Hey guys, I posted a question about seafoam earlier, and figured out a good spot to put some of the seafoam in is the evap solenoid, can someone show me where this is? Also, the spray version of seafoam is for use in the throttle body, can someone show me how to get to this... (i believe you disconnect a hose, and then press the pedal and the blades show??) ...thank you guys, I tried googling around to find any complete engine diagrams, but i couldnt find any...hopefully someone can help me out

they are the ignition coils, there is one for each plug, you disconnect the connectors and remove the bolt (10mm?) and the plugs are underneath

There are 2 different locations depending on if you are a 2.0L or a 2.4L. The 2.0L is in the video above, the 2.4L is behind the cylinder head between it and the firewall.

Thanks for the response! Ok so, I do not try to pour the seafoam through the nipple when I take the hose off, I should unbolt the evap solenoid and take it out and pour it through the opening? And it's ok to start the car when the evap solenoid is disconnected?

Mine is the 2.0, also can someone explain/show me were the throttle body is, so I can spray the blades?

The throttle body is under the intake manifold. Follow the charge tube on the drivers side of the car back towards the engine, there will be a rubber hose that attaches from the charge tube to the throttle body. It will not be very easy to spray the throttle body, FYI.

Ok thanks, maybe I'll just try through the evap solenoid, it says you could use a brake line hose as well, but the evap seems like it would distribute the seafoam more evenly

Thank you :) ...also am I right in thinking I need to unbolt and take off the evap solenoid to put the seafoam in, because If in the video he said if u blow on the nipple u should not be able to pass air through it, so I doubt I should try to pour it there??

Correct, you should not try to pour the seafoam through the evap solenoid.
