Wow! Seafoam must be potent stuff, otherwise you`d need courage and optimism to attempt those feats in an XJS. Maybe the straight six,not a V12 engine, helps too.

I do use stabil in anything that will sit for much time. But the sea foam on the Dart was dramatic. It ran ok but had at least one ticking lifter and burned oil. Which I assumed was stuck rings because it is a low mile engine. I changed the oil, added sea foam to the oil, also in the fuel, then fogged the engine with the aerosol. Let it sit for overnight. Fire it back up, let it smoke and drove about 100 miles. Changed oil and it was black as ink. No more burning oil, no more ticking lifters. Click image for larger version

Al - Photos, Please!! Many of us boat buffs let the buff roll over to classic autos. 94 Jag XJS is classic for sure!

Exactly my first thought when reading Al's post...

There are very few products with such universally high scores on reviews. 4.5 to 4.7 on all sites from Amazon to Walmart to Advanced Auto. Even the bad reviews aren't really bad.

Bought an old Mercedes that had a million little problems but ran great. Used SeaFoam cleaner on everything from gummed up auto-door locks to the one windshield wiper gearing that was also gummed up and non-functional. It was an awesome car! Best of all my wife thought I was a magician! Ha ha
