In the old days before they added detergent to motor oil you would occasionally see engines with 50-80,000 miles on them that were so dirty that you had to shove a screwdriver into the oil drain hole in order to bust through the layer of sediment, just so the oil would drain out... I saw a 1965 Cadillac with so much sediment in the oil pan that the crank shaft had gouged out groves in the muck as it rotated. (Ask your grandpa about it)!

Just remember, this is the reason that owners manuals don't recommend 2,000 mile oil change intervals anymore... 2,000 miles actually used to be necessary, now you can easily go 5,000 on conventional oil, 25,000 miles between oil changes if you use AMSOIL oil and filter.
If there's trash in the motor, will seafoam smoke be a different color than white?

Just wondering bc seafoam only comes out white in my car.

When I seafoam, smoke comes out from under the hood where can this be coming from? Exhaust? No engine codes. Maybe. Egr leak?

Re: seafoam

in the old days we used to drop a handful of crushed walnut shells into the carb of running engine to break up carbon buildup. don't recommend it for a catconverter but it used to work great. on old engines big pile of black powder at tailpipe.

Re: seafoam

1/3 in intake, 1/3 in crank case, 1/3 in gas. Let it idle a bit, drive around and let it smoke, then come back and change your oil. (if you don't after it's in the crank case, it will eat away at your gaskets... just an FYI)
