Re: Seafoam Throttle Body/Intake Cleaner

I would reccomend to use BG for cleaning intakes/injectors over Seafoam. You cannot buy it over the counter though, as BG is only used by top ASE shops, who would never use Seafoam in any engine.

Re: Seafoam Throttle Body/Intake Cleaner

ive heard that seafoam is the best, but there is another company that is good, but i forgot the name...honestly there wasnt much smoke, but the throttle response was a bit better

Re: Seafoam Throttle Body/Intake Cleaner

Have we come to a general consensus on how to use Seafoam or Mopar CCC? In the last 500 miles or so I've replaced EGR valve, PCV, cleaned TB and just added a catch can tonight. While cleaning the TB, I noticed both it and the manifold, plenum, etc. were covered in burnt, caked on build-up with small oil pooling/dripping. Mine has been the worst I've ever seen. 2005 Hemi, 75K

Now that I've done all that maintenance, I am approaching an oil change and want to do either Seafoam or Mopar CCC. From what I've read, heard, seen, an aerosol spray directly into the TB is the best way to go while idling. Then once the whole can is sprayed in, put your intake back on and let it sit for 1-2 hours. Fire it back up and rev for awhile then go for a spirited drive? Oil change shortly after as well.

As a side not, how would you clean the PCV valve. Thanks

my intake looks the same, and I have 23k miles I too will be purchasing a catch can and doing the seafoam right before service...but still need to go about 1k miles before oil change...

so is the throttle blade open enough while idling to fit the little red straw into the intake? and let it sit for an hour huh? soak it while it is @ operating temp right? then fire her back up after hour soak, idle and rev, then serious drive? double clarifying

and X2 on PCV cleaning??

Re: Seafoam Throttle Body/Intake Cleaner

Successful 'seafoaming' experience yesterday

I cranked the engine, put 1/3 gas, 1/3 crankcase, pulled off the booster line and 1/3 SLOWLY into the hose with a narrow funnel. I had help, my brother held the RPMs up as I poured the foam into the booster line. It almost stalled out a few times (maybe I was pouring too fast ) but we saved it from stalling.

Waited the 20 minutes, fired it up and cleared out the smoke. There wasn't much smoke (75k miles) so I'm glad that the engine has stayed rather clean.

After some spirited driving, about halfway home I could start to feel the engine response picking up and a more consistent powerband. I'm not a sucker for these miracles in a bottle, but I caved in due to the info. on JG. This stuff works and I recommend it on a higher mileage vehicle.

I had the oil changed today to wash out all of the contaminants and everything is good to go!

Thank you to ALombardi for the video, it really put things in perspective. It's a simple task. Also thank you to everyone else for the information between this thread and Tony's thread.

I'm not sure about the blade, I'd imagine you'd want someone holding the RPMs steady 1000-2000 while spraying after up to operating temp. I've seen times to let it sit anywhere from 5 mins-3 hours. I would guess the longer the better. Then put intake back on, fire up, rev, drive.

I just bought a new PCV, there has to be a way to clean it with such a simple design.

Re: Seafoam Throttle Body/Intake Cleaner

All the cans i've read said to wait a few min. not hours.I can see a little more time can "soak in" better ,but too long (I'd think) would dry out again.
with drive -by-wire the comp will rev the engine all by itself (took a while before i got mine to stall)

Re: Seafoam Throttle Body/Intake Cleaner

Have any of you guys had any trouble after reinstalling the throttle body. I went to put on a spacer for my '12 wk2 and it turned out that the spacer didnt fit. I simply just rebolted the throttle body back on without disconnecting any wires or anything. Since i did that my low end throttle response and idling is deffinately off. its idling around 550 which seems really low..Anyone have this issue before or some suggestions? please and thanks

If you cleaned your throttle body, then you have to reset the ECU. Mine threw a code for low idle until resetting it. To reset, Just remove the battery negative cable for about half an hour, reconnect it and it will automatically reset the idle, etc..

Oh, throttle body spacers do nothing, but taper porting the stock throttle body does help a lot with throttle response across the rpm range.
