Re: Sea Foam: Engine savior or historic hoax???
I love it when added to the engine oil and run for the last 100-200 miles of driving right before an oil change. The engine in my car (VQ series Nissan/Infiniti v6) is known for the oil passages being quite small, and oil having a hard time properly lubricating the top end. As a result, even a small amount of buildup within the upper oil passages can lead to lifter tapping as the miles on the engine increase. The lifter tapping can be quite loud, but it only happens at idle when the engine is warm.

The first Seafoam oil treatment cleaned it up enough to make the lifter ticking go away completely, but then it started to come back by the time the oil neeeded to be changed again, so I repeated the treatment. Now I don't hear it at all, and I continue do Seafoam treatments as preventative maintenance every other oil change. One $7 bottle of seafoam does a little more than 2 oil treatments if I remember correctly. My engine currently has 175k on it.

I don't have any experience with spraying seafoam into the intake system or adding it to the gasoline to clean injectors and the fuel system.

Thanks for all the replies, I find it odd that the product would only be good for outboard boat motors but none the less, I believe it to be good for all internal combustion engines. Just didn't know if there was something I was not aware of in the form of "side effects".

YES, added it to my oil before last change and it clean the heck out of everything, oil looked funky but didn't run it more than about 100 miles.

I forgot to mention it, but look up "Project Farm" on youtube. That guy/channel does great testing videos, and he has a couple on seafoam. His videos are what led me to try it for the first time.

My car didnt pass smog so I used sea foam to clean out the carbon in the throttle body. Took it back and passed smog. Barely but I passed. So now I use all sea foam products.

 Quoting: Blan Halen


It will fuck up all of the sensors including O2 sensors temporarily and the car will run like shit until you restart the computer if you use the gas treatment, which with some more modern cars is not even possible. It is GREAT for use in small engines and older boat motors though. If you put it into a modern car you're going to end up worst off than how you started. On the other hand the oil treatment cleans the engine out slick as a whistle, just dont leave it for more than a hundred miles or so before you drain and discard the oil.

Seafoam has also been known to clog catalytic convertors, which can be a very expensive fix.

Best way to judge an engine cleaner is by the level of cancer warnings on the can.

Anyone remember ACDelco's X66 in the white and red cans? That stuff had crazy warnings and it worked amazing.

I wish it was still available...long live X66

Seafoam is great for spraying in carburetor of small engines as you run them out of fuel before storage. Keeps the internals lubed up.

Re: Sea Foam: Engine savior or historic hoax???
Seafoam is good stuff.

I’ve used it for decades in my vehicles. They say there’s a risk to catalytic converters but I e never had a problem.
If I had a vehicle I suspected the motor had a lot of build up I’d do the gas treatments for a few tanks before I used it in the oil.
And out of abunbance of caution I use it in the oil 300-500 miles before an oil change as the stuff is basically kerosene and will reduce the oil viscosity.
Crankcase treatment is fun lots of smoke for a couple minutes after restarting it.

Don't know about saver - but it tweeks the old engines well. I had a 99 jeep wrangler and would slowly run it through the air intake and clean the shit out of the carb. It also works well as a fuel stabilizer for my 2019 SeaDoo. So... Sea Foam gets.. 5 Stars from me.

I tell you what, I do a ton and I mean ton of vintage and 2 stroke motorcycle restorations. Sea foam is the only carburetor parts cleaner I use. It works great on its own, but fantastic in an ultrasonic cleaner. Great stabilizer, and top engine carbon cleaner also. B12 is also good for cleaning, but not nearly as versatile.

I use it as fuel stabilizer for storage and also use it in the oil 200 miles before oil change.

The carbs on my bike are tough to remove, so it pays to keep them clean with seafoam. I'll run two tanks worth per season and for storage.
