    Default Sea Foam walk through?

    I searched for and re-read 2COR517's post from last July about adding sea foam through the booster vacuum hose. I've been considering this for a while, but want a little more info on how to go about it.

    It just as easy as pouring it in the tube? Do I need a buddy to keep the truck running? Do you throttle it to get it good 'n clean?

    Thanks for your input.

    My dad used transmission fluild 1/2 quart down the carb once a year. I would be worried about doing it to a newer motor with all the crap on them. The video did say how long to run Seafoam in your oil??

    all you have to do is pour about a third of the bottle in.make sure you do it slowly because if you pur it in to fast the truck will bog out and shut off. It takes a little while to get the third of the bottle in. Let the truck sit for about five to ten minutes with the engine off then crank her over and watch it pour out the white smoke ha its a gassers ways to smoke someone out.

    When you use this in the oil and it cleans the bigger slug out can it clog anything up?

    Thanks

    It is supposed to break the sludge down so it will filter thru, and or stay in the bottom of the pan.
