Good instructions. These would work for us to. Only consider a bit less in the crankcase as we have less oil. One thing that has worked well for me is to take some tubing that will reduce the brake booster vacuum line so that an inflation needle (the kind for a football) will mate up. Inserting this into the seafoam works like an oriface to limit the flow into the engine.

I did this with my dad's 96 F-150 with 135,000 miles. It was unreal how much better his truck ran, and it was also fun fogging all the mosquitoes with the carbon deposits out of his truck.

we have more oil than an LT1/LS1. they are 5qts and we are closer to 6. i have never used seafoam but everyone on the jeep forum im on raves about it.

i used amsoil power foam in my 87 monte carlo SS, it was funny to watch her blow smoke rings out the tail pipes.

it looks like the original poster has a first gen, if it is the 3.3 it holds 3.5 qts and the 2.4 holds 4 i think.

but this is def a good write up on how to do this, we do it all day at work its pretty much the same on every car we do

After reading this write-up, I decided to go out a do this to my Fronty. God knows I need all the help I can get getting better gas mileage (13city/17hwy), maybe cleaning out some deposits might help.

Anyway, I added the proper amounts to the fuel and oil. I'll be getting my oil changed within the week anyway so might as well give it a cleaning.

Then I added the proper amount into the vacuum line with the truck running. Definitely made some nice white clouds of smoke. Turned it off and let it sit about 5 min or so, then went for a drive. WOW did I make some GET AWAY smoke. After a couple of red lines it was all cleared up again.

Now pray to the gas gods I get some better mpgs

yep, the 2.4 holds about 3.75 qts. the deal is, im not sure on how many miles I should do this at. im pretty close to 44000 if not over (havent checked in a good 2 months i believe) so i was thinking at 50k I was going to change the tranny oil, diff oil, engine at whatever interval it was at, sea foam, and do another fuel system cleaner even though the sea foam pretty much does everything. plus check if every bolt that I can see is tight and get a full professional detailing job.

i've used seafoam in several vehicles (including a KA24DE 240sx, same motor as a gen1 4 banger), it worked great. i don't know about using it on a newer truck, most of the ones i've used it on were older vehicles with 100k+ miles. just be aware that after you put it in the brake booster line it's going to smoke really bad and knock when you try to drive it. some people say it fouls spark plugs. i never had a problem with this but it may have to do with the plugs (gen 2's use iridium, not the old style plugs, so that may change things, i don't know)
