Yea a mechanic friend of mine said to get a 2-3 gallon jug fill it with water and connecta very tiny tiny hose from that to the pcv line using a t fitting.. So the intake will suck it up.. Then go on the freeway and drive it for like 150-200 miles and that will steam clean the engine

Does this make sense ?

you'd need a very tiny line to not quench the combustion too badly while driving.
most people do it the same way we do seafoam, just slower.
