    It's not really only $18 if you plan on replacing both O2 sensors because you used it now is it ???

    Those ain't cheap. :eek: I haven't used my Sea Foam yet,
    but I will when it comes time. I've heard it's the shiznit.

    The O2 sensors are about $15 a pop and I haven't replaced them yet. I don't notice any negative effects so they're probably no worse than before, but I bought them so I might as well install them. AFAIK, they've never been changed and now is as good a time as ever.

    Stuff works great, one of our better sellers here in the parts store I work in, Sell a lot of the regular Sea Foam, not too much on the Deep Creep, Sell a lot of Trans Tune too. Stuff works in about anything you can think of for your car.

    Yeah, Seafoam's some good stuff.
    I used it in my 150k mile LT1 Impala, sucked it in the booster hose until it died, let it set about 20 minutes then went down the highway. Damn car left a smoke screen for about 15 minutes after I left the house, then it smoothed out and ran like new.
    I'm sold on the stuff.
    I talked a buddy into trying it in his wife's Mazda that was running rough with clattering valves, it fixed every drivability problem that car had.

    Hey can you use this stuff every other 1000 miles or what? Because I only put a little in there, not alot. Should I suck the stuff up with my brake booster line too?

    I don't think you need to do it every 1K. Most people use the brake booster hose as an easy way to get the fluid into the intake. If you've got EFI you usually cannot pour it in. If you have a carb it is simple because you can.
    The directions don't tell you to use much, but the instructions I have gotten from other people said to use most of the can, slowly pouring it in, and then to dump the rest of the can in fast enough to stall the engine. Then let it sit 20 minutes before starting it back up and smoking out the neighborhood.
    If you got good results off the little bit you used and you'd like to repeat it every month or so, then go for it. Let us know what your results are. You might not see a change after your first application, but it might not lose performance again, or it might continue to get better as time goes on.
