    Thinking about seafoaming my taco and was wondering if there's any step by step instructions on doing this. Searched and only found a few threads thanks again

    I call Bullshit on this. Sure it probably works but why? I had 300K on my old taco and never did any Voodoo Magic Potion additives in it. Ran like a top the day I sold and burned NO oil at all. Just drive it and move on.

    What happens when you Seafoam it and break a big peice of carbon loose and it breakes a piston ring. Think about it

    WE GET POINTS NOW?! :rain:

    haha I use seaform in my tank since places near me might as well be running straight water, even with me using premium. But when it comes to people putting that in their vacuum lines, I'll let them do it. I'm running nice and strong at 230k miles. Bottle in the tank every now and again.

    I think you should put some Aunty Oata May's Mystery Oatmeal Extract in the Vacuum line. I hear it Douche's out the whole motor and make your radio work better

    i have put the seafoam in mine a few times. only after i have sunk my truck in mud or water. it dries up all the water out of the engine. i do 1/4 can in the vacume lines, 1/4 can in the oil right before i change it and the other half of the can in the gas tank.. and i have sucked water into my engine 4 or 5 times and done that right after and she still cranks after all those times ive sunk it. its good to do if you only do a very little and very seldom..
