1998 SL2
Default MMO soak + seafoam + steam clean

is it ok to do all 3 of these at the same time? wanting to pour the MMO in the spark plug holes, seafoam where the oil goes, and do a steam clean and then change the oil in about 100 miles...is it ok to do all 3 at once?

...
98 SL2
5th gear swap- .643 gear
245,000 miles
215/45 17"
I burn about a quart about every 1500 miles.

If it ain't broke, fix it some more.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Don't put Seafoam in the crankcase; it's too thin. A little in the fuel tank _might_ help with the injectors, but Techron would be better.

You can't exactly do the MMO soak and the steam clean at the same time, because the MMO soak is an engine-off procedure and the steam clean is engine-running. But you could do the steam clean right after the MMO soak; wouldn't make any difference either way.

I agree with madpogue. I put a little seafoam in the oil thinking it woul clean out some gunk and ended up spinning a rod. Just use a good oil and change it often enough.
