So I'm planning on Seafoaming my WK next weekend. I've also got a new air filter, spark plugs and pcv valve to put in. My question is, should I Seafoam before or after installing the rest? Or does it even matter? I just don't want to put the new things in, then Seafoam and screw something up lol. Thanks.

Seafoam treatment first. Then replace the old and gunky stuff with all the new and shiny parts

I should also amend my previous statement to reflect that fact that you should only replace the old and gunky parts with the new and shiny parts both AFTER you've done the treatment and AFTER you've drained/replaced the oil with new stuff. Don't bother replacing parts until you've got a fresh set of oil in there.

I got anxious and went ahead and Seafoamed my WK this afternoon. Put 1 can in the gas tank, 1/2 can in the oil and 1/2 can in the vacuum. I let it sit for almost a half hour and then went our and started it up. I revved and let it idle for about 10 minutes and while I was doing so if I let off the gas it would idle real low and stall. I didn't get any smoke at all either. So I took it for a drive and the only smoke I got was a short puff when I first left my driveway. I was pretty disappointed considering the mileage (105K). On the bright side, it does seem to idle a little smoother. Oh well. Oil change will be done Monday, and I've got a new air filter, pcv, spark plugs and serpentine belt that Ill be installing later next week.

Re: How To: Sea Foam Automotive Treatment

I never saw any smoke with mine either at 99k. Then again I had already scrubbed the TB butterfly so maybe all the carbon that people report is from there. LOL well you have a 3.7L so you probably didn't have as much build up as our 5.7L oil-guzzlers (hence the need for catch cans).

Well I did all the stuff you did and I got zero smoke with my Hemi but changing the oil it was super dark with lots of oil beads so it cleaned some thing.

Re: How To: Sea Foam Automotive Treatment

I was planning on Seafoaming this weekend since I'll be doing an oil change as well. I just filled up on gas. Any detriment to putting a can in the gas tank and changing the oil after doing the booster, but before I run through a tank of gas?

Re: How To: Sea Foam Automotive Treatment

You have a full tank of gas, so put in half a can in the gas and the other half in the oil.
I'd leave it in the oil for 100-150 miles and don't rev it hard during those miles. I also shift into 4 for in town driving so MDS is not activated and all cylinders are firing during the treatment.
