ON InjectorDirt can cause clogging, which in turn causes various engine problems. These problems include increased fuel consumption, poor performance, and polluting emissions.

What do we need?
- Solvent under pressure
- With the engine off, open the hood and locate the fuel injector. You may need to refer to the vehicle’s manual if you are unfamiliar with the geography of the engine.
- Make sure that fuel does not enter the injector when the engine is started by either attaching a hose connecting the inlet to the fuel outlet or by disconnecting the pump and blocking the fuel outlet.
- Connect the hose of pressurized solvent to the injectors and start the engine.
- Let the solvent run through the running engine.
- Switch off the engine and pull the plug out of the socket.
- Reconnect the fuel and pump lines. Start the engine and see if it works better. If you don’t notice any changes at all, repeat the process. If it continues without improvement, you’ll have to disassemble the injectors to clean on a workbench.
