jus dont go more than 400 miles after u seafoam. i seafoamed my engine and it made a hell of a difference. its made to break down all of that gunk. after its all broken down u wouldnt wanna continue driving around with all the breakdown so then u get an oil change. honestly i would change after 100mi
sinking steps rising eyes
how did you use this product(sea foam) again? I'd check the sea foam site, but just to be sure how you use it. is this safe for newer car? like my 2007 accord se...afraid would mess up the u2 sensor...

a lot of people use seafoam just before changing over to synthetic or just as a tune-up every 5 or so years. yes, in some cases it can gum up the O2 sensors and require replacement or a thorough cleaning of them, but usually it is alright.
and 1000 miles is a bit long for leaving seafoam in the engine. I would wait to do it until the day before you do your oil change. do the 1/3 1/3 1/3 method of crankcase, gas tank, pcv valve (which car on) and then run the car 50-100 miles at peak performance. make sure to replace filter after wards, as well as pcv valve.

i was thinking of using it to clean my fuel system, but afraid that it might screw up the o2 sensor or fuel is too rich that might discoloration(reddish) of spark plug. thanks for the insight...IkeRay.
