    I wonder if I should do the seafoam first, since people can get that anywhere and it's cheap? I have to figure out a cheap and easy delivery method.

    Seafoam is an old product. Even if it is said to be effective in many applications I doubt it comes near dedicated products from BG.

    I used the BG ISC on the wifes Volvo a few days ago. It is a turbo and they are well known to have issues with the throttle body. The treatment didn't fixed the main problem, which is it is very difficult to start, weak and can stop when it wants. But this time I could see that the treatment was very effektive. The TB and the blade looked like new when I checked, no signs of carbon whatsover. It seems there may be another fault in the TB, the board which provides TPS information is cracked.

This caused to much back pressure so the air just entered the can and did not pump out fluid via the nozzle. The restriction in the #32 N2O nozzle is lower and this nozzle worked well. There is a nozzle included with the fluid gun, which I guess can be used, but the N2O nozzle is better since it directs the fluid downstream.


    just one question. where did you get the fluid gun??? im having trouble finding one on the internet

    I had my intake ports cleaned a couple of weeks ago at 27,000 miles. Spoke to my mechanic and he advised every 25,000 as well as doing the plugs at the same interval. I do all routine maint. at half the BMW recommended intervals.

    Really OT by just some follow up info. The TB was replaced as a preventive action but the crack on the PC board didn't caused the running problem. After turning every stone under the hood; checked O2 sensor, MAF-sensor, fuel pressure, vacuum, opened the ECU and looked for bad solderings, cleaned the oil trap, checked injectors, coils, plugs, relays, checked for fault codes, ignition advance, replaced fuel filter etc. etc. I came to the conclusion; there is no fault with the engine even though it runs like $#@!

    It showed up the pump at the gas station was faulty during a day a couple of weeks ago and the fuel contained 30% diesel Click here to enlarge This amount of diesel in fuel does not smell or look like diesel so it was almost impossible to discover. The car runs fine now and has got the tank cleaned and filled up. With a can of BG 44K as well, which even may be of real need this time Click here to enlarge The gas station owner will get a fat bill for the time I've spent on searching for the fault, parts and chemicals. About 1 grand in total.

    I'm so totally tired of Volvo at the moment (even it it it was a fuel fault) that the other Volvo turbo that is used for winter driving instead of the 335 will be discarded and I've now bought a X3 to replace it.
