Seafoam first, to remove deposits. Check/replace air filter. Replace plugs and coil boots, if approaching 100K miles.

I remember a couple of weeks back someone also had that pinging issue.. He said that he used premium gasoline for a couple of tanks and it went away.

Yes some good gasoline would be the best thing to do.

Yeah I just heard a ping tonight too. Only when the AC was on and I was maintaining about 50 - 55 mph. I never heard this before, I either use Chevron or QT 87 Octane.... I went to Walmart for some Seafoam, but of course they were out, so I got the Lucas oil equivalent. Does it pay to use the 89 and higher octane?

It's a good regiment to do one good tank of 93 with like a additive like 104+ and then just drive like normal.
