using sea foam in the carb you think will stop the piston knock ?
my guess is this is a lubrication issue. the marvel mstery oil is safe and compatible in the oil when used in the amount I previously suggested.
sea foam is a solvent. this is for rapid cleaning and must be used very carefully to avoid engine damage.

- Low oil (it has to be really low)
- Bad Spark plug/spark plug cable
- Knock sensors are bad ( the 5.3L has 2)
- (Specifically to the 5.3L....) the 5.3L has issues with the lifters getting gummed up bad over the life of the engine and they will create a knocking sound when the engine is cold.
Sea foam will help clean the gummed up stuff on the lifters to a certain point. and clean some of gunk on the spark plugs. Knock sensors typically just have to be replaced :-(.
