as above. did a quick search on the forum and nothing. saw a tutorial on youtube done to the 2zz celica thought it might be a good thing to do since my cars been thru a fair bit of kms. or should i just stick to engine flush every 30k.

The guys over in the States swear by that. You tend to see it a bit on their Toyota Forums.

Personally, I would never use such a thing after seeing how it works, but that's more of a personal thing.

For fuel treatment alone i.would.just use a coupled shock.treatments.of Fuel Doctor, then standard.doses per tank from there on in.

TB cleaners like the Nulon .have worked out for me (Nulon Is teflon safe) so that makes the Seafoam deep creep redundant.

Can't comment on the direct application to the engine or the 'oil flush' though. I would be interested in the former but not at all in the latter.

There was a similar product being used here a short while ago to clean out the intake manifolds of turbo diesels... up until a few engines started blowing up, and the supplier withdrew all of it from the market.

... at least they paid for the repairs

Nulon still make a similar product:

Mighty tempted to see how it goes.

Subaru Upper Engine Cleaner - available from any Subaru dealership...

As a warning though, these sort of products have a nasty habit on older engines of INCREASING oil consumption and blow-by because they clean out deposits which were actually helping to seal in the first place due to engine wear over time. Newer cars with less wear but still with carbon deposits are more likely to benefit.
