Proper Way to SeaFoam a Jeep

I've been wanting to run some SeaFoam through my Cherokee and I've been told TONS of ways to do it. But I'm not too sure the the "best" way to do it. I have an 89 Cherokee Laredo. Any help or advice would be great. Thanks.

remove the intake tube and with the jeep running, SLOWLY pour seafoam into the throttle body. if it sputters and nearly dies, pour slower. youll only need about 1/3 can. after you pour it in, let it sit for 5-10 minutes and start it up. should be a nice smoke show. i usually pour the rest into the gas tank

pour some of a rag, wipe out the inside of your throttle body. Dump some in your fuel tank. Or not.


The more I read and the more I think about it, I cannot see much need for seafoam over most of your other cleaners. I dont think it will hurt past cooking off mostly in your cats and making a not nice to breath smoke.

One place I would still use it... pouring a bit in your crankcase about 1/2 hour before your next oil change, and go for a drive around the block.

scrap the seafoam and use MMO in the gas and HM oil for the oil.

The best way to use Seafoam is to use it to clean the oil spots off your driveway. That's about it. I've used Seafoam and the changes it made it didn't amount to a pinch of $chit.

Use Mopar Combustion Chamber Cleaner if you want to clean your 'combustion chambers'. Get it from your Chrysler dealer.
