That's why I use chevron 92 octane fuel it has detergents to clean my car. I noticed a difference between the 85 it vapor locks.

What about using a toner? If you set the toon to 89 or 91 octane, should you use that?

Thanx scotty. I ended up seafoaming my engine and somehow my mechanic said i need a new headgasket :/ .
SnoopyDoofy (7 дней назад)
If I see a piston that clean in an engine which has been run, I'm betting on a blown head gasket. Shameful attempt Scotty.

has anyone noticed that the the engine is a 16 valve and has 4 valve reliefs on the piston but he shows a pic of a piston with only 2 valve reliefs

That seafoam product is very expensive when you're on fixed income. This is something that everyone always has money for. Perhaps we ought to force change and get price regulators to start lowering the prices on stuff like this

Ali Annan (11 дней назад)
Scotty, what you do is great but you don't need to shout.
John D (11 дней назад)
Is it possible to use too much of these products. I try to use a can of Chemtool or Techtron cleaner every 500 miles or so. I don't drive my cars that often, maybe 5000 miles a year. So its not that expensive to add a can once a month.
otoot kol (13 дней назад)
Gasoline already have cleaning agents
Joe Jordan (13 дней назад)
I don't use any of that stuff every so often I take it to a mechanic who uses BG and I have a professionally clean that seems to work a lot lot better it cost a little money but it cost the same amount of money if I would have put those cans of snow work stuff in your engine

Sweet Cobra! Can we see more of it?
EliteGaming (14 дней назад)
this is really upsetting. they're not even the same pistons... look at the gloves made for the valves.. ones a 2 valve cylinder, ones a 4 valve. you can also see a difference on the outer edge of the piston.
Sven Schwingel (15 дней назад)
Sorry to say, but there is no magical fuel ingredient that will clean carbon buildup in a poorly-designed engine from within. Plus, quality fuels already contain additives to take care of that as best as possible. It's a like with rim cleaner: it never gets rid of baked-in brake dust without manual labor like advertised. Bottomline: if you want to keep your engine as clean as possible, avoid excessively doing short trips, bumper-to-bumper commute and use quality fuel. And avoid running gasoline direct injectors from Volkswagen.

Josue Morales (18 дней назад)
Scotty, how are you? Please Sir, I really need your help. My name is Josue, I have very serious problem with carbon deposits, fuma and everything in my Lancer DE 2008 motor. The problem was cause because of the first owner of the car, he doesn't care about oil change, cleaning the system or anything. And know the car have a very thick layer of carbon and gum in all the internals. I'm planing to use Gamout PEA multisystem cleaner un the gas tank, and in the same time, pour a bottle of seafoam in the oil, then change the oil and oil filtre, and then refill the oil again with a fresh one and a new filter and add a bottle of Oil Motor flush from Gunk. Then dump that oil and use the new Penzoil High Millage full synthetic oil with Pureplus technology with the original Mitsubishi Lancer oil filter. Please let me know what can I do, if the process I thinking of doing is going to help ir not? Take care Scotty! Thank you!

This is an ad... Dont use this snake oil crap
1066gaz (22 дня назад)
Redex petrol/injector cleaner and STP fuel injector cleaner is excellent also from UK. Used them for decades with superb results. I had a car once with carbon build up an inch thick on the pistons due to having a valve stem oil leak for a long period of time. I poured some down the bores and the rest in the fuel tank and it got rid of it all with a full tank of petrol with the added additive.
Mordy S (22 дня назад)
I use 3.5oz of acetone per 10 gallons of gasoline. Makes idle smoother, gives slightly petter mpg, and supposedly just lowers the tension of gasoline so it cleans injectors.
Md Badal Miah (22 дня назад)

Terry Newton (26 дней назад)
Yeah but do we really need clean engines? Also I live in Australia and our engine oils have detergent additives for this very purpose. I believe that the only thing this product cleans out is our wallets.
Heath Bauerle (27 дней назад)
Do you recommend Seafoam?

That Gumout stuff (with the PEA) actually works. I've run it through two different modern cars. One car I ran it through two tanks of fuel and the other through three tanks of fuel. I can tell a difference in idling, acceleration, and power. It seems to clean things up. After three tanks on my current daily driver, the engine is running better than when I first got the car a few years back. On the other car, after just one tank, the idle became a lot smoother. I like the stuff so much I will continue using it unless I find a legitimate reason to stop using it. It costs about $10 where I live and one can does two tanks, so $5 extra dollars a month (about how long it takes me to run through a ten gallon tank) is well worth it for the better performance.

How come ethenol rots 2 cycle fuel lines but yet doesn't harm fuel injection systems? Why don't they remove ethanal if it rots metal?

My '02 F-150 has nearly 450,000 miles and I put sea-foam in it pretty regular,flushed the transmission every 100,000 and never had a problem with it,still has original water pump because I flushed the coolant too.

Looks like Scotty is cheating. The dirty piston did NOT have a valve cutout and the cleaned piston DID. Shame on you Scotty for selling out to Gumout. How much did they pay you to cheat your viewers?💵💲💲💵👌😲
Craig Kaschan (1 месяц назад)
Hi Scotty I’ve always been sceptical of those additives but you have made me feel better as I regularly use them. I don’t believe in spending a lot of money on new cars. I never pay more than a few grand and I manage to find good low klm cars. I do my own repairs keep oil changes up to them and I get 5 to 10 years out of them. I only found your channel recently because I’ve only just started watching YouTube ( computer illiterate) You have helped me out a few times confirming what I thought. Thank you and greetings from Australia.

Hi Mr Scott. Please advise, I av Nissan Qashqai 1.5 diesel. Sometimes engine light comes on and car goes out of turbo boost. I can feel it that the car has less power. Error code is Turbo Charger disfunction. Can I use turbo cleaning sprays available on ebay and as some vidoes suggest to spray it through Air filter hose ? Does they really works ?

seafoam or any of these other cleaners, they really don't work. so many vids on YouTube showing the proof that any cleaning is very minimal. Heck, you would be just as good going old school and pouring or spraying water down the intake.
