i seafoamed my 96 camry today put 1/3 in the brake booster and 2/3 in the gas tank and before i did that i used deep creep on my throttle body and such.

my question is, i didnt add any seafoam to my oil, do i have to change it within 100 miles tho? im thinking no but i just want to be sure im very paranoid with my car haha

(I wouldn't use seafoam at all, especially when "im very paranoid with my car haha"). But this is just me.

If you add it to the oil, then you should change it within 100 miles or so. Otherwise, you're okay.

Seafoam is a solvent, so in the oil, it will attempt to dissolve gum/varnish, but at the same time, it thins out the oil viscosity, and could get the dissolved gum and varnish packed into the filter.

That is why an oil and filter change is recomended
