Well, I'm on pins, needles & some other uncomfortable protrusion (I think it's a hair brush)!

well i put it in and it smoked some, not a whole bunch but a good little bit. Im not really noticing a difference much, but i want to clean out egr valve, can somebody explain how??? Or other simple cleanings/replacing to run smoother and make the truck last longer? How do you replace thermostat and should i get a 180*?

The way Everybody said????? dayum Everyone was just a trouble maker that got people who did not know him to do stuff like that & in the end would blow your motor...

hahaha just kidding, sorry had to do that, lol
dunno how everyone said to do it, but sea foam does work great how ever you use it. I let the engine suck down the whole can thru my brake booster vacuum line while it runs, allow it to idel for about another 5 to 10 mins then I take it out & let it blow all that nassy chit out.
The other way is add to oil & let it do it's thing over time as you drive it, add to gas as well to clean out your fuel system.

Good luck & stop worrying, it will be fine

I too did it for the 1st time yestrerday. My rig has just over 90k miles on it. I poured in a whole can into the gas tank (I have about 1/2 of tank of gas ... approx 15 gallons), I also put 1/2 a can through the line for the brake booster, and will do the other 1/2 of the can next week right before my oil change and spark plug change. I really did not get any smoke at 1st. I took it for a hard drive around the block, a few minutes after I left, a big cloud of smoke came out. After that a little trickle and a slight odor. Unsure about more power and better mileage. Either way, I am sure it helped some.
