Ok. Did half the bottle of seafoam in the vacume line for the booster. Let it suck in a lil at a time. Shut the truck off. let it sit for 15 min. Started the truck and went for about a 4 mile ride. Check engine light cam on about a mile into the ride. Got home and pulled p2196 and a p2198. I then cleared the codes. What are they. I dont have a book

Don't know the codes but guessing misfire.

Good idea to follow seafoam treatment with fresh plugs.

I had to give my truck 2 bouts of seafoam and even put it in a fresh tank of gas, the p2198 I thik is a 02 sensor code not 100% sure I have only heard that from a friend of mine who is a bus mechanic for a school district.

He said if the motor was so carboned that it might have taken out the sensor not sure without chking it.

also he said look at your plugs if a lot of carbon you will findbrown deposits and might want to change out the plugs.

Its more likely the seafoam was interfering with combustion and tripping the codes. If it doesn't come back, you're fine.

FYI, my truck pings on heavy load all the time for years. Seafoam never changed anything.
