    Default Seafoam Really Works

    Me and my brother in law both seafoamed our trucks tonight. He has a Toyota tocoma with 95000 miles. I only have 42600. You could definitely tell the difference. His truck put out more smoke than mine but on both of ours you could tell there was improvement. I had a sparatic skip at idle and it is now gone and he says his truck is running much better. I'm sold on this product and recommend it to everyone.

    Thanks for posting this, I have my two cans sitting on my work bench ready for the summer time. I am glad to hear that it fixed your idle, because that is one of the problems mine is having. Thanks for the vote of confidence in what seems like a really cool product, SEA FOAM don't let me down now

    I took my truck up the high way this morning and I could notice better throttle response. I am thoroughly convinced that this stuff cleaned loads of crap out of the engine. I followed the thread on how to use seafoam. Seafoam says to use a can in the crank, a can in the gas tank and a can into the intake. I used a 1/3 of a can for each as was posted in the thread. I believe it was enough to get out the junk. Next time I do it I will probably put a whole can in the gas tank and half a can in the other 2 places. I will be seafoaming my wifes minivan today.

    That's why I usually recommend it for everyone with issues with the way thier truck runs. That stuff is GOLD

    they came out with it after STP tune up in a can had been taken off the market. it basically does the same thing but the STP had something harmful to the environment in it so they had to quit producing it. Seafoam does the same thing and does give a noticable difference in performance.
