Can I use Sea Foam Motor Treatment in my 2003 Chevy Trailblazer and pour it in my gas tank? And will it help with misfire and jerking of my truck?

Thanks for the question, Benjamin.

First, you can absolutely use Sea Foam Motor Treatment in your Chevy’s gas tank. I’d recommend Sea Foam High Mileage (it’s a strong cleaner and formulated to help older vehicles run better).

Second, it’s definitely worth a shot depending on what’s causing the misfires/jerking. Here are a few thoughts about misfires:

First thing to evaluate is whether you have a faulty spark plug (or plugs), faulty plug wires, and/or faulty ignition coil. A misfire can also be caused poor fuel delivery, in which case Sea Foam might help.

I’d start with this:

  1. Add a can or two of Sea Foam High Mileage to a low tank of fuel (1/4 or less) and drive at least 20 miles.
  2. If that doesn’t help, run back to back Sea Foam Spray treatments through the intake. This is a great thing to do for any engine. Here’s a video that covers everything you need to know. (Also, I’d use a full can of Sea Foam High Mileage instead of Sea Foam Motor Treatment).

Hope that makes sense – let us know what happens and if you have any other questions, happy to help!
