hey everyone. as some might know i might have stuffed injectors. i was thinking of pulling them out and getting them cleaned but.....it would cost me about 130 bux or something to get them done :S. so i thought about cleaning them myself (not recommended i know). i was thinking of getting some of those injector cleaner things and pour it into a shallow tray. dip the tips of the injectors in there for a while. then pump some of the injector fluid through it using an old fuel pump..........is this wise or just stupid?

phong =P~

i have an EA in the process of being wrecked....wel it already is. im taking the whole fuel rail, regulator and injectors out as the one piece. connect it to the existing fuel line in the EA......put the spare fuel pump i have (which was broken so i hope it like works a tad) and yeah make a whole external fuel system.

now to open the injectors........i think ill use a spare battery or get a variable voltage supply (not sure how much voltage injectors are) and yeah work from there. i don't think i have anything to lose?

phong =P~

Sparks (loose wires/bodgy joints) and fuel mist are an explosive combination. Besides I think that injectors get professionally cleaned ultra sonically and you could not match this with the method you describe.

Damn, good thing I got new injectors for like 170 lol.
Phong, pulling the fuel rail off and getting the injectors out, and then putting it all back in on the EL is a damn well pain in the a** :p.
