Re: [DML] Cleaning Fuel Injectors

The longer the better but it will not clean them up inside. You really
have to put them into the injector tester/cleaner to get the opening
(cracking) pressures right and a nice spray pattern. Most used
injectors CAN be cleaned but every so often you come across one that
just won't work right and has to be replaced. Acetone won't damage the
injector, just remove the seal, that will melt. Mineral sprits WILL
clean them up, not soaking in it, pushing it through the injector
under high flow and pressure. If you do not have the right injectors
in the car don't waste time cleaning them. Just get new ones. If you
do not have the right injectors you now have to wonder what else is
not right. Check the #'s on the Fuel Distributer, Control Pressure
Regulator, A/F unit, etc. Don't try to set the motor up with the wrong
parts, you will pull your hair out and never get it to work the way it
should. There is a reason for every specific part that has a specific
application. As long as you can get the "right" part you should NOT
use a part that is not meant to be used. Price the parts at your
favorite Delorean vendor. On many Bosch parts you might be surprised
that they are cheaper than anywhere else (like your nearby Volvo
dealer). If you need it in a hurry just pay for premium shipping.
