works pretty good on older cars with high miles. Just will probably need to change your spark plugs afterwards.

Go get some GM top engine cleaner. we use it on our toyota's at the shop here. works great. P/N#88861802. but you dont use it in the tank, you use it through the intake with a small vacuum hose. use about half the bottle

shouldnt need the foam unless you car is running like poopoo. and like beer drinkin said if you DO use it just pull your brake boost line off and suck it up through there.
and yes plug change imo thats what i would do after the foam

half the can in the gas & half in the oil right before an oil change seemed to help my 92 4door a bit ... but highly recommend during oil change asap after running it through the oil...

LOL, bad experience?
No, I just take care of the motor so it is not needed.

I've seen/read about 4-5 hydrolocked motors and 2-3 others where carbon was loosen.....and ended up on the exhaust valve seat requiring the head to be removed.

how many miles are on your hoopty? if youre seals are kinda old and you have lots of miles it'll just make your seals worse. i put a quarter up my brake booster, 1/8 in my oil, and 1/8 in my gas on a full tank. do that then let it idle till opperating temp and then go drive it hard. mine smoked A FUCKING LLLOOOOOOOOT! ppl were honking at me yelling "YOUR CARS ON FIRE!" then go home and do an oil change.

mantain it regularly with decent oil, and wind it out every once in a while is what I would suggest.

IMO, seafoam type cleaners = snake oil
