I have read the threads on using Seafoam, but most of those show where to run it in on a D2. Which is the best hose to use on a '94 D1? Would it be the hose that goes from the plenum to the PCV valve, or is there a better one to use?

Thanks
Martin

I fed mine via the breather hose that comes from the driverside valve cover to the throttle body it was a large line so it worked well

SeaFoam Treatment

If you want really great results, buy 3 cans, one for the fuel tank, one for the crank case and one for the induction system. Make sure to run a whole can thru the induction system and when done turn off the engine for at least 1/2 hour, then go drive it had and watch all the smoke coming from your exhaust pipe.

I ran half a can thru it this morning after I cleaned the stepper motor. After doing all this I proceded to change the injectors out. I used 2 1/2 cans of carb cleaner to get the plenum and ram chamber clean. They were gummed with lots of crud and carbon. So far this looks like it has taken care of my engine problems, although I have only run it about 20 minutes idling...

SeaFoam Treatment

SeaFom works well on all engines. Biggest thing I have found while working at different shops is use a full can thru the induction system and then let it set for 1/2 an hour. This give the product a chance to soak into the carbon on the back side of the valves and seat before driving it which causes a greater amount of carbon to be released and burned or passed thru.

SeaFoam Treatment

When I do the SeaFoam thing, usually twice a year, I do all 3. Rach has its own purpose, in the fuel helps the injectors, in the oil helps clean up some sludge and of course in the induction system to help decarbon the engine.
The 3 of them together keeps my truck real happy.

Was your oil clean when you added the SeaFoam? if so give it a 1000 miles and change it, if it was dirty, maybe 500 or so.

Do you just pour one can in the gas on a full tank?

Pavel,
SeaFoam won't just dissolve carbon in 30 minutes, it allows the carbon under heat and compression to be burned or removed as you drive it.


Funrover,
A can in the tank is good, especially if used when taking a trip. The high RPM's and full throttle runs up hills will help clean uo the fuel injectors.
If you can do a can thru the induction system at the same time, it will make a difference, better response and fuel economy.

Mike J,

Is that normal? I ask because I finally bought a can of seafoam and I'm going to pour it in next time I gas up, but if I'm goign to end up with a wasted cat, I rather just return it and get my money back ASAP.

If it killed your cat, you'll be the first one. I doubt it would cause it to make a clanking noise though- I'd suspect your rock incident.
