    I take that back.. price went up, damn.. $10.06 for 1 can.

    PM-3 for Fords you're supposed to put half the can in, then turn the truck off and let it sit for 15 or 30 minutes. Then start it up, pour the other half in and rip ass up the road.. I think I'm going to take that approach with the seafoam.

Its like $7-8 a can, so its worth a try to get the rest of the carbon out of the parts that the fuel system never touches.

    But at the same time I've heard you're supposed to do the plugs after you suck Seafoam through the vacuum line...?

    Ive been told that your supposed to change the Plugs after sea foaming.

    It would help. You don't have to, but it's always a good thing.

    Ive always been skeptical of the stuff . Scared its going to loosen a seal or something. Also not sure what difference I will see from it.

    Maybe I'll just do my 100k tune up early. Atleast someone else has heard the same thing.

    Try it on something you don't care about much, that runs "OK" but not great. Like a lawnmower or an old snowmachine. I guarantee you good results.
    SEAFOAM, I PUT THAT @#!$ IN EVERYTHING!

    I used some the sea-foam on my truck and could see a huge difference, definitely worth it. I was a little skeptical at first, I was told to put half a bottle in the vaccum line going to the throttle body and the other half in the gas tank. It smoked a good bit but now runs better than before.

    i just sea foamed my 88 Jeep Cherokee with 229K miles on the dial. using 2 cans i sea foamed the "buh-jesus" out of my Cherokee & no smoke show what so ever. i used 2 can's all together. one full can in the gas tank & the other can - half in crank case & the other half through the brake booster vacuum line. still no smoke.

    however i can say that after the sea foam treatment, the idle was definitely a lot smoother & the throttle response was a little more stronger than before. i plan on changing the oil this weekend with a quart of lucas oil stabilizer.
