Seafoam saved my M20's life!

For the past 4 months or so I've been trying to troubleshoot my car. In the process I have spent hundreds of dollars are parts that I, and many other people, thought would fix my problem. One thing that I thought could be the problem but I didnt replace was faulty injectors. After searching through the internet I found numerous accounts of this stuff called Seafoam. Skeptical...yes I am! But I figured 8 bucks is alot cheaper than 150 for professional injector cleaning. So I put 1/3 in gas tank, 1/3 in engine, and 1/3 through the vacuum hose going out of the FPR. Started it up and my idle straightened out, took it for a 30 minute ride and FINALLY!!!!!! NO ENGINE POWER CUT-OFF!!!!!

I would SERIOUSLY recommend that ANYONE that has a high mileage car needs to go buy a 16 oz bottle of Seafoam at their local car parts dealer and do exactly what I did! This $8 can may have saved my BMW from a very costly garage visit.

So don't be dumb! Buy some SEAFOAM!!!!

SEAFOAM is great! I put it in my 86 325es with 170,000 miles on it. Its great for high mileage cars, and safe. In my owners manual it says, do not add additives to the engine, but seafoam is not a chemical. You can put it in ANY engine, gas or diesel, 2 or 4 cycle engine, put it in the oil (crankcase), in the gas tank, and the vacuum hoses! I didnt think about it until I read this, thanks for the tip 325isBMW1988!!
