Tip & How-To about Jeep Grand Cherokee
I'm always a skeptic of wonder products. The "too-good-to-be-true" products usually turn out to be just that..
Well recently, I wanted to try out one of these products. Its called, "Sea Foam." You probably haven't heard of it. None of my friends in the automotive industry hadn't either. And yet, when I went to my local AutoZone, there it was, sitting right there on the shelf in the fuel additives section..
The following is my actual reaction after using it: "HOLY ****! Its amazing!!"
Okay, so now that I have established that in my case it did in fact work, let me talk a little bit about how to use Sea Foam, and how it works.
SeaFoam is a cleaning additive which can be added to gasoline, ethanol, diesel, and oil (both synthetic and conventional.)
When added to gasoline It claims that it can clean dirty carburetors and fuel injectors.
When added to diesel it claims to eliminate water in the system and keep the fuel from gelling up.
When added to the crankcase (oil,) it eliminates sticky lifters, cleans rings, and PCV valves.
I purchased their non aerosol 16oz can. I put approx 6 oz into the oil and the remaining 10oz into the gas tank. The results were almost instantaneous upon starting the vehicle. (Which is a 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 4.0 L6, approx 170,000 miles on the ODO.)
The lifter ticking was gone. The idle was smoother. Even power seemed to be higher. This product really does work..
Please note: When running Sea Foam, be prepared for light to moderate to heavy amounts of white smoke pouring out of the tail pipe. This is normal, and will wear off as soon as all the Sea Foam has passed through the system.
