I've Sea Foamed my '03 Expedition about 20k miles ago 150k, but not my '04. I did the "through the brake booster" technique. I think it definately cleaned things out - it was a smoke storm when I restarted it, but that is what you are supposed to get. After the soak and start through the booster, I did a can in the gas tank. Not brave enough to throw it in my oil. I've got a pair of cans to do it again, just haven't had the time.

I've read stuff like "it's just kerosene and will ruin your rings" and it'll wipe out spark plugs. (one example, another).
Since I moved away from Chevron territory, I'll add some Techron to my gas maybe once a year. That's about all I trust, but if my ride started falling apart, it's tempting to try a $10 bottle of something instead of taking it to the mechanic. I'm more worried that some gunk will get stirred up and cause worse problems.
