Default Somebody help my car! Used seafoam!

Put in gas tank and oil and now this is happening! Sounded and acted nothing like this before! I'm sure I'm not posting in the right place, but I need help! I'm trying to upload a video but I feel like ta not working. My car now sounds like a lawnmower and very slow to accelerate. Getting the white smoke but they say that's supposed to happen

You will get lots of white smoke. That will clear up maybe after an hour of driving.

You shouldn't use in the tank unless you have at least a 1/2 tank. Too much and it can foul your spark plugs causing poor running.

It will likely clear up after some driving, but if it doesn't you may have to replace your spark plugs.

Yep i'd just drive it. Chances are it'll clear up.

How much did you add to the oil!? If you added too much your crank is slapping the oil!
