i seafoamed my GA16 Sentra just last week. to make a long story short. 1/2-5/8 the can went into the vacuum line into the manifold at an rpm range around 2,000 and it went in quick. the rest went into the crankase. cant say that it did anything cuz at about the same time my starter broke and took my clutch with it....but from what i could tell the engine ran smoother and was a lil more peppy. :dunno: but there was tons of white smoke

91 sentra 2dr E 4 spd......getting stripped and junked...mission aborted
91 NX2k auto eggshell white :cool:
mods: uh...prothanes for when the motor goes in...otherwise stock

What exactly is sea-foam supposed to do? Just clean out the carbon?

Yeah, it mainly cleans out the carbon I guess. I have used it before, usually I pour half of it in the tank, pour some down the TBI while running, and you can even use a vacuum line to suck it directly into the intake. I even poured it through the backpressure bypass line on my EGR which also sucked it right into the motor. It did leave a trail of white smoke the next day for the first couple of miles I drove it, but that is normal from what I gather from others who use it. I think you may be able to use a bit in you crankcase before you change oil, but I'd read the instructions first. My girlfriend's dad uses it every couple of months in his Lincoln and swears by it. Says he always sees a slight increase in MPG while it is running through that tankful ?

Sounds cool. I would probably let the vaccume suck half and half in the tank. Would that work? I figure I got nothin to loose with a 18 yr. old car.

SKD - One thing i've read around is that if your car has more than 150,000 miles you shouldn't use it.. because it will do away with what is sealing the engine up

you would probably still be ok to run it through the fuel system via the gas tank, but with that mileage I'd be a little leary of bulk feeding it into the intake or adding it to the oil, even if it was only short term.
