I would suggest a oil and filter change a few days after. Your oil will be black and watery.

Dan as much as youve helped me i would love to send it as a token of my thanks but the dealership would prolly not employ me much longer afterwards so i must decline... lol

but i did get a code... P0325 - Knock sensor
think it could be the cause of the roughness? for the longest its been on along with P0171 Fuel Trim Lean... think its the sensor causing both or the seafoam or just something else?


Good luck and get the video lol it would be a nice addition to one of the famous "Dan'* DIY" write-ups

You need to do what'* right, and that'* to think of me first.

As for the codes, I'll bet that'* from the seafoam. P0171 comes up a lot with a vac leak and O2 sensors. If you cleared the codes, just watch to see if anymore come up.

did... under load it came back immediately

underload = slight powerbraking attempt (brake held, light amounts of throttle, code pop-up)

Then you will need to get your knock sensors checked. If possible, get your AFR checked. If your running real lean you can get knock. Or if your running less then 93 octane.
