Not at all, though you'll need two people. Just have one person go to a caliper, put one end of a vinyl hose on the bleeder plug and the other into a container. Then pump the brakes a few times, hold the pedal down, and have the other person open the bleeder valve to drain out the fluid. Close the plug, release the pedal, and repeat till the fluid is clean and bubble free. You'll want to start from the caliper furthest from the driver and work your way forward.

Same process with the clutch, though the bleeder plug is in the engine bay.

Seafoam is a cleaner made of petroleum. You just pour it in through the PCV line into the throttle body to clean out the intake system, pour it into the oil to clean out the oil system, and pour it into the gas tank to clean out the fuel system. I've heard nothing but good reviews about it, and some people have even gained considerable gas mileage (EasyC for one) after using it.

You just pour it in with the oil you already have. It frees up all the sludge and deposits that have formed.

For bleeding your brakes you can do it alone with a kit they have in auto zone. Not hard so even if you have no friends you can do it. As for sea foam in your oil, do it right beofre a oil change. You dont want that stuff in your oil for daily driving.

Hey Blue,
Which wheels would you do on a GT(DRUMS)? Rear Pas, Rear Dr, Front Pas, Front Dr. in this order.

For the Seafoam.. Is it best to buy 1 can and divide 1/3 oil, 1/3 gas, 1/3 intake? For the intake which hose on the throttle body? I am not sure which one is the PCV hose and how did you get it in there? Would you jsut turn your car on unplug PCV hose and put it into the seafoam and let the vaccum suck it up? For the oil you just for it in where you do the oil?

Thanks...

The only reason I can think of that you'd want to put it in before an oil change is it could fill up your filter pretty quickly with all the gunk it loosens up. Seafoam is made of pure petroleum, and is 100% safe to use, unlike the average solvent cleaner.

Yup, same as with discs all around.

I believe there are measuring instructions on the bottle. If not, they're on Seafoam's site:

Yup, it goes into the hose on top of the throttle body. Just yank the hose off from the valve cover while the car is running and slowly pour in the Seafoam.

Yup.
