Default Seafoam Motor Treatment

Is AMAZING. I tried it out today, poured it on in my brake bleeder valve or whatever it's called. Started to sputter after the third, So I went ahead and shut it off. I knew it was gonna smoke, but it smoked like a S.O.B. The whole front yard was engulfed in smoke, and somebody left the garage open. Sucks for them.

Went and did some hard acceleration runs and cleared that puppy out. I thought that that was an awful lot of crap... So I had my friend kyle come over, and we poured another third into his 2000 jeep cherokee sport with the 4.0.

It only has about 70k, and was owned by a dealer's son, so it was very well maintained. After waiting a few minutes, it had hardly smoked at all.

I was almost disappointed at how much gunk was cleared out, shows how much it was neglected.

Overall I am impressed, I don't really feel much of a difference in responsiveness but it idles a lot smoother for sure. Not really lopey anymore.

As far as adding it to the crank case, my philosophy is HELL NO. I believe that is strictly for oil. I wouldn't dare mix it in there.

I'll add the rest to the gas tank later.

Nope, I'm with you on additives. There are very few I trust. One thing I've found that might seem a bit odd is using limited slip additive in automatic trans fluid to soften the clutches. I first heard this from an instructor at one of the Chrysler schools who told us he wasn't officially allowed to tell us that.

Yeah, I'd have done that, but it was havin trouble suckin it all down, so I was pouring it pretty sporadically, letting it recover.
