Default explorer seafoam

So i ran it through the engine because it ran like crap and no white smoke? I am confused, it has 262k miles and i am 99% positive it has never been cleaned before

Was it running when you put it in the brake booster line?

That's weird. Because I could seafoam my truck (1800 miles) & it would smoke if I poured seafoam thru it. If it's cleaning out a lot of carbon it will be brown, or black, or grey smoke coming out. If the engine is clean the smoke will be white.

You're planning on changing the oil and plugs right afterwards aren't you?

when i ran it through my truck with 160k it only smoked when i put it through the vacume line, and just a little bit when i started it back up after puting it in everywhere else. i thought it was weird it didnt smoke that much because im pretty sure the previous owner never seafoamed it and its got such high miles
