if you do it once, nothing.

if you do it 3 times, the oil.

if you let it idle and not keep it above 1500rpm and dont go run it hard after the smoke dies down, youll be doing plugs and maybe o2 sensors too

So basically make sure that stuff is clear and out of the engine and doesn't sit in there for too long.

Awesome. I think I might finally do this instead of Seafoaming it.

Justin, order up a bottle. We'll do it next time I'm up there.

What are you expecting the PM-3 to do, help with hp??? Just curious cause from how you were talkin you were expecting power difference.... Chevy recommend me doing it cause of a motor noise which was a carbon build up, noise went away but no power difference...

Yeah I was expecting to get 20 horsepower from it


kidding lol, naw I was hoping to clean the engine of some built up carbon, I figured with doing that, plugs, wires and fuel filter my mileage might bump back up to decent range. Its just regular maintenance that I needed to do thats all

So just put it in your truck and run it like a raped ape.

Sounds good to me.

Yup, put in 1/2 a can (8 oz) let it sit for an hour. Then put in the rest and go run it for 2-3 miles around 3500+ rpms. This kind of funnel makes it super easy, fits over the end of the vac hose tightely and lets you see how much your letting in. on/off valve and everything, I got it for a couple bucks at walmart

Yeah worked great for me. Smoked just as much as when I first put it in, trucks running super smooth now, should stay that way for a while now.
