Where should I poor SF if I want to clean the valves?
put it in via the vacum line going to the throttle body
use the vacum line for your car shown on the second page here:

in the oil?
just pour some in oil filler cap (black cap with the oil can on it)
if your gonna put it in through the oil most ppl have success with keeping it in for a few hundred miles. however in older engines seafoam will break up sludge that is keeping oil in, so be warned.

I know the line for the NA vaccum hose, i need to know the steps for putting it in properly, do i turn off the car after the seafoam is in through the throttle body or do i turn if off and turn it back on 15 later?

Be sure to take it for a good long ride after turning it back on.
BEWARE, the smoke show is alarming but comical! Especially that first initial WOT (wide open throttle).....makes james bond look like a wimp.

well, here is yet another success story. I used it in the TB and wow, what a difference and lots of smoke. I did put it in the gas tank, but i just filled up and i am a little ways from needing an oil change. But from what i noticed, smoother idle, smoother acceleration, and much easier to gain speed on the highway, it really worked.

is it necessary to change the oil if i only use it in the tb and gas tank, or can i just wait to change it when it needs to, i still got like 400 miles before i change it and im planning on seafoaming it tomorrow

you can do the seafoam tomorrow and change your oil later...even if you put seafoam in your oil, it is recommended that your drive for 1000miles before changing the oil.

Question: When it's running through my gas tank, will it smoke a bit coming out? My friends have said they've seen a little bit of dark smoke coming out when I get on the throttle. It's never happened before so I'm hoping its just the seafoam.

Dark Smoke = Rich. That's what happens when i get on it.

Who knows, the seafoam may have clogged up your O2 a tad. Just drive it on the highway a bunch and let it burn off over time. If not, new O2 time...

I LOVE SEAFOAM just did it last night. BTW was anyone else able to blow smoke rings with the smoke. My car is alive once again it feels like she's brand new not nothing like a car with 137k under her belt. I'll start to spread the gossple of SEAFOAM now.

Yep. I talked to a guy at Seafoam about it and thats what he said. Do you actually have to buy a new o2 sensor or is it cleanable?
