Search for “Seafoam” using the forum-wide search tool and you’ll find many posts on the different ways to use Seafoam to clean engine internals, intakes, and fuel systems. Lots of FF experience on the subject!

When I had my 05 focus I allways had a clicking noise and I bougt it woth 2 miles on it. I took it in and they said the lifters just normally make that noise and tested all their other new ones. I never got told to use seafoam at all

probably just going to do it since it says you can heh...

There is and always has been a slight clicking noise but this is REALLY loud and only once the engine returns back to idle from a rev.

How close are you to needing an oil change, Dustin?

sadly, im 1000 over but the oil is still a good, clean, color. So the seafoam might work out well. Just need to wait until i can afford an oil change myself or just to pay someone to do it before i put the seafoam in.

I've heard that you should do the Seafoam before the oil change. Not positive on that though.

yeah, it makes the oil very dirty and taxes the filter quite a bit. Dont have money for oil or a filter yet so it'll be a week before i put it in.

Cool. Let us know if that worked for ya.

Another day and a half, and it's road trip time for us. House is empty, I'm done clearing Fort Lewis and turned in our Comcast stuff. Just stuck watching movies or playing video games as we have no cable or internet, however, thanks to people who don't know how to secure their wireless networks...here I is. LOL.
