Re: Fuel injector Cleaner available


I read the info you had on starting a motor after a long storage. Wonderful suggestions. Help me on this one!!

Some NAPA auto parts stores have the capability of cleaning injectors with some machine they use. I know that other places also offer the same service. It costs about $25.00 per injector. Do you think it's worth it? Obviously it won't fix worn injectors, but could get rid of some gunk. What do you think?
