My car is 155k now. Is it risky to do the seafoaming on it?

Also, the FAQ mentioned using: Sea Foam Carbon Cleaner (2). Is it called Motor Treatment now?

Thanks,

Yep, motor treatment. There's also Deep Creep for, iirc, throttle body.

As for damaging your car... spark plugs will probably need replaced. idk much other than that.

Ive ran seafoam thru mine plenty of times and never had issues with spark plugs.

Depends on HOW dirty the car is it COULD foul the plugs.

I did my first seafoam at 155k miles and it barely smoked. I had no problems from it. Little disappointing, but it was a lot of highway driving on this car.

Is it risky...yes. So is driving but we do it all the time. If I were you I would start with half a bottle in the line and drive that for a tank or two of gas. And I mean in the vacuum line and then drive through a tank or two of gas. After that I would do the full treatment.
