Here I go thinking again

Would Seafoam work in a GW radiator too?

Apply, run awhile, drain and refill? :?:

Wake in the morning and re-read your post.

Oil and water still don't mix.
Question is understandable since SeaFoam seems to be a cure-all.

Know its new taste and be loyal, you'll know when to change that oil.
Taste testing as the miles flow, souring as that acid grows.
And don't flirt with dirt or darkened oil, all the faster your engine will spoil.

Didn't think so but was curious since it wasn't mentioned for this post.
