    will seafoam find vacuum leaks??

    a guy from the parts store told me that seafoam will find a vacuum leak. is this true? i have a 98 ss that has been studdering real bad unless i have the peddle all the way down and someone else on here had the same problem and found it out to be a vacuum leak so im starting to think its that. i put a bbk intake on and reused the old gaskets so i thought maybe it was leakin around manifold. i sprayed some carb cleaner around the intake to see if the idle picked up to find a leak but no luck.

    you had issues with the pcv system correct? How do you have it set up now? Check those hoses too for leaks.

    ya i had to redo the pcv myself. well what i had to do is basically put 2 pcv valves in the system. one is in the drivers side valve cover bc my valve covers i bought didnt have the connection on the drivers side..just a hole so i put a pcv valve and it fits good and snug. then i ran the 2 3/8 line to a T fitting and then ran it to another pcv valve before going into the throttle body
