Alright where are some other areas I can put seafoam in besides the brake booster thing? what exactly can it do and how can it help me if I put it in these other areas, what are some troubleshooting tips and some warnings I should be aware of. and other useful information you guys can tell me. Thanks for the help.

Just do half can in brake booster and the other half in the gas tank

Be sure to go slowly into the brake booster so it wont stall the truck. Also do it in the gas tank when you have 1/4 tank or less

it cleans out the sludge inside the intake manifold and the top of the pistons. it is what they do at shops for a 2 step cleaning, but insted of it being 60 dollars it is 10

To make lots of white exhaust smoke that some people seem to think has magical powers....

I mean think about it. You could dump just about anything into the brake booster and get the same result.

also put it in the oil before you do an oil change (meaning like 2 days before)
it brakes up a lot of the sludge in the engine

It's supposed to anyway, but has anyone actually seen this sludge breakdown...?

Personally, I prefer not to put any form of solvent in my oil. Ever.

If anyone is wanting to get rid of sludge in their crankcase then may I suggest an oil with a high detergent content... Makes much more sense.

saw open up you filter next oil change and look at the contents, i did it before i used sea foam and then the next time i did and i noticed a big difference. their will be more deposits

Also to anyone who uses fram oil filters and off-roads ...... STOP!!!!! i found out that they like to cave in very easily. use royal purple. they are fully steal and not aluminum also they are better
