Talking Pass My smog today with Seafoam

I took the Legend in last week for a Smog test and she failed like a Race Horse with 3 legs.


Ran some seafoam thru the booster line today and let it sit for about 30mins before I drove her on the freeway at WOT smoked like a SOB. Went back for my re-test and Passed with my readings way lower then the first test.


I'm just so glad to pass that I had to write about it

Pico- that is an amazing drop in readings! I can't believe your readings dropped down that much from the Seafoam. Does the car run any better?
Bushido- PPM=Parts per Million

lets play a game, who has the lowest PPM.
for 15 mph i got 10, for 25 mph i got 2.
the mechanic ask me what i did to it, i said nothing, just changed my oil every 1000 miles, and i used gunk motor flush and cd-2 oil detergent for 8 years.
yeah i am bored, lol. haha.

CO2 = carbon dioxide, CO = carbon monoxide (deadly stuff)
O2 = Oxygen
NO = oxides of nitrogen
HC = leftover, unburned hydrocarbons, basically the amt of unspent fuel your car is shooting into the air.

PPM = parts per million

Yeah I couldnt believe myself on how much the readings dropped neither could the tech at the smog shop.
I've noticed alot more better acceleration pick-up since I seafoamed the car.

thats what i was thinking, all of the time i paid my registration, i always paid a few weeks in advance or a few days.
i think its because the place was packed ass hell, and she dont want me to be there until the very last day. i am going to another one tomorrow in another city.
she also said that , i could of just pay by mail, uh, dont she knows that i got less then 3 days to renew it, by the time it got to sacramento, and all of the sorting out. it will always be late. yeah , she was just being a pain in the ass.

seafoam can be sucked in through most any vacuum line, brake booster is usually the best choice... you can also go with the pcv valve depending on the car... use half through the line the other half of the can into the crank case... the amount of smoke it will produce is disturbing... but your car will go from running like an old lady with a limp to running like a crack head that just stole your VCR. Also its a good idea to change your oil within a day or two of doing a seafoam treatment... the GUNK motor flush stuff is pretty much kerosene.. i'd stay away from that.

Pico, that is a very dramatic improvement in the NOx emissions. I think high NOx is a sign of a problem with the catalytic converter. I'm going to guess that you had an ineffective cat due to carbon deposits in it. Using the seafoam may have cleaned all that mess out of the cat. Just a theory. Anyone know for sure?
