I found was on ebay http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie ... :IT&ih=010

I will go to Crappy Tire they can order all kinds of stuff or Maybe NAPA or Lordco

Saw this on Truck U Image

Love 3M products but will go this Saterday to see where I can find it because the ebay seller ships Via UPS and we all know UPS are thieves and charge Brokerage fees...

So far no luck online they all ship UPS Image

Will keep hunting Image Let me know if Lordco has it in Edmonton

I used Seafoam on my old Kia Sportage last year. It smoked like crazy for a minute or three, then the next day the valves clacking settled down to almost zero.

I did the trick with the power brake hose stuck in the can until the engine stalled, about three-four seconds, then let it sit for about a half hour before trying to start it. When I did, it looked like I was fogging for mosquitoes, which I'm sure annoyed the neighbors no end. It ran terrible for about six blocks, then threw a CEL and stalled. I cycled power to the ECU by removing the main fuse and reinstalling it. After that, it ran fine. My gas mileage improved and the valves quieted considerably, which made me think that they were sticking badly. I'd been using Chevron gas for months and the valve noise got steadily worse until the Seafoam treatment. No more Chevron for me!

i to use seafoam i just used it in my fuel and for the last 300miles (480km) of my oil and it makes a big difference im going to use it in my intake as well just need to find the time to do it. i like seafoam much better and its also cheaper. 2 bottels of seafoam should get the job done i only used one for my oil and fuel.

It seems they (3M) don't have carbon cleaner?

Check this link http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Very-Lub ... 0207932870

Xado Anti Carbon is quite popular in my country and I have never heard any complaints from a few forums. What it does, it cleans carbon deposit in combustion chamber. They suggest using this product every 25.000km, one tube per cylinder. I haven't tried it yet, but I will once my cars reached 25,000km. Any one here tried it?
