Someone actually posted this on the Volvo board! said:
Ok, I am normally a 240 person and I was TRYING to do the trick where you run water in through the intake via a vaccum hose and it cleans out carbon from inside the engine.

So I try this on an 850 whiteblock, I use the vaccum port on the right of the intake manifold where there are two ports, I use the top one. I start the engine and it sucks the entire jar of water in in about 2 seconds, klunks, and dies.

The engine will not even turn over now, does anyone have any idea how much damage I have done and what it will take to fix it?

This trick always worked perfect on redblocks, I don't know if it just doesn't work on whiteblocks or I really pickes the wrong vaccum port.
("Whiteblocks' are the aluminum alloy block Volvo engines introduced 1993, "redbocks" are the iron block motors Volvo introduced around the Beginning of Time.)

That is the same way to use SeaFoam to clean cylinder heads BUT you suck up a little at a time - total of 8 ounces.

With Hondas, you'd have blown something or broke something already. It's not "water friendly" especially with the high compression.
