I replaced the vacuum line from SAP to solenoid and code went away! It goes from SAP pump towards back of engine - probably a 4 foot long hose.

It 100% safe right?
I did follow the YouTube gentleman, his video explained how possible engine becomes hydrolocked and theorized that it is safe by doing like your post mentioned.

Hi - I am not sure what problem you are trying to fix. My problem was the check engine light was on and it threw a code (forgot exactly the code right now) but I fixed it by replacing the vacuum line from SAP to solenoid and code went away! It goes from SAP pump towards back of engine - probably a 4 foot long hose.
I did pour seafoam into the check valve (next to the SAP) thinking I had a problem with the valve but this was not the problem.
