Would Sea Foam help stop an engine stall from bad gas? [SOLVED]

My car quit on me at a stop sign while it was in drive and I couldn’t turn the steering wheel or anything. When I put it in park and turned the key it started up. My car is a 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis. My dad said the gas I have might be bad and this gas treatment was the best kind to use on any car, but I want to know – will Sea Foam help?

Hi June,

We always recommend taking a vehicle to a reputable repair facility in your area if you’re unsure what’s causing a problem. That said, here are a few thoughts about Sea Foam.

It is hard to say what is causing your Mercury to stall. If it is related to bad fuel, Sea Foam will help clean things up from the bad gas. It’s 100% safe and won’t mess up anything.

Here’s what I’d do: wait until you have a 1/4 tank or less. Add an entire can of Sea Foam High Mileage. Drive until almost empty before refueling.

While it’s hard to say if it will fix the problem, High Mileage is certainly worth a shot as it will clean the entire fuel system and help your car run better either way.

Also, here’s a quick article on vehicle stalls that might point you in the right direction:


Hope that helps and let us know if you have any other questions! Happy to help if we can.
