I usually changed out the wagon's transmission oil every two years or so. Everything was relatively cheap and easy to do back then.
They make a product called Trans Tune that is what should go in the trans don't know if that's what you mean.

I killed a head gasket in a Ranger with Seafoam once. Also know of others that have done even worse. Increased cylinder pressures from excess fluid and fuel can hydro lock the engine or finish off a head gasket that's going bad. Pour slowly is pretty key.

I personally prefer the slow and easy method of putting it in the gas tank once in awhile. If you need harsher cleaning pour it in with 1/4 tank.
