What is the best fuel injector cleaner?

Usually, the price will dictate what is the best injector cleaner. "Injector cleaner" is misleading since most "cleaners" you buy do not clean but rather prevent more buildup in the injector tip. An auto shop does have a cleaner though where the fuel system is disabled and the car ran on a bottle for 15 minutes. Knocking and tapping differences are is the question of the century. A tapping noise will come from injectors or the valvetrain in general and is much more subtle than a knocking noise which usually is much louder cam or crankshaft noise indicating failed bearings.

It will throw a trouble code, but that will clear.

Fuel injector cleaner that you mix with a tank of gas, doing anything else to your fuel injectors to try to clean them can, and will likely end up damaging the injector itself, or the o ring seals that maintain fuel pressure. I have changed my injectors myself before, and they don't usually come out easily, or without breaking the plastic electric connector. Good old injector cleaner from time to time will do wonders, and keep system running smoothly.

What happen when you pour fuel injector cleaner directly into a throttle body injection?

You completely waste the injector cleaner. It has to flow through the ports which supply fuel to the engine to do its job.

I have the same problem off and on. I changed the fuel filter on it but what really helped was fuel injector cleaner. I'm going to put in a new wireset and spark plugs and clean the distributor caps. So basically a tune up will fix the stalling problem, it will also fix any rough idling and hesitating you might be having. First try the cleaner and see what happens.
