Buddy and I did a good full seafoam (without putting into oil) and in doing this it cleaned up all of the.knocking.
With all of the carbon that what spit out of the engine it was no wonder there was a knocking problem. At one point the amount of carbon that was being burned off, before the truck of turned off to set for 10 minutes.... the engine did a *dieseling* effect. Meaning the carbon build up caused too much pressure in the chambers as it was trying to burn off with the seafoam and made the engine continue to combustion after the key was taken out of the ignition.
Kind sacred the piss out of me for a second... but just put the key back in and put in turn on position.... gave it a little gas and it reset itself and proceeded to turn off the truck properly.
The rest is history, as I'm sure you can tell seafoam was never used on this truck... so it needed to be done.
Yes, acceleration has increased along the board tremendously.
I don't know.... if the fuel economy has gotten better.
Yes, it was completely worth doing this entire proceedure, and I will be doing it again once I am back home from going to Virginia this week.
YES, change your oil AFTER 100 miles, and do your best to run as much gasoline out of your tank IF you put seafoam into the gastank as I did.
