Default Seafoam

Anybody here use Seafoam?



I've used it a number of times, and it seems to do something, but I'm not a professionally trained mechanic. I usually dont believe the claims made by fluids like this, but seafoam seems to be a little different than regular fuel additives.

Does anybody know how it works?

Seafoam will burn up carbon build up as well as other things that have built up in your engine. In oil, gas, and general debris that comes from the air that your air filter doesn't catch, as well as from general use will build up and stick to pistons, walls, and other components. Seafoam is supposed to clean all of this, as well as lubricate and remove excess of moisture from your system.

I have always had pretty good results from seaform. From general ride quality to gas mileage, it has always been something that I recommend.

I've had nothing but good results with the stuff in all of my vehicles. If it means anything, my '88 Suburban had over 352k miles on it when I sold it and I used Sea Foam in it. Original engine as far as I know. Smoked a bit on start up is all.

Seafoam does work. I've used it on my motorized bicycle, and since I can open up the head easily, I can see the difference.

I know its supposed to do that (burn carbon, etc), but I was wondering how it works...like whats in it and how it burns build up, etc.

I've liked the results too. It scares the crap out of me every time I use it though, when the engine chokes out a little bit when you pour it in the carb/vacuum line. I always think its fun to drive around after using it...blowing smoke all over the place

I've got a buddy who swears by it. I haven't tried it yet but might in the near future. I've heard it does wonders for older engines.

My brother always recomends it and uses it, he's an extremely experienced mechanic (Cars, trucks, weedeaters, everything).

I've always wondered...according to the label you can add seafoam to pretty much any engine fluid and it performs miracles. How is that possible? Also, how can it be so powerful/amazing and still gasket/sensor safe?

I've used it a few times. It makes a bit of smoke in engines that I would expect to have a bit of carbon deposits, and makes more smoke in engines that I would expect to have a ton of carbon deposits. That's about the extent of the qualitative evidence that I have regarding the magical fluid.

But the magical fluid's MSDS suggests that it's about as far from magic as you can get. It's anything but high-tech magic:

Pale Oil 40.00 - 60.00
Naphtha 25.00 - 35.00
IPA 10.00 - 20.00

So mineral oil, naphtha, and isopropyl alcohol. Yeah, naphtha will help clean carbon deposits, but hell so will water (google it,) and it's hard to see how $0.20 of ingredients cost $9 a can.

This stuff works great! I've used it a couple of times, and had a few others use it and no one has had a problem with it not cleaning the crap out. I even throw a few ounces in the oil to help clean up the crank case.
