Question Cleaning fuel injectors

Besides running off-the-shelf fuel additives once in a while, how are injectors cleaned? Is it something I can do on the bench?

I'm chasing a gremlin and want to rule them out before I rob $500 from someone to replace them all.

Re: Cleaning fuel injectors

There are places that you send the injectors to where they get reconditioned/rebuilt very inexpensively.

Re: Cleaning fuel injectors

Most of the places I have checked want a minunum of $100 to do a set. Plus there is the turn around time, and shipping cost.

The methods On youtube only cost a few bucks, and you remove them and have them back in the vehicle the same day...

But each person has to do what is best for them....

Re: Cleaning fuel injectors

At $60 a crack for new ones, sending them off isn't a bad idea.... in the winter.
But a 9V battery and injector pigtail is a lot cheaper.

Re: Cleaning fuel injectors

The good injector places will at least test them to see if they flow properly once cleaned.

A good place is Fuel injector connection. www.fuelinjectorconnection.com
They replace all o-rings, filters & test them for proper operation.
