AKRON, OH & PACIFIC, MO – There are few things more troubling for vehicle owners than engine knocks. Maintenance professionals know it could be the sign of serious problems, like piston trouble or bad lower bearings. On the other hand, it could be something much different and far less costly to repair. That’s where the S.U.R.&R. FIC903 Intake Cleaner system in combination with Sea Foam Motor Treatment can provide critical maintenance which would make a pricey and time-consuming engine overhaul unnecessary.

This topic was tackled recently by 4WD Mechanix Magazine during an in-depth look at a problem with a Jeep inline six engine, which was presenting noises that sounded like a serious engine knock. But the initial diagnosis suggested other possibilities.

“Before tearing our Jeep 4.0L engine apart, we thoroughly cleaned the top end and injectors with S.U.R.&R.’s professional grade tools and Sea Foam® Motor Treatment,” according to article author Moses Ludel. “In most instances it would be wise to attempt these tuning measures first. If the knock remains, there is more serious trouble.”

Here is a detailed video that shows exactly how the team addressed the problem “with each step involved and the impressive results delivered.”

“After just over an hour of actual shop time, our engine ran reliably and noise free without the need for major work,” Ludel noted. “Quality S.U.R.&R. tuning and diagnostic tools save time and costly engine repairs. By cleaning the top engine with the FIC903 Intake Cleaner system, we tackled 176K miles of carbon and debris buildup in the intake ports, the valves, the piston crowns and the combustion chambers.”

When used with Sea Foam Motor Treatment, S.U.R.&R’s FIC 903 Intake Cleaner removes gum, varnish, and carbon deposits from Air Intake Systems, Combustion Chambers, EGR Valves, Intake Valves and Oxygen Sensors. The treatments provide more thorough cleaning than other methods and help increase gas mileage.

‘The time saved and pinpoint diagnostics separate ‘parts changers’ from real techs. S.U.R.&R. tools offer exceptional value, quickly paying for themselves!” Ludel wrote.
