Re: How To: Sea Foam Automotive Treatment

just adding to the thread, for you 4.7L WJ-ers who are unsure (like me), i did a bit of research and here's the brake booster line




i picked up some cheapo castrol engine oil and a cheap fram filter today, gonna seafoam the WJ tomorrow, drive it around for a day, and then change the oil. Then in a month I'll swap over to full synthetic with a wix filter. I'll post back with my results

Re: How To: Sea Foam Automotive Treatment (6.1L)

Anyone Seafoam an SRT8 6.1L? If so where do you pour it in? In the front at the PCV or by the throttle body and in the brake booster lines? Pics please so I don't eff up .

I'd like to do 1 can in the lines and the 1.5oz per litre of oil before my next oil change. I've just done a highway trip and did the 1oz per gallon in the fuel.

Re: How To: Sea Foam Automotive Treatment

Well I did this today while plasti dipping my wheels and my rear chrome strip. I sat there for about 10 minutes reving and letting it idle and was getting nothing so I thought I didnt have much build up to burn off so me and a friend headed to a gas station and as we pulled in smoke just started filling up the entire lot lol We were smoking all the way home. I think it worked although I could not notice an immediate difference.

Re: How To: Sea Foam Automotive Treatment

You have to wait like 20 minutes or so for it to work through, just in case you didnt end up doing that

Re: How To: Sea Foam Automotive Treatment

i did this today to my 05 5.7 hemi. i bought 2 cans, put half of a can in the gas, the other half in the oil. then took half a can and mixed it with half a can of gas, which equals another full can but 1/2 strength, and poured it slowly into the brake line. i stalled it a few times but after about 10 minutes of slow pouring with my wife giving it some gas, i finished.

mine has 100K miles, had think white smoke for about 2 minutes, then it almost completely stopped. now it only smokes for a second when i crank it. im gonna leave my mobil1 synthetic in until a normal scheduled oil change.

sees to idle a little better and has less hesitation.

Re: How To: Sea Foam Automotive Treatment

Well I took the Seafoam plunge yesterday evening on my 6.1 through the brake booster vacuum line (1/2 can in vacuum line, 1/2 can in fuel tank) and let it sit for 20 minutes. After I fired my beast back up I got a tiny puff of smoke, once I hit the throttle (not WOT but aggressively) it seemed to gurgle & hesitate initially and then the smoke show began. Once it worked it's magic I did notice a bit more responsiveness. I previously did the 1oz per gallon of fuel treatment on a highway trip a few days ago and I added the extra 1/2 can when I did the vacuum line treatment. I'm going to do the oil treatment on Sunday as I'm going to bring it in for an oil change monday morning along with regular scheduled maintenance. So far I'm pleased with the results and plan on repeating every 25,000KM.

Re: How To: Sea Foam Automotive Treatment

I started doing the whole triple treatment on my grand am a few years back. I always did a full can oil, full can gas tank, and at least a half in the vaccuum line. One trick I learned off a grand am forum to keep from stalling the vehicle is to use a cool whip or similar plastic container to pour the Sea Foam into, then let the vaccuum line suck it up slowly. It's a lot easier to regulate flow this way. If you direct the end of the line to the edge of the sea foam in the container when you tilt the container slightly, you can get a nice flow of Sea Foam while keeping good vaccuum and keeping the engine running. good writeup!
