Fuel Injector Cleaning for maintenance
On my 2004 Saturn Ion 2.2 that runs perfect I was thinking about taking all four of my injectors out and bench cleaning them with some carb cleaner. Is this something you woud recommend for maintenance? My car has 219,000 miles on it but runs great!

Re: Fuel Injector Cleaning for maintenance
If you are running a decent quality pump gas and they are working properly I would leave them well enough alone you could cause problems instead of avoiding them.
Proper cleaning of injectors involves removing internal parts, fuel pressure, flow, volume /time testing, spray pattern as well as testing the electrical side of the injector. Most carburetor cleaners can damage plastics and corrode the internal parts of the injector.
A better option is call a local engine performance or Diesel shop and ask them if they offer ultrasonic cleaning and inspection service. Ive worked with D&W Diesel in the past with good luck. A proper cleaning and testing should cost between 20 and 30 bucks each. you might get a better price for a full set.
We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.
