How To Clean Fuel Injectors

Learn how to clean fuel injectors today to keep your car running without any problems. Cleaning fuel injectors is time-consuming so set aside at least an entire afternoon or morning to work on cleaning them. Before you get started, you are going to need to run over to your nearest auto parts store to gather some parts.

Materials needed:

  • Fuel injector cleaning kit
  • Car guide (if you know where you fuel injectors are located, you do not need to purchase this)
  • Safety goggles
  1. The first step to cleaning your fuel injectors is to wear safety goggles at all times. Now that you have your goggles on, open up the hood of the car and locate the fuel pump. Turn off your fuel pump, then locate your fuel injector.

  2. The second step to cleaning your fuel injectors is to hook up the pressurized solvent to the fuel injectors and start the engine. Let the pressurized solvent run while you have the engine on.

  3. The third and final step to cleaning out your fuel injectors is to turn off the motor and remove the pressurized solvent. After you have done that, turn the fuel pump back on.

Congratulations! You have finished cleaning out your fuel injectors.


  • You may need to take your car to a mechanic to get your fuel injectors taken out and cleaned if your car's performance does not improve. This should run you between $30 to $50. It is not worth the money to go out and purchase the equipment to do it yourself.
