/ Seafoam testing #1
How does it destroy the MAF?never use Lucas or STP, All that is, is thick high weight oil. I do use seafoam on the intake prior to every oil change (and our ours the smoke deal too). The one thing he didn't do was he needed to spray the seafoam on the backside (between the engine and the MAF sensor). Seafoam will destroy a MAF sensor right now.
Wife's Ford has almost 190K on it and it runs like a top and is always quiet and still uses no oil and gets good fuel mileage. Of course I change the air filter and oil and filter every 5K miles anyway. Oil is cheap. So are filtrrs.
I've also found Seafoam to actually improve performance. I use it faithfully on all of my small engines. If it didn't cost so much I might add it to my vehicles. I think you're exactly right about Lucas. I just spent about $10 on a bottle for SO's car. Pours out like syrup. And I truly can't tell that it made a bit of difference.My opinion, the Lucas oil product is just making the oil thicker. Depending on the engine, that might help with leaks or blowby, but I doubt it’s something I would use. Seafoam, I always look at it as last resort. I’ve got an engine running bad, give it a try. I’ve used it on small engines and it helps but I’ve never dumped it in the crank case. In the case of this Ford Ranger, why not try it just like he did? At that point in the life of the truck not much to lose and it looks like it helped.
