Seafoam...
if you add this to the crankcase(oil) will it be overflowing cause our car holds about 4 quarts of oil and after adding another pint into it, making it 4&half quarts. will it be a problem?

if I remember right, your not supposed to pour it in the crankcase. your supposed to either pour it into your Intake manifold (i think this way it for top mounted carbs) or for FI cars like the celica you are supposed to either spray it into the Intake manifold (how i'm not sure because of the bottle it comes in) or pour it into the gas tank. check the bottle one more time i could be wrong. it has been a while since I used it on another car (not the celica)

Well then, do what the bottle says! tongue

On a serious note, I've heard of people overfilling their oil by as much as half a liter without serious problem...

i used to use sea foam on my turbo civic every oil change. Idk if it's the same, but I used to have my car suck it up through the brake booster line. That way it gets mostly burned up thus creating all that white smoke that comes outta the exhaust
