So you just mix it with your gas? Never used any seafoam products. Sounds like it will be worth it. My truck has about 90k on it. Still runs good but like you said its getting a bit of a rough idle and takeoff. Oil is changed religously, but as far as anything else, not so much. What else do you guys recommend? I know sometimes if you have a truck w/ a lot of miles, if you wait til then to service some parts, you could have problems which is one reason I didn't fool with it when I got it.

Yeah, i've used this on my 3000gt, haven't gotten around to doing it on my truck yet. Worked great. I've always heard to buy two cans. Put one can in a full tank of gas (20 gallons, don't know about you 32 galloners out there), put half a can in your crank case (yes I did this with no adverse effects), and the other half in your vacuum line. It will sputter and stall as you add it to your vacuum line, you can either go slow, or have a buddy help you with the gas pedal to keep it running. Once you have it all in, let it idle for a few minutes, might want to play with the gas pedal to keep it idling. Then drive it around for a few minutes. And it should smoke pretty well. Try and add half a bottle to your crank case, I wouldn't worry about it too much, just change your oil in the next 500-1000 miles or so.
This stuff works wonders on engines that have a few extra miles on them.

I know that some of the guys that I work with do it just about every 6 months through the vacum line on the brake booster and keeps there engines nice and clean but every time they do it it smokes really bad. I will do it to mine done the road but im not sure it is ready for it yet, since it only has about 10,500 miles on her right now.

After reading this review I went out and bought two cans of Sea Foam ($9.99 for 16oz.!). I bought one for the next time I fill up at the gas station and the other one is for my oil and vac lines. I do have a couple questions though...

Should I add it before or during an oil change? My truck is due for an oil change now but figured I'd ask this question first.

Where is the best place to put the Sea Foam in for the vacuum treatment? What vac line should I put into the bottle?

My 1995 Ram has 197,XXX miles on it and I'm looking forward to see if I notice any changes after the Sea Foam treatment.

Thanks!

I would put it in before your oil change. I'd change it within 100 or so miles of using the seafoam.

I would use the brake booster hose. Here is what it looks like, I know mine has a yellow tip as well.



Pour slowly. I wouldn't stall it, thats my opinion. I'm not so lazy as to let it die on it's own. After letting it suck it in, You plug it back in to the booster, and then turn it off and let it sit for a few minutes.

Thats a good amount of miles! This will be good for it!

Let us know how you play out!

I'll wait until morning and get a video of it. This will be my first time uploading a video so I'm sure it will take me the better part of an hour.

EDIT: Nevermind...I googled "How to upload a video on google" so it should only take me the better part of a minute instead.
