Seafoam is around 7.00 dollars at NAPA and you pour it down the throttle body or use a vacuum line to suck it up into the engine. Thats about as far as my knowledge goes with seafoam.

joejeep is right, except you can get it at just about any parts store. You put it in either your throttle body, brake booster vacume line, oil, gas, or whatever you want to clean. if its going in your motor, let it set for bout an hour, and start it up. Depending on how dirty your engine is, give it 2 or 3 doses.
