I have used it in my 06 GT and my motorcycles, I think it does a great job. Have used it in other cars I have owned and suggested it to other folks. No complaints. As faym08 mentioned it is not a cure-all if there are other problems. If it is just a buildup of crud in the intake tract it will clean it out.

Agreed with the above. Not the cure of all but I used it in my 01 when it hit 90k just to see if it'd clean some crud out..so I sprayed it inside the throttle body let it sit for a min, started it up and ran rough and blew white smoke like it says. Cleared up and seemed to run stronger than before..who knows if it was all in my head but sure seemed too run stronger

It is a really good product probably one of the best fuel system cleaners in your average auto parts store buuttt faym 08 is right most people want a mystery cure for their motor and there isn't one. Best advice use it more then once if you are going to go with any motor cleanser.

Ive run it in my oil just fine. You just.got to make sure you change your oil in a day or two after you put it in. Or in about 75 miles. Which ever comes first.

I agree with black02. I wouldn't pour it in the oil, :no but I use this product in my gas tank (full tank works best). I notice a difference when I use it. My car runs smoother when I use it. Though I am due for a major oil change, I would use the product every oil change, or once every two or three months, depending on how you drive and how much miles you add to your car. :exactly

I was thinking of picking up a can of it for my car which is about 74k miles. How does it work with cleaning via the intake?

if you really wanna clean out the engine like oil passage wise, put a small amount, maybe 1/2 quart, of trans fluid in you engine and run it for 30 mins, then change your oil. Transmission fluid has stronger detergents in it and cleans better. but like I said no longer than 30 minutes or it will start messing stuff up. you car will smoke really bad too.
