nice. You have an E39? Just curious of the location of the brake booster hose. Under the cabin air filter - driverside?

Seafoam has a high alcohol content, what people have been saying is that it is quiet harmful to rubber pieces in which it comes in contact with. You can't argue with results though.

it saved me a lot of trouble my lifter was probably stuck in some real sticky stuff but it cleaned it right out what ever was causing that sound is far gone now thanks to this stuff really save me the headache form opening it up. or spending big at the dealer that were going to charge me 3 hrs to just open it up to see what was wrong that almost 500$ and they gave me an estimate after i pointed out that many have this problem cost me over tow grand and that was a rough estimate for a new heads when the old one was fine just needed a cleaning. plus most of it is burnt off correct me if i a wrong

That seafoam seems to amazing. I wanna try it now! Ive been having a little bit of a delay in acceleration, as if it doesnt pick up right away. Hopefully this works!

Good to hear that you fixed it. Was the ticking noise just heard when the engine was cold or warm too or both when cold and warm (or was the intensity of the ticking different when cold vs warm)?
