it's ~$6-7 at your auto parts store and the instructions are on it. Basically, part goes in the fuel tank, part TB or brake booster line, and you can put it in your crank case also, I believe......

man that sux I only got like 2 minutes of smoke out of mine!!!! Any idea why? Im thinking my intake was too hot when I put it in through the pcv and maybe most of it evaporated? How about you guys was your car hot before you put it in you pcv or bb?

If it's still smokin, then you probably pulled it in somewhere that it can hang around. It also means your top end was pretty dirty. Last time I seafoamed mine, it hardly smoked at all (dirty part turned out being the throttle body). You may want to give your's a second treatment fairly soon.

As to the question of what SeaFoam is and how you use it, look here http://www.seafoamsales.com/motorTuneUpTechGas.htm

It can be found at many of the chain parts stores (Auto Zone, Advanced Auto, Carquest, etc.) and it's usually $5 to $6 per can.
