Drivers side back corner. To the left of the rubber electrical gasket. It kind of looks like a bell.

Re: How To: Sea Foam Automotive Treatment

I guess I'll be doing this before my next scheduled oil change...

Re: How To: Sea Foam Automotive Treatment

Just did this on my 2007 3.7 WK. Hardly any smoke. Only 39.8K on it though. I am sure it cleaned it up though. Will probably change my oil in the middle of the week.

Re: How To: Sea Foam Automotive Treatment

I'm gonna have to do this. Just got my Jeep about a month ago, 84,000 miles. I changed the oil right when I got it, so i'll have to wait until next change. Can't wait to try this stuff out and see the results.

I've had great results with Seafoam in all of my vehicles, I was a bit iffy about pouring directly in one of my vacuum lines at first though but it cleaned out a lot of carbon buildup.

Re: How To: Sea Foam Automotive Treatment

I have been doing seafoam on my vehicles for years.

I do my Jeep once every 10k miles or so (128k on it now) and my fiance's liberty every 5k because that 3.7L has a pretty rough idle at times and this clears it up instantly.

Here's a video of my 4.7L after the treatment. I put about half a can in this time because it hadn't been done in 15k miles. It had so much in it that it just sounds like hell off the line...I was all over the throttle and it wasn't going up above 3000RPMs but once I got that initial shit out it ran 100%.

I did the same thing, but not a lot of smoke, even though it had not been seafoamed in 99k. Oh well. I'm waiting 200 miles of driving (or at least through my full tank of gas) before changing the oil.

Re: How To: Sea Foam Automotive Treatment

Keep checking the oil with the dipstick as with that many miles, it can get contaminated quickly. If it gets dark, it is time to get it out of there, or else it can cause more damage by keeping it in there than it would t0 keep running it for more miles.

OK well now that I'm sufficiently paranoid, I'm just going to drain it tomorrow when I get a second. Should have driven like 50ish miles by then lol.
