Where can I get Seafoam or something comparable?

Hi,

I have been reading numerous threads about this product called Seafoam which apparently works wonders on cars. However, I went to NAPA today and they don't carry the stuff. I also went to PartSource and Canadian Tire.

Does anyone know where I can get this product or something comparable in Canada?

Thanks,
Tom

According to another canadian forum, a place in toronto called CarQuest might have it in stock. You can always head over to a GM dealership and ask to buy their Top Engine Cleaner as it's supposed to be extremely similar.

Seafoam is by far the best and yes it is only availible at Carquest! Carquest is similar to UAP/Napa or a place like that they are a automotive parts supplier open to jobbers and the public. i suggest you read a DIY from another forum so you know what to expect there is a hell of alot of smoke that comes out of the exhaust and you must take the car for a drive to get rid of it.

I definately did my research, that's why I want it. I heard it's great.

Do you think that they can ship the stuff out to me?

What is a comparable product that I can get at either Canadian Tire, Part Source, NAPA? I was really suprised that no one carries it here.....hmmm business idea!!!

I still want the Seafoam but if I can't then I would want something comparable.

I am going to head down to Calgary in a couple of weeks and pick the stuff up from NAPA. I will update when I get it done.

If anybody else has done it or is going to do it soon, please post your experiences! The more info the better!

I went to Calgary this week and NAPA did not have any Seafoam. It looks like I will order somewhere online.
