Personally I find things that say they do more than one thing, Just plain sh*te and don't really trust them.

IF I were to want to clean the engine I would probably use good old redex and an engine flush before changing the oil.

All that smoke could be is the seafoam crap in there getting burnt by the engine anyway???

I wouldn't put this within 10ft of my engine.

I have done a FULL De-coke on an engine. Ford DOHC and TBH the residue on the internals would never have been cleaned by anything short of a handful of tiny BB's. There is not a chemical made that can clean carbon depsits from the internals without causing some kind of damage. It might clean loose stuff but that will come off eventually anyway. AND! if there is anything strong enough to clean it then it will most probably damage the surface of the pistons, valves, bores, conrods, crank end bearings, cam shafts. the lot. not to mention the rubber seals. Be careful. Be very careful.

Nah. Not for me.

haha, i think i'll just try it in one of the less drastic ways, drop some in my oil right before my oil change

they also say it can be poured into the gas tank to clean the fuel system, but i'm affraid of detonation from it contaminating the fuel, so i dont think i'll be trying that method.

If you have a highly tuned jap car the engine dont even like normal 95-96 ron fuel. My 300zx runs like crap on anything less than super 98 ron and above. So putting something like that in the fuel is a bit of a chance to take. IMO.

which is why i said that i'm not putting it in my fuel.

i cant see it hurting if i pour some in my oil and change out the oil just shortly after

At the end of the day its your car and you can do whatever you feel is best. But I think the responses here aint having a dig at you but warning you to the possible damage you could do mate.:doh:

Most reputable fuels use various sorts of exotic detergents to clean your engine anyway, I know V-Power does, so personally I'm happy to leave it at that.
If there is any doubt, there's no doubt that I don't want it in my engine.
