      Hey Scotty, At O'Reilly's, they recommended that I used Seafoam to clean the engine oil system, since I wasn't able to do oil change for almost a year, when the drain plug got stuck. At least I didn't drive the vehicle much.

      I have alfa turbo diesel and after removing the turbo tube I saw a lot of carbon o the inside of intake manifold. My question is, can a carbon cleaner clean that or this is manifold removal job?

                                        The part about his wife's Camry reminds me of the old Bill Cosby album 200 mph, where the mechanic told Bill he needed to take his Ferrari out on the expressway and "blow the gunk out" and when Bill did that a cop pulled him over immediately and didn't believe him when he told the cop he was just blowing the gunk out. ;0 Like Scotty says about the newer fuels burning cleaner you have to remember Bill Cosby put that album out in the 60's.

                                                  I have a motorcycle that is a high speed bike so I really don't get much opportunity to open it up, it does 90 mph in first gear so it would gunk up the intake ports, valves and throttle bodies to the point that I could barely turn the throttle. So after using intake cleaner a few times which I didn't like because I knew it was just washing down past the piston rings and going into the oil. I started using Seafoam additive in the gas every time I fill it and it has cured that problem. I swear by that stuff.
