I suppose on the newer diesels with all the stupid ass EGR lines and all, it would work to take them apart and soak the individual pieces.

I think Seafoam would have a similar effect as running gasoline in a diesel (bad)

Taken from Sea Foam's website.

Sea Foam is absolutely safe for your diesel engine when used as directed. Sea Foam has been the choice of professional diesel technicians for more than 60 years. Sea Foam Motor Treatment is 100% Petroleum, NOT A CHEMICAL, and therefore is safe to use in all diesel fuel mixtures.

What engine is it? Most likely will be a waste of time, unless it is a newer one with EGR.

I dunno...I'd be afraid of it!!

gas engines you pour it in till it stalls, let it soak, then fire it up and blow it out. but you've got spark plugs to ignite the gunky mess after it soaks.

in the diesel, you don't have spark plugs, so...what if it doesn't start back up?

I dunno...if they say it's ok, then it's probably ok...just make sure you follow their directions for use in a diesel to a T!!

If it is a turbo diesel I would stay away from it, you don't want all the junk in your engine going through your turbo.

I personally would not. If you want to help clean up the injectors, run a good additive.

it was a dodge I would not use it, but since its a ford go for it :jester:

j/k
LOL yeah i had to get rid of my dakota. it couldn''t tow what Im planning on getting. Well i guess it could but it woudl be at its limit. not worth it to me. Safety and destroying a perfectly good running vehicle is not my cup of tea.
