quick question, is it necessary to do an oil change after doing the seafoam treatment? The reason i ask is i just recently had my oil changed but i would like to do the treatment as well but i don't want to replace the oil again. Thats a waste!

Yes. You are going to add 1/3 of the can directly into your crankcase, so it will thin your oil and act a detergent. I would not recommend going over 100 miles on seafoamed oil. However, make sure and run those 100 miles hard to get the seafoam working good.

Even if you do the intake method only, it is still recommended to change you oil after since the seafoam may leak past the rings and into the oil pan.

I'd be pretty leery about runnning a hard 100 miles with Seafoam in the oil. That stuff is like water in viscosity. I forget what the can says but I usually only run it for about 5 to 10 minutes.

If you are really serious about cleaning out the crankcase then get some Auto-RX. That stuff safely works miracles for cleaning out sludge.

Stick with Seafoam if you feel the need to use an internal cleaner, IMO.

If I shared what I know of Auto-RX I'd end up hijacking the thread. Some swear by it, and there are many followers, but there are also trolls pushing the product in various forums. Lets leave it at the fact its an internet only product, purchased only from its own site, and I feel its no different than eBay only products.

Personally I dont use or believe in cleaners poured into the crankcase, and you wont find any OEM or dealers using or such products. I feel they should be used as last resort attempt to fix an ongoing problem. Not to prevent a problem.

Well, I'm new to the Honda coming from a Lexus. I know that Auto-RX has a big following in that community. The Lexus and Toyo engines had a big sludge problem that this did wonders to prevent/fix. I am not a dealer or a troll so I resent the implication.

Being an internet only product doesn't mean jack. Read the 51 pages of glowing recommendations for Wet Paint Glaze in the Detailing forum of this board. It is also internet only.

Follow the hose coming from the side of the brake booster to the intake. This is it. You can unclamp it right at the brake booster or at the intake's end.

Alright.

I just did mine today, and it is GREAT. Give it a few hours, and then you'll feel it. Careful not to pour it in toofast for the vacuum because the car will stall. You will know what I mean. You will hear he engine start to die down, so slow it down. When I sit idle, it doesn't shake. When I gun it at a stoplight, it shifts really smooth from first. (Mine has a hard shift from 1st to 2nd due to previous tranny problems). Well worth it in my opinion.

If you've never taken the vacuum hose out before, then there is probably a hose clamp connected right on the point where the vacuum hose is connected to... this circle thing that is right next to the drivers side (for V6 and I4 for 6th gens.) If any of you guys own a 6th gen and need clarification, send me a PM.

I know I was looking all around teh internet to make sure I had the right hose... cause no one posted a video for the v6, and i was scared the i4 setup was different.

P.S. careful, it kinda smells, the smoke that is. haha.

Maybe I should Seafoam my Odyssey; the CEL is on and diagnostic is that the catalytic converter is shot. I'm sure it won't fix the problem but maybe it's better to blow out all the gunk before I shell out mega-cash for a new cat.

Call Honda corp and see if they will split the cost with you. Worth a shot since its an occasional problem with them. See link below.

Thanks for the link.

I gave them a call and it's officially an 8 year/80K mi issue so I'm well past that. It was worth a try though. I'm guessing that a lot of the "good will" credits and 50/50 deals for repairs may have gone out the window with the lousy economy...
