Many many folks swear by "seafoam" as well. Never used it myself..but its all word of mouth advertising..so maybe its better than some?

Wally World has it around here.

At InjectorRx.com, you can have the injectors professionally cleaned for $18 per injector. It might be better than throwing money at cleaning fluid.

Ouch...18 bucks per injector? A brand new injector for mine is only $33....I think I'd drop $7-8 on a can of wonder cleaner first...lol

Cleaning includes an ultrasonic cleaning, reverse flush, and flow balancing the injector set. This gets rid of the insoluble contaminants. Keep that in mind if the cleaner doesn't do the job.

I would use Sea Foam. If you have a problem with a dirty fuel system (barring the filter) you'll notice a big difference in about an hour of driving. I use it in everything gasoline or diesel.
