Ford Seafoam Questions.

So I am going to order that seafoam from ford. And I have read a few things about seafoam in general and just have a couple questions.


Am i going to need new plugs after i do this whole operation?

What exactly can i expect to happen while i seafoam it. Like engine stalls? rough idle or smoke?

I just want to make sure if anything happens in there its normal and not me doing it wrong.

I did seafoam, plugs, then changed oil and filter afterwards... just did all together since it was time... i would wait till you need to changed oil and such then do all together since you should change oil afterwards....

I do it about 500 miles before an oil change and use 2 bottles. One in the vacuum line of the brake booster. Then split the other one between the oil and the gas tank. And 500 miles later change the oil.

Your talkin about Ford carburetor cleaner not seafoam. The stuff you get from Ford goes ONLY in your vacuum hose,NOT in your gas tank or crankcase.

I bought 2 bottles and use in both of my rangers....the 4x4 took every bit without stalling but my beater I had to add it slow.

I think the part number was (PM-3)
