Awesome!

All that smoke is the crud burning off your valves...we used to use ATF in carbureted motors to do the same thing. Poured it into the carb slowly - it would create massive clouds of white smoke. First time I did it someone called the local fire dept. By that time I was done and in the house, they never did figure out where the smoke came from!

Dang bud, I missed this thread.

I just seafoamed tonight

For anyone wondering, seafoam is intended as engine treatment and as a fuel additive. To run it through the engine, pour it in the throttle body, or find a vacuum line that goes into the intake. Ideally, you want the seafoam concentrate to be equally proportioned into your cylinder heads by mixing with the air that is going into the engine itself. On my 5.2 [engine warm] I remove the Airhat, pour the seafoam into the TB keeping the revs up to keep it from stalling until half the can is gone. I either kill the engine or shut it off. I pour the other half into the tank [16 oz treats 25 gallons, so 8oz treats my near-full tank of 12 gallons]. I wait 20 minutes and go out and start up the truck.

The crankcase treatment is legitimate. Add the seafoam within 1-2 days of an oil change. It removes sludge and moisture. Again, it can work so well that the sludge falls off and could get sucked into the recirculation. That is why you add it, drive around, and get your oil changed soon thereafter.

I will be posting a thread in a few minutes with my treatment video.

I have used it on all of my vehicles and it really works wonders calming down higher mileage engines (this truck is the first vehicle I've owned with under 100,000). I use it through the brake booster, in the gas tank and in the crank case. I was always nervous about the crank case so I would pour it in, let it run for 10-15 minutes then change the oil.

As an added benefit it works great for detecting exhaust leaks
