I don't understand. Are you saying Seafoam is good or bad?

as long as you don't let it stay in your oil longer than 60 miles you will have great results. Cleaned up my 87 f150 with over 150k on it. Runs like new

Shoot. That means after driving 60 miles I have to switch out the oil? I just did an oil change like a week ago.

it's recommended. You can go a good 100 miles or so. I changed mine at 75 to be safe

----------

It's only hazardous if there is a problem with the engine already that is covered up by buildup and oil residue. Like leaks. It doesn't cause an engine to leak. It just uncovers an existing one.

Oh well, live and learn. I would've kept on driving with it in there. Thank you! Guess I'll head to parts store and stock up on oil.

Added a brushed aluminum gauge overlay today. Was a bit of a pain in the ass to do as the clear plastic cover was glued on and had to be carefully removed using a heat gun and a razor blade, then re-glued together.
