Using Sea Foam in a Ford Explorer’s oil system [SOLVED]

I was told I could use Sea Foam in my truck’s oil system. It’s a Ford Explorer 4.0 liter V6 with 208,000 miles. Is it wise to do this? Is there a risk of having the engine to begin burning oil? How much Sea Foam should I use? Length of time in the engine?

Great questions Bryan. Yes, it is very helpful to use Sea Foam in your Explorer’s oil system. All you do is open the oil filler cap on the crankcase and add half a can of Sea Foam (1 to 1.5 ounces per quart in your crankcase). We recommend adding 100 to 300 miles before every oil and filter change. Adding Sea Foam to oil is safe and works to reliquefy heavier crankcase residues and deposits so everything drains away when you replace your oil. If you don’t do anything to clean the residue, the heavier/sticky forms will stay in the crankcase to build and restrict oil flow.
