Maybe he is Canadian? Actually last time I saw Seafoam advertised, I think Advance had a two-pack selling for $14.99 + tax.

It's 15 bucks for the can that gets you two large doses here. That's for the intake spray kind. The gas tank one is cheaper I think.

Probably nothing but something aint right.
It sounds like a blown head gasket or cracked head either way sounds like its been that way for a while since the noise your describing would probably be a rod knock and the 171 &174 codes are most likely a vacuum leak. Sounds like a new engine might be the best fix.

Thats exactly what im afraid of. I know the 171 and 174 came up after I replaced the brake booster. Might have to check it.
