injection service

8 posts in this topic

Wondering if anyone has had fuel injection service done to their vehicle. Seems like all garages even walmart offer this service at a wide range of prices. It sounds like the process is all the same, just the product used is different. Is this worth the money? Or is using sea foam or other like additives do the samething? To me it just seems like another way to waste money on an expensive service that I could do by buying stuff off the shelf and stick it in the tank.

I have been a believer in the pressurized service for injectors done at the shadier valve on the fuel rail. I have also been told the gas tank treatments are good as well.

I will also add, I have never heard of any injector being replaced because of it being clogged wink.

That could just be me though. grin

Check out AMSOIL Performance Improver gasoline additive. It is the strongest cleaner/additive product on the market today. It is so good that AMSOIL guarantees you to get a fuel economy increase! Cleans injectors, carbon, emission sensors, improves performance and increases fuel economy. At $10.50 to treat a 20 gallon tank once every 4000 miles it is a very cheap alternative.

If the amsoil fuel system cleaner is half as good as the oil I will have to give it a try.

My Sub won't run without the intake system fully connected. How do you fool the sensors so that you spray the upper throttle body and components?

just a word of advise be sure not to use any cleaners near the mass air flow sensor as it could ruin the protective coating. where i work our fuel injection cost around 130 includes tank treatment,intake cleaner, and tank treatment. i have recommended and use sea foam in my vehichles and atv (seems to improve the milage and run better) hope i was helpful

Clean the throttle body with engine off. Or you can unplug the MAF if you want to spray with it running. Otherwise you can use a top end cleaner by removing a vacuum hose (the one that goes to the brake booster or to the PCV are the two common ones). Start the vehicle, remove the hose, pinch off slightly, slowly poor in the cleaner (do this with a fully warmed engine). Use about half in this way then poor in the rest fast enough to stall the engine. Let it sit for 10 to 20 minutes and then restart. Enjoy the smoke screen and hope your neighbors don't call the fire department!

I have worked at a dealership for 23 years and have never flushed my injectors on any of my vehicles. I have cleaned the throttle bodys and IAC though. I also don't try to sell customers a flush because in most cases it is a waste of money.

    • Great pictures and even better memories.
    • Feb. 18, 2017 Chelsea Clinton took to Twitter this week asking her followers for some help identifying synonyms for the words “sick,” “horrifying” and “awful.” “I need a thesaurus. What’s another word for horrifying? Sick? Awful? Running out of adjectives these days that mean unconscionably terrible,” Clinton tweeting, linking to a story about an illegal immigrant who was detained when she sought a protective order against a domestic abuser. Clinton received a lot of responses, but one Twitter user gave Clinton an answer she never expected. That user is Juanita Broaddrick, one of the myriad of women that has accused Clinton’s father, former President Bill Clinton, of rape or sexual abuse. Broaddrick alleges that Clinton raped her in 1978 when he was attorney general of Arkansas. She responded to Clinton’s request by tweeting, “Well, since you asked, Here’s my definition of horrifying, sick & awful. Answer: Your father, Bill Clinton.” Twitter was entertained — and many thought Broaddrick should have added Clinton’s mom, twice-failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, to the list of synonyms for “horrifying” as well:  
    • Sonar units continue to be an anglers best friend. Still some suspended fish out there. Working every fish hard is key. Some fish are players and some pretenders. A good tullibee and perch bite in some areas amongst walleyes / saugers. The anglers working a spoon and a dead stick with a plain hook and minnow are doing good.  Key depth  29-33 ft in the morning/afternoon and 17-24 before dusk.  Best colors continue to be glow red and gold on jigging spoons tipped with minnow head or tail. Snow pack on the lake is disappearing and ice is still very good.   The Rainy River morning and evening bite has been okay. Know the river or use a resort or guide for safety. Warm weather and current will effect areas harsher than others.   The snowmobile trail is staked from Wheeler's Point to Baudette on the river.  Do not deviate from trail unless you are familiar with ice conditions.   Up at the NW Angle, fishing has really picked up. The dead stick is producing the most fish with depths under a foot off of the bottom. Lots fish in the slot, as well as some over 28 inches! On the Canadian side, walleyes are being caught in transition zones, with gold and pink and whites being the hot colors. The crappie bite is at 30 ft plus in the mud with Tungsten jigs tipped with plastic. Jigging spoons with a minnow head are also producing fish. Remember to move on to another species after you have your limit of crappies as these fish have a high mortality rate over 25' of water. Work through resorts and stay on ice road. Fish houses can stay on ice through March, walleyes/saugers through April 14th.  
    •   Because some door knob Atheist on a Fishing forum keeps bring it up even though they don't believe in it-oddly?  
    • 23 games in 41 days after the mandated break, and the horrid streak for teams after their break contiunes i think its like 3-13-4.  That is going to put a lot of strain on players playing that many games in that short amount of time.  We will probably be seeing Kemps at least once a week I would guess, but if he can be remotely close to his last start we should be alright.
    •   Where do you get your info?            
    • Thanks for the additional advice. I had been thinking that I didn't need the fancy EPS, ESP, etc.
    •   We don't need Jesus for that - Trump's already got it covered....
    •   Yup.   Being the policeman for the world is straining our finances but some seem to be blind to the fact that inviting more people to come over and risking more going on an already unsustainable welfare state will have the same effect.     Of course, we can continue to just print the money we need. And I don't think Jesus will be performing a Loaves and Fishes type miracle with our currency anytime soon.   I'm beginning to get what Del meant when he said go far enough to the right and you eventually become the left
