My service engine light came on and off several times, so I took my 1998 olds regency to the shop this morning to have it checked and inspected. I was told that two of the fuel injectors needed cleaning or replaced, but the cleaning had to be done by machine and not by using additives in the fuel tank. The cleaning will cost me $189. They will not guarantee that this will cure my problem but if it don't then I am looking at replacing those injectors for a price of over $500. I guess I'll see what happens....just wanted to share this with another olds owner. If the cleaning or replacement is really as costly as is indicated here, I think I'd look for a new mechanic. I had two injectors replaced in my '96 recently. They cost $76 each at Auto Zone and my mechanic replaced them (one at a time, a week's time apart) for a case of beer each time. It's really a job you can do yourself, but I think you'll need some Torx sockets to remove the metal rail that holds the injectors in place. You also need to take a good look at how the accelerator cable (and cruise control cable if you have cruise) connects. My mechanic put some Vasaline type of lube on the injectors before she seated them. Sounds like you could use a Haynes or Chilton manual. FriPilot
SEAFOAM! I've tried lots of additives to clean injectors on my own 1985 F-150, 302fi. I empty 1 can of it about every 6 months into a full tank of gas. I've never had any issues with reliability or smooth performance from my truck.
Clean fuel injectors are important in keeping an engine running smoothly. To clean the fuel injectors a person can take them out, clean them off, and by adding a cleaning agent to the gas tank to clean them from the inside out.

Yes, the fuel additives work by helping clean out the deposits left by carbon and ethanol.

Gasoline will not dissolve the carbon deposits that clog the injectors but it will cause your engine to not start.
It's probably time to get a new vehicle. sounds like poor fuel at the engine and that the injectors are dirty. Use engine tuneup additives in the gas to clean out the injectors and internal chambers. You should experience increasing performance as you drive about one tank of gas.
your injectors are blocked replace or clean id clean because it cost's £167 each for the injectors new
easiest way to clean injectors is to purchase a good (not cheap) injector cleaner, and add to you fuel tank. from experience, i double dose the amount first time round, then add correct amount to fuel about once a month. this will keep injectors clean and will not damage engine
Clean the injectors
Any car with spark plugs will have cleanable fuel injectors, so yes.
Dirty fuel injectors can lead to poor vehicle performance. The best way to clean the fuel injectors on this car would be to use fuel injector cleaning products, that are placed in the gas tank.
Your injectors are probably clogged. Replace your filter, and make sure your lines are clean.
Replace them with new ones.
how to clean fuel injectors
clean your injectors.
Just take new ones:)
check tire pressure is correct, get clean air filter, make sure carb is clean & not filled with tarnish(they have cleaners in a can you can spray into old carbs that clean it without harm, read directions), or have fuel injectors checked/replace if bad, change oil every 3,000 miles.
As long as your fuel treatment contains a detergent. Xtreme Fuel Treatment contains a detergent and a demulisifier and polymerization dispersants to clean injectors, separate water and break up sludge.
thank you very much
