Amen maintmech just go to their web page it will give you all the info you need that way you are getting it from the seafoam guys themselves and not from what every one else says... Every engine is different and could react in a different way. Mine has 215k and I seafoamed it about a month ago and I had very little smoke at all it just goes to show that not every engine will react the same..

I wouldn't seafoam the engine although I have thought about putting in the oil. Seafoam the intake though. I dropped my oil pan assuming there would be a **** load of gunk and other crap in there, to my surprise there was nothing it was clean no sludge or anything. So along as you have been changing your oil at regular intervals I would say don't put seafoam in with your oil.

thats nice to know, considering CJ-4 oil has plenty of detergents and soot dispersant already, at that point your just compromising the viscosity of the oil.

Pull the vacuum line off the brake booster. Pour the seafoam into a widemouth container (like a measuring cup) and let the vacuum of the engine suck it up into the hose in small amounts. Easier than trying to pour it into that small hose.

I run a quart of ATF in my 4.0 for a few mins before changing my oil. Then fillup with Rotella.

right, and thats a little diff. than filling the filter with it than leaving it in there for the whole OCI.

and really if your using Rotella there is no need for it, to each there own.
you could call it better to be safe than sorry.

It lubes the fuel system, fuel pump, injectors. Since we only service them every 16,000 to 20,000 miles its not like were putting it in every day. One of the guys i worked with runs it through his Grand prix and has not had a problem yet. I on the other hand would be fairly sceptical of putting it in my own vehicle unless i had a diesel
