    Default Seafoam Help?!?!

    ok so i keep hearing about Seafoam and how it makes wonders into reality
    so i am going to take the challenge and do this but im a little skeptical about pouring it into my oil, i dont mind pouring it into my gas tank and the brake booster can guys help me out with a couple of questions

    1. is one bottle enough or do i need 2?
    2. do i need to fill up the tank to pour the Seafoam and how much to pour in their?
    3. when i put the Seafoam in the brake booster line do i let it suck it in or do i have to make it go in?
    4. if i only do the gas and brake booster do i still have to change the oil?

    If you guys have any other comments on how to do this let me know how step by step thanks

    You can put it in the gas and intake and not have to change the oil.
    On how much to put in the gas, read the back of the bottle because it has the correct ratio printed on there. Same thing for the oil.
    When you do put it in the oil, do it 100 to 200 miles before you plan on changing the oil and then watch the sludge come out of the motor.

    well i bought it and put it through, i must say i think i made my own type of cloud for the atmosphere haha because my truck has 185k and i had never done this so just imagine
    anyways for an hour i got really pissed because the check engine light turned on and right away i got my programmer to tell me that it had to do with the MAF sensor or a vaccum line so i just disconnected the battery and took it for a spin. Problem solved the light did not turn on but people over react that it does wonders i slightly felt a difference from the way it idles and goes of from a stop other than that everything else is the same

    It is some great stuff!!! I have noticed the same.. When i put it into my 304K mile blazer it made a cloud for a long long time. And now it runs better than most with 100K miles..

    You will want to do it before an oil change.. Basically it breaks down the sludge and the oil. Hence the 200 miles before you do your oil change recommendation. Also having the sludge in your oil pan for the oil pump to pick up isnt a good thing. So i would just hold off. I have to do the same thing since im not due for about 1000 miles..

    Let a couple tanks of gas go through and check you average mpg. I'm betting you're going to notice a good difference there.

    I think what type of driving, city or highway and the quality fuel you run makes a diffenrance in how your truck preforms after the Seafoaming.
