You can spray (with carb spray or special fuel injector linkage spray) the linkage around the throttle body, but the injectors, which are really the main part of the system are always being cleaned with gas while you drive. Gas is a great cleaner, so the simple answer is "no". That's one of fuel injection's big advantages over older style carburated systems, that needed cleaning and rebuilding sometimes. I've bought those fuel injecting cleaners that you add to a full tank of gass but they didn't do much. Drive them until they fail. You can check the electrical conections to the injectors, but there's no need for any routine maintenance.

Add a fuel injection cleaner into the fuel tank or go to a garage that has a fuel injection service machine.

Diesel fuel injection service allows you to fill you car will fuel that will allow for your car to travel further. Diesel is typically used by trucks.

Fuel injection service generally means running a cleaning solution through your fuel system. It removes the carbon buildup and makes the injectors spray more effectively.

No they are not but should be done in conjunction with eacd other. Fuel injection cleaning is what it says to be. Induction cleaning is cleaning the throttle butterfly and the the intake, back of the valve and combustion chamber.

It would be a good idea to add a bottle of fuel injector cleaner to your gas tank at every 3000 mile service. Other than that, your fuel injection system should not need any other service.
