Quick Tip-Throttle Cleaning - EricTheCarGuy
This one goes out to BowlingBallOut who posted a question about a sticky
throttle on his Saturn. It was a great question so I decided to make this
video in response to it. There are many different configurations of
throttle assemblies but for the most part if you have a throttle that is
sticking you might be able to fix it using the procedures in this video. I
am aware you may not able to purchase spray throttle cleaner in some states
now but I'm sure they have some alternative available at your local parts

Sea foam engine cleaner in a Subaru WRX
A friend of mine asked me to tape him putting Sea Foam engine cleaner in
his 2004 Subaru WRX. I had to laugh because a neighbour walked over to ask
if he blew his turbo! Lot's of smoke
that's for sure!
How Not To SeaFoam(TM) Your Car
Why do people think I'm redlining the engine? The highest it gets to is
3krpm, less than half way to redline. It sat at 4krpm at 70MPH on the
highway. Seafoam, when used correctly does wonders to clean out an engine.
This is not a reaction video, the engine does not explode or seize.
Me and my buddy having a SeaFoam(TM) party and he uses the wrong tube...
the entire $12 can drains through his air filter and onto the ground lol.
How to Seafoam your vehicle (Also called Top Engine Clean)
This is a carbon deposit cleaner that when used can help eliminate the
carbon deposits that build up in the top end of your engine block. I
perform this about every 15,000 miles on my own vehicle.
Steps to seafoaming:
1. Bring your vehicle up to normal operation temperature
2. Separate seafoam canister into 3 equal parts (one will be for sucking
through a pvc line or brakeBooster
line, one for gas tank, and one for putting in the oil filler cap)
3. Locate the PVC valve that runs through the intake manifold, for this is
where you will initially suck 1/3 of the seafoam canister through.
(If PVC is non accessible then you can use your brake Booster line in the same manner.)
4. Once engine is at normal operational temperature, have another person
sit in the drive seat and bring the engine RPM up to around 1500.
5. Pull your PVC off (or brake Booster line) and start slowly sucking 1/3 of
the seafoam in through either of these locations. Be cautious & steady
handed, you don't want to stall the engine out.
6. Once you've sucked all of the 1/3 portion up turn the engine off &
replace pvc or brake Booster to its
7. Once engine is off, unscrew your Oil Filler cap & pour 1/3 of the
seafoam in as if it were oil.
8. Unscrew gas cap and put the remaining 1/3 seafoam in.
9. Leave the car alone for 15 minutes.
10. Come back to the car and start it up, let it idle for about 10-15
seconds and then BRING ENGINE RPMS TO A STEADY 2000-3000RPM for no more
than a couple minutes.
(major revving or fluctuation can knock carbon deposits loose so please
keep a steady foot)
11. Once this is complete, take your car for a 10-15 mile drive, while
doing so make sure to bring the engine through its total rev band spectrum
to make sure all the carbon deposits have been cleaned out.
12. Once the drive is complete, bring the car back home.
13. CHANGE YOUR OIL & FILTER & SPARKPLUGS WITH KNOWN GOOD OEM SPEC PARTS.
(The reasoning behind this is that the seafoam lowers the viscosity of your
oil, thus weakening its ability to control wear on your engines major
mating surfaces and your plugs get buggered up with carbon after this
tuneup due to the carbon coming loose during the tuneup.. So an Oil/Filter
change & Spark Plugs are a must after seafoaming is complete
14. Tune Up is complete!
DIY: Clean Fuel Injectors, Get Better MPG, Get More Horsepower with Seafoam
In this video tutorial, we show how to clean out your fuel injectors, get
better mileage and more horse power using Seafoam. This is a fairly safe
method, but we are not responsible for any harm done to your car.
To clean your fuel injectors, you want to add half a can to a full can of
Sea Foam into your gas tank after performing this procedure.

Subaru WRX EJ205 Rebuild Part 1
Anthony @ DIYautotech taking you on a Multi-Video Series of how to rebuild
a factory subaru impreza wrx from top to bottom.
This video features accessory removal & tricks and tips on custom ways to
remove certain parts WITHOUT the use of EXPENSIVE factory subaru tools.
How To Seafoam Your Vehicle
2 Can of Seafoam & 1 Can of Deep Creep - 1 can goes into your fuel tank and
half of the other one goes into your oil and the other half goes through
the brake Booster line. The Deep
Creep is sprayed through the throttle body. Let the vehicle sit 15-20
mins. and start up and watch the smoke show. If you have no smoke your
vehicle didn't have any carbon build up to clean off.
This was me seafoaming my truck,1990 Ford F-150 xlt lariat 4x4, though it
went well, it backfired and blew the muffler off and caused a ticking
valve, guess I got a little carried away revving it up, nothing a muffler
clamp and a bottle of lucas couldnt fix though
