WaterDR Label states to use 1.5 Oz per quart and can be used before oil change or for long term use.

It does state to change oil when it becomes dirty. I change my oil twice a year which is about 2,000 miles.

WaterDR Maybe a third to a half. A full can is 16 Oz.

TJspeed so you just dumped the whole can in to the motor?

WaterDR Nope. Just tossed it in. It is such a small amount. According to Seafoam you can keep in the entire oil change cycle and I know guys that use it all the time.

I will probably add more right before the next oil change and then perhaps add new oil without it and see what happens.

I am a chemical engineer but i don't claim to know what will happen and how the inside of the motor looks. I just know I had a tick and it is now gone.

I-Want-A-Jeep So did you replace "x" amount of oil with the half can of sea-foam?

How many miles on your rig? I've used sea-foam in the gas tank but have always been skeptical with it in the engine oil. Especially for 3 months!!!

Lifter tick is gone!

When the weather got cool, my lifters started chattering like cold teeth. Used High Mileage Valvoline Synthetic blend and a half a can of Seafoam and after two or three tanks of fuel (which is about 3 months for me) there is no sign of chatter no matter how cold it gets.
