I thought maybe SeaFoam would help but its there still, very faint.. Any ideas?
My car has done that for years, usually I notice it in third gear, when the engine has been on only a very short while. I have wondered if it is something with the fuel pressure related, but the phenomenon never changes shape or frequency, so I don't worry about it.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
