I got the regular liquid stuff in the can. I didn't know they made a spray kind that's awesome. But I split up the can into thirds, put 1/3 in the gas tank, 1/3 in the oil / crankcase, and the last 1/3 I ran through my brake booster vacuum line as it was idling.

Then I let it sit for about 25 minutes and then started it back up. I think I killed all the mosquitos on my street lol, so something definitely got cleaned.

oo nice i didnt think of running any through the oil/crank case. how did you feed it in there? Through the valve cover? I would be nervous of getting too much seafoam running through and not enough oil.

They sell a kit with a little breather line that you feed right into the intake system right after the filter. The line curves right around and through the hose that connects to the airbox and you just keep the engine at approx. 2200-2500 RPM and slowly feed the seafoam in. If you see smoke coming out of your tailpipe, you are doing it right

That option requires more than 1 person to do it right, a few of us want to have a "seafoam" party and do it on all our vehicles and get any and all carbon build up gone

Right before you do an oil change, just add the Seafoam to the oil quantity. It'll mix up real good while your driving around for the intake cleansing you'd normally do after adding Seafoam through the vacuum. I drove mine for 100 miles, because I thought it needed more lovin' than most Jeeps lol. Then I just dumped the oil for the oil change I did this weekend. Lifters are a lot quieter now so that crap really works.

I added the Seafoam to the oil and fuel tank after I did the intake cleaning at idle. Like, I added it to the tanks during the 25 minutes it was sitting with the engine off.

I dont have a pic currently, but on your brake booster on the drivers side firewall, ( the big black circular thing ), there is a 1/2" diameter black rubber hose that's coming out of the 10 o'clock position, ( there's only one hose actually ). That's the vacuum hose I used to suck up the Seafoam, it's real easy to access and since it's 1/2" diameter you can suck up a lot of volume without hesistating the engine.
