CAMMANDOE is spelled Commando.

Might want to fix that in your signature before continuing to post so you don't look like a (insert name here) than you already do.

Wow, I really got under your skin to keep this thing going.....LMAO.

Okay, so i seafoamed mine today. I couldn't get it to die (AND I DUMPED ALOT IN, FAST!) then I let it sit, and just like you said, it smoked like a train. But the smoke was white. I would think it would be black if i were blowing out a bunch of carbon. I've been running gummout fuel system cleaner alot and it's suppose to clean out the carbon, maybe i just didn't have any. I don't know.
Anyway I looked all over mine and the best place it seemed to put it in was the driver side vacume hose for the PCV. It goes in right under the throttle body, i could'nt tell where the brake booster hose went to, it just hits a metal tube and disappears behind the engine.
Thanks for the info. Bye the way, how often should this be done?

James, mine didn't want to die either, but I suppose I got luckier than you and it died after a minute. All in all I wound up pouring a bit more than the original third of a can I recommended. Also my smoke was white as well. I don't know if smoke of a certain color means the 'cleaning' is more or less powerful. As for the technical procedure, I am not sure what the throttle body is exactly. However, is it possible you're doing this on a different gen F150? I haven't had my truck long enough to seafoam it more than once, however, I once heard that every 60k or so is good. Anyone else want to back this up or refute?

Oh yeah, mines an 04. Anyway sounds like it worked just fine then. I used about 3/4 of a bottle. It did its job, I guess, because it smoked out the neighborhood!
Is there any before and after pic of internals out there? That would be cool!

Did this last night. Couldn't get mine to die although it def spluttered when adding to the vac line. Did about 1/3 in the vac line, shut the truck off, 1/3 in oil and gas, waited 30 mins and fired it up. Started first try, def blow some white smoke but not TONS. But a good bit, enough to make me happy I didn't do it in the garage.

Took it for a post drive, didn't really feel any noticable difference but I wasn't looking for power, just cleaning out gunk internally for engine longevity wise....

Good write up OP, it was helpful, thanks!
