theres no difference in preformace still has carbon build up. I injected it through the throttle body. Had a slight hesitation for the first 45 km and cleared up.
My best advice to you all is this…change O2 sensors every year with a tune up. Use synthetic oil every 3000K add STP 5in 1 oil treatment to your systemic oil. (5w20 below 15C and 5w30 above 15C). Always, always use premium gas…higher octane is better
You don’t need seafoam crap…if you do the above your car will run like a dream.
Don’t confuse people people with your engine oil change intervals. 3000k=3,000,000 miles. You’re definitely gonna change your oil before the 3mil mile mark. For the record, most synthetic oils are rated for much higher oil change intervals, so you can definitely run them past the conventional 3k mile mark. If you are going to change synthetic oil every 3k miles, you might as well just run conventional oil. I cannot speak on the other products you recommended as I don’t know about them.
3,000k is about 1864 miles.
Never run premium fuel in a vehicle unless it is recommended and tuned for it. If so it will state ( premium fuel only at the fuel gauge and or the filling door. You may think you are doing your car a favor but in fact slower burning premium will most likely throw your engine computer out of sync when it is program for 87 octane. Contact a reputable automotive shop and they will most likely tell you that. So save the extra 25cents a gallon
If you believe that higher octane is always better, you obviously don’t know what you’re talking about. Sorry.
Without getting technical and beyond the scope of this article, octane is a measure of gasoline’s anti-knocking properties. What is anti-knocking? Well, simply put knocking is a condition in which fuel burns too early in the combustion process, also called pre-detonation or pinging. It’s the instability of gasoline that causes it to burn prematurely and unstably. The higher the octane, the more stable the gasoline.
IMPORTANT: Higher octane gasoline, which is more stable, has no more energy potential than lower octane gasoline. There is no more energy to be had from high octane gasoline, then from low octane gasoline.
What octane gasoline should I be using in my car?
Use only what the owner’s manual specifies. If your car is designed to run on regular gasoline, or 87 octane. If your manual specifies higher octane fuel, such as 89, 91, or 93 use the closest octane rating available at your gas station without going below the specified rating in your manual.
What will happen if I use higher octane gas than I’m supposed to?
A few things. For one, you will be wasting a huge amount of money paying for high octane gasoline. Second, your car will not run correctly, whether you notice it or not. Higher octane fuel requires more heat and more precision to burn correctly. If your car is designed to burn 87, it will not burn 93 correctly. Third, your gas mileage will suffer. The inability of your engine to burn the higher octane gas correctly will cause your engine to produce less power and thus will require more fuel to perform at the same level.
GABOR is a clueless Clown! Change your Oil with Synthetic Oil every 3000Kilometers that means you change your oil every 1864 miles. Synthetic Oil is 2-3 times the cost of conventional oil. You’ll be wasting alot of $ if you do this. The weight and viscocity that you should use depends on your vehicle. If your vehicle doesn’t require Premium Gas no need to spend extra $ it doesn’t do anything for you but lighten your wallet. If you want to run STP Oil Treatment during the summer months or in a hot climate that’s fine. It just makes your Oil thicker or heavier so to speak. Sea Foam is a great product and I use it all the time. Basically just stick to the common sense maintenance tasks such as regular Oil changes, Transmission Fluid Changes, Coolant changes and mechanical maintenance Brakes, Shocks Struts, etc. and your vehicle will last a long time. Unless it’s a Mopar or Chevy. I own a Toyota. I have 130,000 Miles on it and it still runs like new.
Chevy… 130,000 miles I would hope your car is still good I took my suburban 480000 miles no problems with motor, tranny, just minor electronic parts traded it for a silverado 08 now I got 210000 miles on that with zero problems… and the guy who say change oil every 1800 miles moron… 3,000 just like book says and if oil don’t smell burnt and isn’t black it’s still good doing it’s job
I used Amsoil o-20 and changed it at 80,000 Km. or every year what ever came first. You want to know when to change your oil? Send it to a lab and let them annalize it based on your conditions, weather, average trip length, out door temperatures, towing, condition of the engine. Changing it too often is a waste of money.
U r a pro… Lol
Put Seafoam In My 2001 Toyota Camry 4 cyl 107,000 miles. Ran Half A Tank Of Gas And Engine Light Came On. Code Reader Shows Bad First Bank O2 Sensor. Read Reviews And This Stuff Gets Super Hot And Destroys Sensors. I Suppose That Is What Cooked My Sensor. Never Again Will I Use Seafoam. There Is No Such Thing As A Mechanic In A Can.
if your o2 sencor is shot and you now have cleaned all the crud off of it the computer might only be reading the sensor as bad now that it is cleaned
Sea foam removes carbon build up, ur air flow sensor maintains your air fuel and is located on exhaust down pipe. Ur o2 sensor simply monitors your catalytic converter, if it showing bad it means ur sensor needs to be cleaned from the carbon that got flushed thru ur system, it if is a cat code our cat is bad because the sea foam did its job and cleaned it, and now can give off a good signal.
