Jackd is right on with this. A close friend who had a 77 280SE wanted to clean his engine this way. He mistakenly poured enough liquid into the intake and it bent a connecting rod. The reason was that liquids, unlike gases do not compress.

In my past automotive life, this procedure was only done when the mixture was assured to be of a very fine mist, a vapor really.

My 2 cents
